The firm has confirmed it is to recruit for non-legal roles at its Support Services Centre in the city for a new major IT project being led by Belfast teams.
The project will deliver a suite of leading edge tools to Allen & Overy’s 44 offices worldwide and see more than 30 people join the company on 12 month contracts with opportunities to travel within the firm’s international network.
The roles span a range of disciplines including human resources, information technology, finance, marketing, research, library and business support services, with a recruitment evening to take place on Thursday, November 16 at the organisation’s Donegall Quay office from 5.30pm to 7pm.
Head of human resources at Allen & Overy, Ciaran McCallion said the Belfast office plays a “critical role” in the business and is looking forward to recruiting more great talent.
“We now employ over 500 people here, which makes Belfast our second largest office by headcount. We’re continuing to excel and want to attract and develop outstanding people in every area of the business.”
“If you set yourself the highest standards, are keen to learn and advance, and are interested in becoming part of a global team, we want to hear from you. At our recruitment evening, you’ll have a chance to find out more about the type of roles we offer and hear first about opportunities within an international firm that values great talent.”
“Legal service is a knowledge-led business and technology is pivotal to everything we do. Across our firm, we seek to continually improve and enhance our systems and the way we do things. Belfast is critical to that process and we’re leading a significant and exciting upgrade that will support our people to deliver excellence and innovation,” he added.
