You'll also be involved in advising on regulatory matters, some litigation, occasional input on employment law matters, and delivering training to employees. The range of commercial work on offer is genuinely interesting and varied, and you'll regularly encounter issues that will be new to you.

To be a success in this role, you'll need to be an experienced 'commercial' lawyer have gained experience from a good law firm or in house legal department, and most likely from a commercial, technology, corporate, projects or property background, but the specific skillset is less important that your positive 'can do' attitude and adaptability.

In return our client offers a good salary (up to £55k dependant on experience) and benefits package, and the possibility of flexible working. The role is initially offered as 12 month fixed term contract, but there is strong possibility that this will be made permanent.

The role is based within easy commute from Newcastle, Durham, Teesside, York and North Yorkshire.
