Compliance and Regulatory Specialist - A hugely ambitious company with year on year growth is currently seeking a compliance and regulatory specialist to join their busy team. Reporting to the General Counsel you'll enjoy a high profile and accountable profile, working with management in their business unit to identify, interpret and manage regulatory obligations and responsibilities impacting the business and to help management meet their responsibilities for complying with applicable regulations.

As a member of the integral In-house legal team, you'll expect complete visibility within the business and will work autonomously and commercially. They are looking for a lawyer who excels in an environment where accountability is key, on account of the group demanding your input. It certainly isn't a case of winning hearts and minds, as the business is very much on board, but you'll need to be able to deliver and as such will require confidence and humility, passion and pragmatism in equal measure.

The ideal candidate will have 2 - 4 years exposure in financial services compliance with a general knowledge of the financial services industry and how it operates, although this has been given as a guideline only and the company has flexibility on this. Those candidates with a significant experience of managing a compliance advice team with senior and junior compliance advisers would be especially welcome to apply and therefore and in depth knowledge of the FCA handbook, in particular SYSC, CONC, ICOBS would be fairly essential specifically in relation to Consumer Credit and payment Services.
