Risk Paralegal

An excellent opportunity has arisen at an international law firm for a Risk Paralegal.

The Risk & Compliance team is integral to the running of the law firm, before any new client is accepted or and new cases can be worked on by the lawyers, the compliance team needs to perform due diligence to check there are no legal or commercial conflicts or any risk of money laundering.

The Risk Paralegal will be responsible for performing due diligence on clients, researching into the structure of the company, who the directors and major shareholders are, seeing if they are being investigated by any regulators in the UK or overseas, and seeing if there is any negative press.

Applicants for this role will have strong academics and some experience working in a law firm, ideally as a paralegal, but potentially experience as a legal assistant, legal administrator or secretary could be transferable. Any experience with file opening, conducting ID checks or running conflicts or AML checks would be advantageous.

It is EJLegal’s policy, as a matter of courtesy to respond to all applications within three working days. However because of the volume of applications, we are sometimes unable to respond to individual candidates. If we have not contacted you within three working days your application has been unsuccessful and your details have not been retained. Please apply for any other position that you may see in the future. EJ Legal is a Recruitment Agency and is advertising this vacancy on behalf of one of its Clients. Thank you.
