  • Capturing and leveraging competition learnings from across the Group, horizon-scanning of regulatory developments and external risks, providing updates to the Group and briefing senior management.
  • Leading and managing external partnerships with law firms and economists, including effective and efficient management of budget and resources.

To be considered you will need the following:

  • Qualified Solicitor ~5 years' PQE in a law firm with prior in-house experience, with significant experience in Competition law
