Risk & Compliance Officer

£35,000 to £45,000
19-08-2021 10:21 AM
We are working with a Legal 500 firm who are seeking a Risk & Compliance Officer to join their team. This role will work incredibly closely with the Compliance Manager in maintaining the firm’s Risk Management policies and procedures.

This is not your standard Compliance role where you will only be dealing with AML & Conflicts checks. This role is incredibly broad and varied giving you the opportunity to get stuck into all elements of Risk & Compliance.

This role is suited to someone who has experience working in a compliance team at a junior level who is ready to take the next step in their career. You would be working in a small team alongside the Compliance Manager and with the support of a Compliance Administrator.

Some of the duties and responsibilities will include:

Dealing with professional indemnity claims and determining whether there is a reportable incident
Liaising with the firm’s professional indemnity insurer
Maintaining relationships with panel solicitors and acting as the main point of contact
Assisting with complaints management
Carrying out Conflicts/AML/CDD checks
Maintaining and updating central risk registers
Getting involved with adhoc projects with the Business Support Group
Assisting with the firm’s file review processes
Assisting with the administration and preparation for the LEXCEL accreditation audit
Practising Certificate renewals
Assisting with the firm’s Risk Management and compliance training
Keeping up to date with legal and regulatory changes

This list is not exhaustive of all of the duties of this position. This firm are genuinely excited to help develop and train you to become the best Risk & Compliance professional you can be.

If you have prior experience working in a Risk & Compliance team and you are ready for a step up in responsibility, this is the perfect next job for you!

This is not a remote working role, the firm will be operating a hybrid WFH model.
