You will be joining the team based in Bahrain in an important role reporting to the GC and working in close coordination with other members of the legal and compliance function, as well as wider parts of the business.

The role is a stimulating mix of corporate work, such as assisting on corporate documents and transactions related to joint ventures, strategic acquisitions, and restructuring matters.

Key responsibilities also include a focus on regulatory and compliance matters in relation to GDPR as well as assisting on the structuring and setting up funds, investment management, advisory and distribution related agreements.
