We are looking for a lawyer to join our highly motivated and committed expanding legal team. Reporting to our Deputy Head of Legal, you will provide legal advice to the Party and Elections Finance Directorate of the Commission.

We offer a varied and high quality workload and the role will involve advisory and regulatory work ranging from enforcement, policy, to advising on draft legislation where you will have the opportunity to help turn policy into law. The work is challenging and often requires advising on novel or untested areas of law under the pressure of time. The role may involve advising on electoral administration law, data protection and freedom of information law, as well as general corporate governance.
