Due to an impending departure, there is now a need for an In-house Legal Counsel to join the team in Greater Manchester. This is a standalone role reporting to the CFO. The post-holder will be the first point of contact for all legal advice which could include: day-to-day business transactions; negotiations with banks and other financial services companies; acquisition work; legal contract reviews and drafting; asset purchase; due diligence; tender reviews; employment law advice; compliance and risk matters and company secretarial duties. You will also maintain the relationship with our clients external legal providers and you will act as the interface between those providers and the business leaders.

This role has a lot of responsibility and autonomy however you will be heavily supported by internal colleagues and external legal advisors. You are not there to do everything and your main role is that of primary legal advisor to the business. Complex or specialist work is supported by external lawyers.

For this role our client seeks to recruit a circa 5 PQE Solicitor (although there is some flexibility) who can manage the non-contentious legal function, and assist on all facets of the business. FCA and Consumer Credit Act experience is advantageous but not necessarily essential.
