Compliance & Risk Management
Operating throughout a network of offices in the North West, this well-established firm acts for a diverse range of corporate, commercial and private individuals.
Working closely with the management team, you will be responsible on both a strategic and operational level for managing the firm’s Risk and Compliance strategy. This is a new role within the organisation, which will centralise various functions and provide professional support across quality assurance, best practice, and CoLP and CoFA responsibilities.
It requires an individual with gravitas and excellent communication skills, who is able to command confidence, influence change and deal effectively with outside parties, suppliers and regulators. This will be a highly visible role within the organisation, engaging with people at all levels and across solicitors, fee earners, support staff, HR, Finance, IT and Business Development.
You will be responsible for reviewing policies, procedures, training, implementation and audit of best practice and compliance including but not limited to:
- Staff training, guidance and induction programmes,
- Due diligence and conflict checks on new client, referrals and instructions,
- File Opening,
- SRA Codes of Conduct,
- Money Laundering/Bribery Act issues,
- Best Practice, Quality Assurance & Accreditation programmes
- Professional Indemnity & Complaints Management
- Data Management, Protection and GDPR
We would be delighted to hear from professionals with previous experience in this area or qualified solicitors, who have played an active role in COLP type functions and looking to further specialise in this increasingly important and integral part of professional support and practice management.
Applications from those seeking part time are also welcome.
