My client is one of the leading private client firms in London and it also has a thriving property practice. They are looking for their first risk and compliance specialist to join the team. A big focus will be on anti-money laundering, risk assessments, education and training. They have systems and processes in place, but these of course can be improved upon. They need someone who has a strong knowledge of regulation and understands the needs of a private client and property firm, rather than a large commercial firm. Other areas will include SRA regulations, data protection and professional indemnity.
They are open-minded as to the background of the individual. What is essential is previous legal experience and the ability to build credibility and influence at all levels. You will have demonstrable experience in the above areas and be a proactive individual. You will need to get to really understand and act upon the needs of the firm and work closely and consultatively with the partnership.
