My client is a market leading buy-side firm that is looking for somebody with a solid legal background within a buy-side firm. If you have compliance experience within a buy-side firm on top of this then it is a huge bonus.

Elliott James Consulting have an exciting opportunity for a Legal and Compliance Assistant to join a market leading Asset Management company in their Legal and Compliance team in London.

Reporting to the Chief Legal and Compliance Officer, you will be instrumental in helping to ensure the

efficient and timely meeting of deadlines, working closely with different teams, in particular the Sales and Client

Services teams, and individuals within the group to ensure that legal and regulatory obligations are adhered to.

The role will include, for example, reviewing bespoke marketing material to ensure it is compliant for the entity to which it will be delivered, drafting contracts with third party marketers, assisting in updating the legal documentation relating to the company products and assisting in ensuring that the products remain compliant with local regulation in the jurisdictions in which they are registered for sale.

Whilst previous compliance experience within an investment management entity is preferred, it is not essential, as

the Chief Legal and Compliance Officer can provide training in this area. Legal experience, either in an investment

management company or in private practice, is, however, required, in order to be able to "hit the ground running".

Role Mission

To assist the Chief Legal and Compliance Officer in ensuring the Group is aware of, and complies with, all legal and

regulatory obligations to which it is subject.
