We're working with an exceptional Legal 500 firm with offices across the UK. They are driven to provide the best legal services. Founded by ex Eversheds and Clifford Chance Lawyers they cover all commercial areas.

Now looking for someone to work closely with the COLP/COFA/MLRO to ensure the firm continue to work in the correct way in line with all SRA and regulatory standards. 

You will stay up to date with changes in law and regulations, developing and implementing an effective compliance program throughout the business. Reviewing firms policies and procedures, conducting internal and external audits, conducting the firm wide risk assessments.

This is a very broad role and a brilliant opportunity for someone to take a step up from a smaller more high street firm, continuing compliance work across the board.

  • Knowledge of file audits, complaints, sra audits, risk assessments and firm wide compliance

What's in it for you?

  • Join a growing Legal 500 firm with an opportunity to progress and grow the function
  • Work closely with the firms Partner & COLP
  • Flexible Hybrid working policy, team generally do 2-3 days in office

I'm interested in speaking with qualified solicitors, with experience in a smaller boutique or high street firm looking to continue their compliance route in a bigger legal 500 firm.
