Job Description

A rare opportunity has arisen within a financial services institution to become the first Sole Legal Counsel.

Based in their London office, you will report to the Chief Executive and work closely with the senior management team to advise on all legal matters including corporate, commercial, regulatory and employment law. Duties will also include advising on risk and compliance and engaging with external counsel and regulators.

To be considered, you will be an experienced lawyer with broad legal experience gained within financial services either from private practice or in-house. Experience of dealing with employment law and the Financial Ombudsman Service would be advantageous.

As well as a competitive salary and package, you will have the opportunity to shape and define a legal function working directly with the CEO and senior management team, enjoy a good work/life balance and be responsible for a broad scope of work.
