Your new role
You will be assisting the Head of Legal, as well as assisting the wider business with a varied range of projects and tasks that require both legal support and review.

You will have previous experience in a similar position and will have experience within the Financial Services industry.

The role requires good influencing skills, commercial judgement and a pro-active approach and involves interaction with both junior and senior level executives.
