Senior in-house role for a FS regulatory lawyer

This is a rare opportunity for a senior lawyer with strong EU payments/banking regulatory experience to join the global legal leadership team of an international payments company in Ireland.

The role has European scope and covers all services and products in the company. While there is a legal team in Ireland, this is a one of a kind position in the country in relation to its scope and responsibilities.

The organisation offers remote work option within Ireland, as well as a strong compensation package.

ROLE

The successful candidate will take on a very hands-on role that focuses on advising business partners on complex issues related to EU payments/banking regulations such as PSD2, AML, MiFID and CRD. The work involves dealing with regulators across Europe and instructing outside counsel where necessary.

PROFILE REQUIREMENTS

  • Qualified Lawyer in a EU jurisdiction (or UK) with 8+ years' relevant experience gained both in private practice and in-house;
  • Superb experience advising on AML and payments regulations (such as PSD2);
  • Experience interacting with the Central Bank of Ireland is extremely desirable;
  • Experience advising on MiFID and CRD is an advantage;
  • Very confident and articulate individual, with experience dealing at a strategic level with executives and regulators.
