We have a great, new opportunity for a lawyer interested in a role with flexibility, minimal pressure and many opportunities to learn. Our client is a leading national law firm looking for a qualified lawyer with prior experience in risk & compliance or within a private practice to join their lovely and supportive team.

  • Liaise with the team, partners and the MLRO

  • Advise on a multitude of legal, regulatory, risk and compliance related queries (AML, Data Protection, Conflicts of Interest, Professional Conduct)
  • Act as an escalation point for AML and conflicts issues
  • Draft reports to senior management
  • Contribute to team projects requiring risk and compliance input
  • Develop the file audit programme, evaluate audit outcomes and work on corrective actions
