In-house Lawyer - Commercial & Regulatory - Leeds

Well known brand based in Leeds city centre are seeking a Commercial or Regulatory Lawyer to join the team.

The team skill set comprises a range of skills from general commercial work, contracts, technology, data protection privacy and a range of other regulatory matters.

This is a role which would suit someone with general commercial contracts and/or banking and financial services experience from a commercial law firm or with experience as an in-house lawyer.

As with most in-house roles, most candidates are likely to be faced with a learning curve in one or more areas, since this role will encompass a range of issues on a day to day basis. Therefore, the role will suit someone who is bright, commercial and adaptable.

Of particular interest will be candidates who can demonstrate prior experience, or at least some knowledge and appreciation of the principles which underpin, the regulatory handbooks maintained by the FSA / FCA. Any directly relevant experience you have of the conduct of insurance or mortgage business, banking or building society work (ICOB, MCOB, BCOB or BSOG), would be of special interest

In the latter case, where your skills are already diverse and relevant to the sector, there is scope for personal advancement including taking some responsibility for the supervision of trainees and non-legally qualified support staff.

Florit Brooke advertisements use PQE levels purely as a guide to the level of experience required for the role and this does not prohibit applications from candidates who are able to demonstrate the necessary skills and experience. We aim to respond to enquiries as soon as possible but if we have not contacted you within 5 days then unfortunately on this occasion your application has not quite met the requirements of our client closely enough.
