REGULATORY/DISPUTE RESOLUTION BARRISTER/SOLICITOR:
The successful candidate will be a qualified Barrister or Solicitor with at least 3 years PQE and some solid public law and regulatory enforcement experience. Ideally, you’ll have worked for another regulatory or disciplinary body and have first-hand experience of regulatory case work. Experience of dispute resolution and the operation of EU law would be desirable but is not a requirement. You’ll also have a good range of legal skills including research, drafting, negotiations and some litigation experience. Your written, listening and speaking communication skills will be first rate, and you’ll have excellent attention to detail too. The successful candidate will be a self-starter who takes a proactive approach to problem solving and is quick to learn new areas of law. The role is varied and broad and you’ll also have an opportunity to be involved in the development, implementation or review of current policy documents and published procedures, including the companies Code of Practice, Supporting Procedures and Guidance. On occasion, there may be a requirement to draft, review or negotiate contracts, however support and training will be provided if required. You may also be required to perform the duties of a FOIA officer for the organisation, for which training and support will also be provided as required.

THE CULTURE:
The organisation has worked hard to create a friendly and collaborative office culture, underpinned by their values. During the pandemic they have further invested in their employee wellbeing initiatives and benefits to ensure the teams are well supported. Their Wellbeing and Social Committees have been fantastic at organising a wide range of virtual events to help everyone stay connected. There is a supportive management ethos with a strong emphasis on personal development. This means there’s plenty of opportunities to learn from colleagues, job shadow, knowledge share, mentor and take part in project work.
