Dubai Permanent

  • Work in conjunction with global regulators on large scale investigations

About Our Client

Multinational corporation within professional services. Large and well structured legal team in place, made up largely of US/UK/Aus qualified lawyers

Job Description

  • Provide internal guidelines, templates and updates on policies as required

The Successful Applicant

The ideal candidate will be coming from either an international (US or UK) law firm, or inhouse from a regulator. Strong preference would be shown to those coming from well known bodies such as DFSA in Dubai and FCA in London.

We may also consider candidates coming from banks and FS companies, as long as they have had a significant focus on regulatory work in their role (including conducting investigations).

Arabic language skills would be an advantage but are not a requirement.

What's on Offer

Inhouse regulatory roles are a rarity in the current market, but given the constantly changing regulatory landscape it is an exciting area to be working in. This organisation is very much at the forefront and the work is therefore complex, fast paced and exciting.

This hire will have a senior role within the team and will be working alongside professionals who are at the very top of their game. The brand name is also very strong and will be beneficial to have on any CV.
