Your legal career with us
I am Sonya Branch, Executive Director of the Bank of England’s Legal Directorate and General Counsel.
Only a few legal teams can truly say the work they do is unique and cutting edge. Fewer still have a hand in writing the laws they uphold. And only a handful wake up quite so often to hear about their work in the morning’s news.
This – together with the commitment of our lawyers, paralegals and dedicated support staff - is what makes our Legal Directorate the In-House Legal Team of the Year 2022!
I have worked in many interesting places during my career, but I can definitely say the Bank of England is the most diverse, fast-paced and exciting.
The work we do here is frequently challenging and sometimes demanding, but it is always rewarding. We work hard to support each other.
Members of our team come from many different legal and cultural backgrounds. We go out of our way to celebrate our differences and listen to each other, so that everyone’s voice is heard.
