VP - Legal Inventory Management 
Whippany, NJ

As a Barclays Vice President - Legal Inventory Management, you will be embedding a new LRR (laws, rules, and regulations) Risk governance and control framework within Barclays’ U.S. Legal function and developing and maintaining an inventory of U.S. LRRs applicable to Barclays. Your team will be accountable for developing and embedding new roles and duties for Barclays lawyers across the globe in relation to LRR Risk.

Barclays is one of the world's largest and most respected financial institutions, with 329 years of success, quality and innovation behind us. We've helped millions of individuals and businesses thrive, creating financial and digital solutions that the world now takes for granted. An important and growing presence in the USA, we offer careers providing endless opportunity.

We are currently in the early stages of implementing a hybrid working environment, which means that many colleagues spend part of their working hours at home and part in the office, depending on the nature of the role they are in. We’re flexible on how this works and it may continue to change and evolve. Depending on your team, typically this means that colleagues spend a minimum of between 20% to 60% of their time in the office, which could be over a week, a month, or a quarter. However, some colleagues may choose to spend more time in the office over a typical period than their role type requires. We also have a flexible working process where, subject to business needs, all colleagues globally can request work patterns to reflect their personal circumstances. Please discuss the detail of the working pattern options for the role with the hiring manager.
