Key Responsibilities

Your primary focus will be to provide legal advice across a diverse range of internal matters in concert with colleagues in the Group's European offices. More specifically you will: provide legal input into all aspects of the affairs of the Group locally and within Europe; advise the compliance team in relation to the application of legal and regulatory obligations; assume responsibility for the maintenance and development of the Group's regulatory policies and procedures; support the legal team in new business initiatives; provide legal support on the more complex aspects of client affairs; and develop relationships with external law firms, liaising with such firms in the provision of legal advice.
