This position offers a platform for growth, development, and the opportunity to work within a collaborative team dedicated to excellence. The firm is committed to investing in its employees, fostering a supportive atmosphere where positive-minded professionals thrive.

  • Understand the firm’s compliance-related policies, including conflict processes.

  • Assist with lateral hire clearances and external appointment reviews.

  • Liaise with the NY Conflicts team on screening and access request queries.

While a degree or equivalent relevant qualifications are desirable, experience in compliance, legal conflicts management, or risk teams is also valuable. Experience in a law firm and knowledge of SRA Rules and anti-money laundering legislation would be advantageous.

 

The ideal candidate will have strong organisational and communication skills and be an enthusiastic team player with a positive approach. High attention to detail, eagerness to learn, and adaptability to new systems and procedures are crucial.
