A law firm focused on people and collaboration. For the past 125 years, Withers has supported some of the world's most remarkable people and organisations at defining moments in their lives. We are the only international law firm focused on successful individuals and private capital, working closely with founders, investors and family offices. We also advise governments, charities, global brands and start-ups of all shapes and sizes. Many of our clients are shaping the future and creating solutions to tackle many of the world's problems. It makes for a fascinating and challenging practice.

Our role is to get to know each individual client, find out where they want to be, and help them to get there – whether they are building a business, looking after their family, involved in a complex dispute or protecting their finances for the future. To meet their unique needs we are exceptionally collaborative, working together across teams and time zones. We are agile, focusing on strategy rather than rigid ideas and traditional hierarchy. It is a truly flexible working culture that puts people first. Join us to be part of a team that is always looking to the future. Where initiative, big ideas and bold moves are always encouraged. Where you can truly be yourself.

What are we looking for

This is an exciting opportunity for a bright individual looking to get into digital marketing, with potential for the right candidate to join the team on a more permanent basis in due course.

The successful candidate will spend up to 5 months working closely with our digital marketing team in London, which itself is part of the wider marketing and business development function. The role is varied and supports the team and the firm with everything from campaign execution, data analysis and research to assisting with social media and content creation. You will gain exposure to how we work with a wide variety of teams. You will work with a range of tools to help us deliver marketing campaigns that align with the firm's strategic objectives. On-the-job training and professional development will be provided to enable you to build your skills and contribute to the business.

You will be joining a friendly, fun and collaborative team, working at a firm that understands the importance of investing significantly in its digital platform, which sits at the heart of everything we do. The firm has a unique culture that many prefer over that of other firms and our client base is truly fascinating. Because of this, and because of the types of law we advise on, we have scope to run more engaging campaigns than elsewhere in the sector and in this role, you will have the opportunity to be involved in future campaigns.
