Paralegals offered $100k to spend six months in paradise

A Chicago-based tax boutique is offering English law students the unique opportunity to join its brand new Bermuda office.

Packet April Yeovil & Earl (PAYE) will be paying two candidates a whopping $100,000 tax-free salary for a six-month paralegalling contract starting in August. The move is part of PAYE’s drive to lure UK clients to the off-shore tax haven as businesses try to battle the Inland Revenue’s endless tax rises.

The innovative scheme will offer the paralegals a full expenses paid experience covering food, transport and accommodation costs on top of the salary.

Managing partner Juan Bermudez said: “We’re delighted to offer this fantastic adventure and hope students embrace this opportunity with open arms,”

“If you want great money, great food and never a dull day get your applications in as soon as possible as there is bound to be fierce competition for the two positions.”

Bermudez declined to comment on rumours that the generous salary was being offered because the paralegals are likely to be tied to a photocopier and not get much opportunity to explore the island paradise.

If the scheme is successful, PAYE will continue to offer this placement each year, and each person will have the possibility of being offered a permanent position at the law firm. 

To apply for the scheme candidates will need to make a 10-minute video blog looking at the differences between tax avoidance and tax evasion and explaning what qualities they would bring to the role.

JUST IN CASE YOU DID NOT SPOT IT ALREADY – YOU HAVE BEEN APRIL FOOLED.
