Current Opportunity (November 2020)
Below is a current opportunity (November 2020). We have pasted the advert that is live on the Law Society Gazette and Devon and Somerset Law Society Website.
We are particularly interested to hear from applicants who have experience from working with compliance in larger/corporate/legal 500 law firms. We are happy to consider applications from lawyers who have gone down the compliance route with their careers as well as non-lawyers who have a good track record with compliance.
This particular opportunity arises following our end of (financial) year planning and appraisal process. These processes are a good opportunity to review the needs of the business for the next. 2020 has seen significant growth in our practice and we have exciting plans for 2021. By creating a new compliance and risk manager role – this will assist us to progress the practice even further over the next few years.
