Job Description

A unique opportunity has arisen to lead the creation of a legal team in a large international bank. Being the first hire, you will report directly into the Chief Operations Officer, working closely with all of the C-suit, and be tasked with recruiting legal personnel as you see fit to fulfil the necessary obligations.

A fantastic, comprehensive compensation package is on offer for the successful candidate, including 35% bonus, as well as a genuine work/life balance - where a normal day lasts 9-5 and the office is locked at 7.

The primary role will be to advise on commercial and regulatory issues, while instructing any external counsel necessary in the first instance. The work your team will cover includes FX, trade, commodities and derivatives.

To be considered, you should have a very strong, broad, commercial banking background with experience working internationally and leading a team.
