Our colleagues depend on us to manage a variety of financial services regulatory matters. We are influential in the development of new products and services as we regularly provide legal advice about the design and implementation process. In our team, you'll have the opportunity to support products across the business including electronic trading systems and data reporting products. On any given day you could be asked to analyse, help implement, or advocate for change to US, UK, EU and international securities and derivatives laws and regulations affecting Bloomberg's businesses, or draft and negotiate agreements with key customers. You will liaise regularly with senior business people, other legal counsel, our Negotiations and Compliance teams, or other support functions.

Diversity and inclusiveness are essential to our success and build an environment where our employees are respected for their diversity and empowered to make an impact. Working in an open plan office space, you'll collaborate closely with colleagues and internal clients in an exciting, dynamic, innovative and high-energy work environment.

  • Provide advice and help ensure regulated businesses comply with their prudential, conduct and commercial obligations
  • Provide legal support for business, operations and marketing and sales forces
  • Help draft and negotiate agreements and regulatory responses
  • Bring a willingness to develop your knowledge of securities and derivatives regulation and related practice areas to complement a highly-functioning legal team with a broad portfolio of regulatory issues facing electronic trading, technology and information services providers.
  • Thrive in collaborating with colleagues to deliver first-class advice and execution to Bloomberg

You’ll need to have:

  • Post-qualification experience as a lawyer (with a focus on non-contentious financial services law)
  • Familiarity with financial services regulation (both prudential and conduct obligations deriving from MiFID / MiFIDII) securities and/or derivatives regulations
  • Strong communication, presentation and negotiation skills and the ability to thrive in an open office environment
  • Demonstrated ability to thrive in a diverse team environment

We'd love to see:

  • Knowledge of regulatory issues relevant to broker-dealers, trading infrastructure (e.g. regulated trading venues, CCPs, trade repositories, data reporting services providers), investment advisers, public and private securities offerings and/or regulated businesses in the financial services sector
