    Sheffield £45,000 – £60,000

    My client are a new business in the consumer credit market, and they are committed to becoming a thriving, successful and industry-compliant company. For them, this starts by hiring the right people to help them on this journey. As Sole Counsel with a focus on Risk and Compliance, you will need energy and enthusiasm to shape this role and take on the responsibility for building the legal team.

    The ideal candidate will come from either an in-house or PP background, preferably within financial services or have demonstrable knowledge of FCA regulations, consumer or commercial credit management, or debt recovery. There will initially be a strong focus on Compliance, but in the long-term this role will evolve to be a more general Commercial Counsel position.

    Reporting to the Board of Directors, the CFO and the Head of Collections, my client needs a mature, experienced solicitor who can manage senior stakeholders and provide insightful legal advice and support to a very high standard. The client is open on PQE but the successful candidate will have a good track record of having a lot of independence and responsibility, so an NQ solicitor would probably not be suitable. However, we welcome applications from any candidate who can demonstrate the relevant skills and background.

    Based in Sheffield, this exciting role and company are offering some great benefits - including 25 days holiday, a bonus and profit-sharing options.

    If you are looking for the chance to take on a senior level position, with great opportunities for growth and to be part of their success story, then get in touch today and send your CV for consideration!
