  • Researching and identifying the organisational structures of new clients, their risk profile and their financial beneficiaries
  • Building excellent working relationships with the risk team and other key stakeholders to quickly and professionally manage conflicts and their resolution
  • Maintaining a strong and up to date technical knowledge of key regulations and legislation relating to your portfolio of work

Your work will also incorporate a substantial compliance element, including ongoing monitoring, training and engagement with the risk and sanctions Partners.

What You Will Bring

You will bring to bear impressive attention to detail, client management (internal) and strategic skills to a team that supports successful commercial legal teams. Your professionalism will be reflected in a strong communication style and the ability to adapt to new processes and systems with ease. Those with a keen understanding of legal conflicts of interest and the broader legal industry will have a keen advantage in this application process. A proactive and organised approach to project management is essential.

In Return

You can expect a role that has a major impact on a global business and in improving the ongoing efforts to prevent money laundering and sanctions evasion. You will sit as a part of a global network of compliance and conflicts professionals who tackle international challenges that will test your intellect.
