Successful candidates will be providing advice and support to clients on a wide range of regulatory compliance matters. This may include, but is not limited to:

  • conducting regulatory reviews

  • drafting compliance policies and procedures
  • responding to ad-hoc and routine regulatory queries
  • responding to queries, managing client expectations and delegating work, where necessary
  • reviewing the work of colleagues and providing constructive feedback

You will also have responsibility for building the pipeline by generating new leads and leveraging existing relationships to maximise opportunities for up/cross-selling. Therefore, prior experience in consulting or business development is essential.

Given the technical nature of the work we do, exceptional written and oral communication skills, and high attention-to-detail are paramount.
