Landmark Information Group, part of the Daily Mail & General Trust (DMGT), is the UK's leading provider of land and property search information, including digital mapping, environmental risk reports for property professionals and sophisticated property management tools for surveyors, risk and fraud managers and the broader financial markets. It also has operations in Germany in the form of On-Geo, and interests in Holland. We develop both products and services/solutions for our customers, ranging from environmental consultants, surveyors and some of the UK's largest banks & lending institutions (to name just a selection) who all have a common interest - land and property information.
We have an exciting opportunity for a proactive and dedicated Compliance Officer. You will be required in a legal role consisting of drafting, reviewing, approving and distributing contractual documentation as required by Landmark Information and its group companies; as well as providing advice and guidance to ensure appropriate implementation of legal and regulatory requirements.
The role requires interaction with all departments and employees, including external legal counsel, external customers and suppliers. You will work with the Senior Compliance officer in the creation of all contractual documentation including customer and supplier contracts, confidentiality agreements, as well as liaising directly customer and suppliers to agree terms. In addition you will have some responsibility for other aspects of compliance including business practice, policies and procedures.
To be considered for this opportunity it is essential that you are competent in applying law, drafting agreements and being able to advise on internal customers based on relevant laws and regulations. You will need to have previous experience in a similar role. Being qualified as a solicitor, legal advisor, paralegal or similar is highly desirable, though not essential. It is highly desirable for the successful applicant to hold a relevant qualification in a law or technical related subject, ideally at degree level or above.
You will need to be proficient in MS office with the capability to construct prose professionally and comprehensively. Excellent communication skills are required along with the willingness to go the extra mile to deliver excellence and good customer service.
If you believe you have the skills, knowledge and experience for this role, and want to be part of an exciting organisation that transforms the land and property industries, we would like to hear from you
