Are you looking to join a new kind of bank?

Virgin Money is on a quest to build a better bank; our aim is to make everyone better off.   As part of the Virgin Money Legal team, you’ll have the opportunity to play a key role in achieving this ambition. 

Our Treasury Legal team keep us on the right track, supporting us on this journey and advising us on the decisions we take along the way.  They provide guidance and expertise on the full range of transactions undertaken by Treasury at Virgin Money at a time when Virgin Money is looking to diversify its funding platform.  Reporting into the Head of Treasury Legal, you will provide support on a broad range of wholesale debt transactions, derivatives and other general treasury documentation. You will also need to help keep Virgin Money on top of legal and regulatory developments that impact Treasury.

We’re looking for someone with the ability to think creatively to help us “do things differently” as a Legal team. You should have a keen interest in treasury transactions and be looking to build your experience in finance law and regulation. We are looking for candidates with a pragmatic approach to problem solving whilst understanding the importance of balancing commercial thinking with legal, regulatory and contractual compliance. You will need to have good communication and team skills and be able to manage a busy workload.

We depend on our Legal team to help us make the right decisions so although prior capital markets/structured finance experience is not essential, we need someone with finance or corporate transactional experience in a quality law firm.  You will be a fully qualified solicitor with around 0 to 2 year’s post qualification experience.

Take your next step with us - apply now.

This role is available from the end of February. Salary depending on experience plus a great range of benefits.

The role will be based in Newcastle, Edinburgh or London, with travel between our offices occasionally required.
