  • Experience in dealing with regulators (either in an in-house role or in private practice) in any of the following industries: gambling, telecoms, utilities, transport, media, alcohol, tobacco or others.
  • Experience on working with cross-border issues is advantageous (again, this experience can be either contentious or non-contentious)
  • Interest in gambling law, policy and international perspectives on the industry;
  • Training and post-qualification experience at reputable law firms.
  • A strong and consistent academic record.
  • A strong desire to forge a career as an in-house lawyer and build strong, lasting relationships with internal commercial stakeholders.
