Purpose of the role:

A role providing full-time dedicated corporate, regulatory, privacy and governance advice to State Street's EMEA businesses and control functions, with a particular focus on the UK.

Please note: This role is only open to experienced lawyers.
The ideal candidate will position themselves as a "go to" adviser by demonstrating reliable judgment, comfort with unfamiliar topics, and a reputation for practical, risk-appropriate, and technically sharp legal advice.

Role specifics
Prior financial services regulatory experience is desirable, but more important is a curious mindset, excellent legal skills, and an ability to quickly pick up new topics. The role will cover the following areas:
  • privacy, confidentiality and data security, including the GDPR;
  • prudential and conduct related regulatory issues and potential breaches; in particular, the UK Senior Managers and Certification Regime;
  • the UK Prudential Regulation Authority's and Financial Conduct Authority's rules and guidance (including, in particular, the FCA's rules and guidance in relation to CASS);
  • regulatory issues, reforms, supervisory reviews and regulatory themes impacting State Street's business;
  • regulatory aspects of corporate re-organisation and expansion projects and cross functional or jurisdictional corporate projects;
  • anti-money laundering and sanctions issues;
  • governance and corporate secretarial related issues arising from or impacting State Street's legal entity boards and governance committees.

The role will have a particular focus on the UK but may involve matters arising across EMEA or globally. Advice will often be given in a multi-jurisdictional context and therefore the ideal candidate will be able to understand jurisdictional differences and nuances and tailor their advice accordingly.

General requirements
  • Display a culture of individual ownership of tasks to embed a clear individual sense of accountability in performing the role
  • Ensure that the highest level of the Code of Conduct is displayed in your behaviour
  • Support the 'Risk Excellence' culture within the business
  • Adhere to all State Street policies and comply with all escalation procedures determined by your line manager

Level of Education/Qualifications
The successful candidate must be a qualified lawyer. The role would suit someone with approximately 5 years PQE.

Skills and Experience
Relevant financial services experience is highly desirable, but not essential.

Required Competencies
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Ability to work in a self-directed manner with minimal supervision
  • Good research skills and sound logic and reasoning capabilities
  • Good stakeholder management skills
  • Comfortable working with unfamiliar topics and areas of law
