What you'll need to succeed
You must be passionate about commercial law and will have previous experience in a similar position and will ideally have experience within the Financial Services industry.

The role requires good influencing skills, commercial judgement and a pro-active approach and involves interaction with both junior and senior level executives. It is anticipated that the successful candidate will be NQ-2 PQE.
