Full Time
This is a great opportunity to bring your proven legal expertise to play an active part within a leading, global company. Where you'll receive all the support you need to excel and develop your career.

What's the role?

As Legal Counsel, we'll be looking to you to share your expertise and experience on all areas of trade compliance to Shell companies on a wide range of international trade related issues, from export control and economic sanctions.

Working both independently, yet as an integral part of a virtual Trade Compliance team, you'll thrive on collaborative relationships, with a range of stakeholders. Quickly identifying where support and guidance is needed, and inspiring teams with ways to work positively and effectively.

Much will depend on your ability to apply complex regulatory requirements to a variety of business situations, whilst skilfully providing practical and fully compliant solutions.

More specifically, that will mean managing training and awareness briefings to senior leaders; investigating and preparing regulatory disclosures; and working within your team to maintain the Shell Trade Compliance programme.
