Fancy working in the beautiful, historic city of York? Are you worried that you wouldn't have the same quality of work and environment you might find in Leeds? Well, this role at a leading regional law firm combines both!

Our client is a successful, long-standing practice and is dedicated to further growth by building on the strong base they have already created, whilst also preserving the reputation they have for delivering first-class legal advice to their clients. The highly-regarded firm are now looking to recruit a risk and compliance specialist to join the successful team in York.

The role is varied and diverse and will involve providing advice on a full-spectrum of legal compliance matters, including to do with the SRA, anti-money laundering, data protection, information security and more. You will also assist, where appropriate, with the complaints handling and claims management process.

You will also assist in devising and delivering training programmes in relation to risk and compliance and will lead risk management and continuous improvement initiatives, to ensure the firm remains fully compliant with regulatory obligations and prepared for emerging risks.

This firm combines traditional values and beliefs with a modern and dynamic outlook and the IT systems and support in place reflects the quality that is normally expected from a bigger firm. Furthermore, the team has a great atmosphere and supportive working environment, making it the perfect opportunity for like-minded individuals who value that team spirit.

The firm takes a genuine interest in its employees and believes in continual investment and training, meaning you will always be supported in your career development and progression. The firm appreciates that everyone is different and will tailor development to your needs, no matter what level.

Our client is ideally looking for a qualified solicitor who has experience in compliance, however they will consider people with broad-ranging law firm risk and compliance experience as above, or someone who has had more narrow legal risk and compliance experience and would like to broaden their knowledge. It is essential that the successful candidate has a legal risk and compliance background.

So if you are looking to take that next step and establish your career in a top regional firm, why not apply today?
