The corporate banking arm of a large and diverse, well-established organisation is currently seeking a general banking lawyer ideally with some experience in the receivables finance space.  Working on a combination of transactional and regulatory issues, the position involves structured receivables, consumer credit leases and distribution finance and will include working on conditional sale and hire purchase agreements, leasing and maintenance contracts and broker issues.  In broad terms, finance leasing, asset based lending, and general banking.  A large part of the role will be managing legal risk, identifying reputational risk issues to escalate to the relevant business areas and re-addressing policies.

This is a contract hire due to an internal secondment but it is fully expected that there could be a permanent position available at the end of the 12 months. The office is based in the City of London. To be considered you should be between 2 and 8 years qualified.   You should have experience in general banking, banking products, regulatory law and documentation and policy.  Direct experience of wholesale banking, receivables and asset based lending and regulatory issues such as consumer credit and BCOBS would be beneficial.  A general banking background with a regulatory bias would be appropriate and an in-house or practice background will be considered, as long as top tier.  The organisation can offer excellent training.
