Financial services is a complex industry. We have big responsibilities. The work we do impacts people’s lives. It changes them for the better. But we also encounter plenty of risk. So it’s really important that we have a brilliant legal team to keep us on the straight and narrow. That there are no hidden surprises in our small print.
But legal here is about more than that. It’s also about helping us to grow. To innovate. To do more for our customers and more for our teams. You could find yourself handling anything from mergers and acquisitions, sustainability and employee share schemes through to supporting our Board or enabling our ongoing digital transformation. And wherever you join us, you’ll be empowered to put your stamp on things.
When the unexpected happens, we step in to help. Our legal teams make sure we can do exactly that. They help to minimise the chances of us coming up against the unexpected as a company too. A career here means advising on legal, commercial and ethical issues. It’s all about doing the right thing.
So expect to have a big say. Plus great exposure to our most senior leaders. We’ll make sure you have ongoing training so you can keep up with the latest legislation and regulations. And there’ll be plenty of scope to move around the team – and to step up to the next level.
Our Legal function is pretty diverse. It’s made up of Legal, Company Secretarial, Public Policy, Corporate Responsibility, Staff Pensions and Art & Archive teams.
We’re home to trainee and qualified solicitors, chartered company secretaries, legal advisors, public policy experts and many others. For every role, we look for sharp minds and the right values. You should be commercially-minded with great attention to detail and great decision-making skills. You won’t be afraid to speak your mind – especially whenever there’s an opportunity for us to do more for our customers.
If you think you could be a good fit for us (and vice versa), join our talent community. As a member you will receive insights that will give you a fuller picture of what it’s like to work here and you’ll be first to know about any new roles.
