Job Description

Who we're looking for

You'll have practical and theoretical knowledge of the areas of law covered by the team, you’ll be flexible, and be able to take every challenge in their stride - responding quickly and acting proactively.

Previous experience of working and advising in-house or in private practice would be beneficial but not essential. As a minimum you’ll have:

• Law degree, ILEX or equivalent training
• Thorough knowledge of legal research tools and sources
• High level of computer literacy
• Proven ability to effectively manage a busy workload and cope under pressure
• Excellent communication and interpersonal skills within a professional manner
• Enthusiastic
• Team Player
• High levels of initiative
• Willingness to learn

What you'll be doing

In this key role, you’ll provide crucial support to the lawyers within our Retail Legal Team, who advise our product teams, including Current Account, Mortgages, Savings, Credit Card and Personal Loans as well as our colleagues in Property, Digital, Payments and more. You’ll also support our other legal teams on occasion.

That means taking on a wide range of ad-hoc legal and administrative duties on a wide range of subjects, from researching relevant legislation, case law and articles and making solid recommendations based on your findings, to providing advisors with the information they require in order to deliver accurate legal advice across the group. It also means assisting with the drafting of legal documents, such as terms and conditions and other customer facing literature as well as advising on processes. You’ll also assist the team on keeping an eye on what’s on the horizon by monitoring any changes in legislation, regulation and the wider market. It’s a vital role that calls for plenty of legal knowledge; a role that’s as rewarding as it is challenging.
