We have been exclusively retained by a highly innovative and pioneering specialty healthcare company seeking to appoint a General Counsel and Chief Compliance Officer. This is a fantastic opportunity for an exceptional US/UK/EU qualified lawyer to lead, develop and influence a sizeable team of best-in-class legal and compliance professionals, to act as a key business advisor to the CEO, Board of Directors and Executive Leadership Team on a broad scope of matters (legal, compliance, regulatory, risk management). As a member of the Executive Team, you will bring impact and valuable contribution and provide strategic advice at both an enterprise and functional level. A large portion of our client’s business comes from the US market so a significant understanding of the US market and how to make strategic decisions there is imperative.

Our client requires a proactive, flexible and pragmatic approach with a global mindset. Candidates must have significant leadership experience and a track record of navigating a complex matrix structure with well-developed shareholder management skills. The successful candidate will have a great deal of commercial acumen and entrepreneurial flair and will be able to engender trust and credibility at all levels of the group. Our client is proud of their caring and close-knit culture and this position would be suited to an experienced leader from the healthcare or pharmaceuticals sector.  

The position may be based in the UK or US with frequent travel to the UK if not already based locally.
