The Role....

The Chief Legal Officer and Group Commercial Director is a newly created function within the Flutter Group with the key objective of protecting the Flutter brand, its customers and shareholders. The function consists of legal, risk, and regulatory compliance activities, including the Group strategy and roadmap for Safer Gambling – a core component of the Group's strategy. The CLO function will influence the strategic direction of the Group's four Divisions (US, Aus, UK/I and International) by setting the risk appetite and establishing the necessary governance, policies and standards to ensure our legal, risk, compliance, regulatory and safe gambling matters are managed in a robust and agile manner.
