If interested, you would focusing on developing new and bespoke applications of credit insurance for existing and new clients. The team currently comprises two professionals and is headed by a former senior lawyer and underwriter with a corporate and structured finance background while the other team member is a former banker with experience in balance sheet optimization.

The role represents a chance for a lawyer to take on a commercial / relationship driven role while still drawing heavily on the technical training and experience they have developed. Ideally the candidate will have:

  • Minimum of 2 to 3 years’ PQE, ideally with experience in structured finance including at least one of the following areas: securitisation, derivatives and/or debt financing and related regulations (such as CRR) where relevant.

  • Experience of working with power point and if possible, excel although failing any experience of working with excel, a willingness and aptitude to develop a basic proficiency with excel and a basic working understanding of some of the quantitative aspects applicable to credit risk modelling (such as probability of default).
  • Ability to present complex, technical matters to clients or individuals without the same professional background in a clear and intuitive manner.
  • Strong interpersonal skills and an ability to work with and network with individuals from a diverse range of professional backgrounds is essential.
  • Entrepreneurial mindset and willingness to develop creative solutions for both clients and underwriters: the application of insurance to structured credit transactions is a developing area with no “market practice” established.
  • Being a pro-active self-starter who is able, when required, to work outside of your comfort zone to develop a working knowledge of a new area of law, regulation or business is critical. 

With an excellent salary and package this role offers a fantastic opportunity to branch out into the Insurance market in a people facing role that allows you to take advantage of your existing legal knowledge. Additionally, with this challenge comes great leadership to coach you through the transition.
