Director of Risk & Compliance
Our client is a Top 100 firm with its HQ in the City of London. It boasts a strong reputation and a varied client base of corporates, entrepreneurs and HNWIs offering straight forward advice to all. The culture is friendly, inclusive and has a growth mindset seeking to develop its own employees and think outside the box for clients.
We have been instructed by the firm to identify a new Director for the risk and compliance team. Heading up a team of around 7 individuals and working closely with the Board and Partners you will have responsibility for steering the firm through the usual issues of AML, sanctions, financial crimes, conflicts, SRA regulation and insurance. The role will also cover data protection and general commercial issues. It is a varied and wide-ranging role providing interesting issues and challenges.
We are seeking an individual with risk and compliance experience, ideally in a law firm or similar professional services setting, who is ready to take up the Head of position. We are not wedded to the successful person being a qualified lawyer, although it would be advantageous if you are. Instead, we are focusing on identifying a personable and confident advisor who is comfortable engaging at all levels. You must display leadership qualities and be able to influence people and win the trust of your peers so they will embrace compliance into their daily lives.
If you are seeking a fresh challenge in a firm that has a down-to-earth approach and sensible approach to work/life balance this could be the role for you. Please get in touch to find out more.
