The VWV Regulatory Compliance Team are best known for advising education and healthcare providers and charities on a variety of issues, both proactively and on incident management. They're well equipped to guide clients through evolving regulatory challenges, enabling them to be confident in their processes and to demonstrate best practice. Their award-winning educational work for institutions is ranked number 1 nationally in both Chambers and Legal 500 directories.
In today's climate we've seen increased demand for our support so we're looking to the grow the team by recruiting an experienced lawyer at Associate or Senior Associate level.
Could this be your next career move?
You'll get to work with the largest national provider of specialist legal services to education sector clients. You'll assist clients with the implementation, maintenance and review of policies and procedures and contracts, advise on the management of relationships and communications with regulators and inspectorates and help them with complaints and claims.
You'll develop your personal profile within the firm and contribute to knowledge sharing initiatives. You'll take your share of supervising and developing the team, recognising not just your own training needs but that of the team also. You'll contribute to business development opportunities and identify networking to help introduce new business to the firm. And as the team continue to grow, you'll play an active role in recruitment to help bring further talent into the firm.
Why choose us?
With around 450 employees we're a sizeable firm that still continues to grow, known for its friendly and welcoming culture where team work and collaboration is key, watch this short video to see what our people have to say about us.
For safety at this time our people are working remotely, though everyone is looking forward to getting back to the office at least part time, where our lovely culture is clear to see. We work hard but we also have fun and we're missing that social interaction with each other that really embeds our culture. That said, we have video meeting capability so we can still stay in contact as much as possible. This unusual time has proved we can work effectively as a business from home if needs be, so whilst we don't yet know how things will look when we return to our offices, what we do know now, is we can discuss the individual flexible needs for every employee and team without agility barriers.
We offer a competitive salary, holiday allowance that increases after 12 months with the firm, contribute to your pension pot, have an informal dress code which allows you to dress appropriately for your day no matter what day it is, give you private healthcare and life assurance, as well as offering a range of discounts with local businesses and with so many excellent internal training programmes on offer to everyone it's so easy to develop and improve your skills.
We’re passionate about creating an inclusive workplace that promotes and values diversity, we're striving to create an environment where everyone, regardless of background, can reach their full potential.
So who are we hoping will apply?
Whilst it's likely you'll have at least 4years PQE, we have no set in stone post qualification years attached to our job titles as for us it's more about hitting the standards we set for our Associates and Senior Associates.
The ideal would be to receive an application from a lawyer with a regulatory compliance and litigation background, and even better someone with experience of any of the following sectors, education, charities or healthcare. That said, we're openminded as value a diversity of experience, though an interest in education and safeguarding is essential.
From which of our office locations you're based doesn’t matter, what does matter is your ability to identify relevant legal issues applicable to a case and determine an appropriate strategy in the light of these. Also important will be you passion for supervision and performance management which will make you proud to promote the expertise of the team.
