The perks of being an Equifax employee within the Legal & Compliance team?

There are lots of perks of being an Equifax employee – we offer additional leave days as we recognise the importance of taking time out, whether that’s to catch up on some rest, celebrate a birthday, or give back to our community by volunteering.

Our leadership team fosters a culture of ownership, they will lead, coach, mentor and listen. We support one another to feel confident to speak up and hold each other accountable to work with integrity.

Our Legal & Compliance team may be small but that doesn’t mean we don’t make a big impact. We love our job, so we are devoted to finding solutions to drive continuous improvement and provide a balanced ground for our customers and colleagues.

When you peer into our office, you will see it bursting with caring, supportive people that have formed genuine friendships. Our leaders support us, and we put trust in each other to get the job done knowing that we are part of a larger jigsaw, dedicated to the same purpose.
