Do you have transactional or regulatory client facing / deal driven skills, whilst are keen to use them in an advisory focused role? Due to the positively increasing workload of commercial colleagues, when combined with the ever-developing landscape of the financial services industry, 2 commercial banking legal support teams have created 2 new legal advisory roles in Edinburgh. A key focus of both permanent roles will be to define, deliver, and then continually improve the legal strategy which underpins the deal driven activities of client facing, commercial colleagues. This is, therefore, specifically a project specific and advisory function within the organisation. On a regular basis, you will be working with senior colleagues across the business and putting in place the fundamental legal processes which will allow them to do business confidently; shall be managing legal risk for both colleagues and clients of the financial institution; and shall be regularly interacting with external advisors on specific regulatory changes which will affect the activities of the commercial unit, before making the appropriate changes to internal processes. Due to the varied, project led, and strategic nature of this role, you - a qualified and experienced Banking & Finance / Corporate Finance / Regulatory Solicitor with solid transactional banking/lending experience - will have to have a proven ability of building strong commercial relationships with senior colleagues; robust drafting and research skills; and a deep interest/knowledge in the ever changing landscape which is affecting the financial services industry. These are new, interesting, and varied roles in a fascinating organisation. As such, please do apply at the soonest moment to ensure you can include yourself in the process.
