Head of Risk & Compliance Department

Taunton
£40,000 - £45,000
Private Practice
5 - 10+ years experience

Head of Risk and Compliance Department.
 
This specialist insurance firm are looking for a new head of compliance. 
 
Ideally you should be a qualified solicitor or legal executive, but compliance professionals, who have previously worked in a legal practice will be considered. Those with compliance and risk experience from an Insurer background, should also apply. 
 
In this role you will support the firm as a whole and maintain their legal and regulatory requirements. You will already be very familiar with the SRA, AML, CPR, Anti-bribery, Data Protection & GDPR. 
 
Although working largely independently, you will work closely with the Managing Director on investigating all breaches of regulations and statutes. You will perform regular risk assessments to understand the level of risk within the firm. 
 
You will also handle any client complaints (thankfully there are very few!) but they can be complex and sensitive, and will require you have a professional resilience. 
 
This role could suit a Fee Earner who no longer wants to fee earn - and has extensive risk and compliance experience. Personal Injury and insurance experience would be beneficial, but not essential. 
 
Excellent salary up to £45k + Benefits.
