Legal Counsel: first time move in-house?

Excellent opportunity for a talented lawyer looking to move in-house with a large and complex financial services organisation.

The business has a fantastic culture and is very client centric as well as being very focused on their own people's development and well-being.

This role is diverse but the focus is very much commercial - in particular a strong focus on complex contractual matters across the business with products, external suppliers, intermediaries, and of course clients. In addition, you will also be exposed to regulatory, compliance, and other risk related matters.

The in-house team here is well resourced with excellent lawyers and is genuinely part of the wider business. The successful candidate will not only be a strong technical lawyer but needs to be a natural at engaging with non-legal stakeholders.

Our client is open to a range of backgrounds but the candidate ideally needs strong commercial, corporate, and/or ICT experience. You could be looking to move into your first in-house role from private practice or looking to lock in a fresh challenged ready for January 2020 start.

Ideally, you will have impressive experience with around 3 to 5 years PQE.
