Walkers is a leading offshore law firm providing legal, corporate and fiduciary services to global corporations, financial institutions, capital market participants and investment fund managers. We advise on the laws of Bermuda, the British Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands, Guernsey, Jersey and Ireland.

At Walkers, our people are our greatest asset. They form our culture, make us stand apart from our competitors and are the reason why our clients choose to do business with us. We have an abundance of talented people in the firm, which makes for a high-performing but also friendly environment. Equality and diversity are key to our global identity and an integral part of our goal to be employer of choice.

We are seeking a Global Head of Risk. This is a new role that will maintain a global remit requiring frequent travel to the firm’s international locations as required. The risk team currently comprises Enterprise Risk Management and Information Security; these areas will be managed by the Head of Risk, with a remit to further develop the firm's operational and regulatory risk framework. The role holder will play a key role in promoting the firm's risk management agenda and leading risk management projects, including the implementation of a globally recognised information security framework.

This is an exciting time to join the firm as the Regulatory Agenda evolves and expands across current and new jurisdictions. Applications are invited from candidates with risk management experience from an international law firm, and those with deep working knowledge of international regulations and industry best practice. This experience coupled with exceptional people management skills that encompasses teams sitting in different geographies is deemed critical to the success of this role.
