Hays Legal is instructed by this organisation seeking to appoint a senior litigator/in-house compliance and regulatory lawyer in this key role, reporting to the General Counsel.

Ideal candidates will be experienced litigators currently working in a national or international law firm (commercial litigation/financial litigation/regulatory) and wanting to move in-house, or qualified lawyers already in a compliance role in a law firm or corporate. Experience of AML and financial crime would be advantageous but is not essential.

Joining a highly regarded in-house team, the successful candidate will be a trusted advisor, providing expertise and solutions on regulatory, compliance, professional conduct issues and occasionally on claims/litigation. The role requires a proactive individual who can run projects and liaise with senior stakeholders (including senior management and committees) on a regular basis.

Day to day responsibilities include advising on legal, regulatory and ethical standards, advising on claims & complaints, investigating potential conduct issues, designing and implementing compliance systems and procedures, leading risk management projects on a global basis, developing and rolling out policies, providing training and supervising more junior colleagues.

This is an excellent opportunity for a mid-level (5+) to senior lawyer seeking a wide-ranging and stimulating role within a fast-moving and collegiate environment. Lawyers working 4 or 5 days a week are equally of interest. Hybrid working - applications are welcome from lawyers outside of Yorkshire (North West, North East and Midlands).

On offer is a very attractive remuneration package offering a generous basic and bonus and additional benefits. Only those with UK experience will be considered.

To learn more about this role, please send your CV to Adele Callaghan or contact me for a return call to discuss the role.
