The company employs over 80,000 people across multiple jurisdictions across the EMEA, APAC and Americas. With over 30 million customers globally, this company is a true market leader. While the company is not listed, if it did it would be of a FTSE 100 profile.

Your new role
Reporting to the Legal Manager within an international business unit, this is a Legal Advisor position focused on providing excellent levels of corporate governance expertise to the business unit. This unit has established itself over the last year, and creates an excellent opportunity for an ambitious lawyer to add real value to a function that is still developing.

You will also perform governance duties that have company secretarial aspects.

What you'll need to succeed
As a junior lawyer with at least 1 years' post-qualification experience, you will be looking to learn as much as possible to develop as a legal advisor to the global business. You will have experience as a corporate orientated lawyer either in private practice or in an in-house financial services or corporate setting. You will have experience supporting on corporate transactions, and the willingness to take on what will be an advisory role with a great breadth of work. You will have had exposure to the corporate governance matters typically encountered by a large business, and you will be able to manage stakeholders at all levels. You will not be fazed by a fluid environment and you will be a team player with strong commercial acumen.

What you'll get in return
You will work in a global role, for a household brand name in the insurance and well-being sector, a company that will afford you exceptional career development opportunities internally. You will be rewarded with an excellent salary and leading benefits package, working in an exciting atmosphere within a business unit that has recently established itself and will come with positive challenges that should enthuse a governance orientated lawyer.
