Professional support lawyer – Tax – maternity cover contract – 5 days a week


Our LexisPSL team is looking for a tax lawyer, to join its well-established team whose primary function is drafting and maintaining legal practical guidance, know-how materials, precedents news and industry guidance for the Tax legal sector. The successful candidate will be a qualified lawyer with significant practical experience dealing with tax work in the commercial sphere. 


Who we are:

LexisNexis, a division of the global company RELX Group (FTSE 50), is a leader in professional publishing and a pioneering solutions provider. We are changing the way the world shares information through a unique combination of authoritative content, powerful on-line research and advanced productivity tools. We have moved beyond supplying text information to delivering vibrant solutions which transform organisations.


What is LexisPSL:

LexisPSL is an online product that provides all the information lawyers need to practice effectively. It helps busy practitioners conduct legal research, keep up with what's happening in their practice area or track down a precedent with comprehensive drafting notes.
