Head of legal
My client is a global financial services business, based in the city. They are looking to hire a head of legal, to support the board and the business on a range of legal work. The role would suit a lawyer who has experience of derivatives transactions, including futures & options, commodities and FX. Knowledge of the regulations surrounding derivatives will benefit your application. This is a managerial role, that will have two direct reports, with the opportunity to further grow the team going forward.
The role would suit a 5+ PQE lawyer, who trained at a top law firm. In-house experience is essential, whether that is gained during a secondment or an in-house role. The role requires a lawyer who is able to operate independently, covering a wide range or work. The role is very business focused, working closely with the board so requires a lawyer who is able to engage effectively with senior stakeholders.
This is an excellent opportunity, for a talented lawyer to take on a senior, board level role.
