My client is an established North East business with a diverse portfolio of interests, and an interesting range of complex and international legal matters that need to be dealt with.

You'll report into the Legal Director, and take on a highly commercial legal role, which will incorporate significant exposure to the senior management team. To be successful in this role, you will need to be lawyer with a track record in contracts, corporate, projects, litigation or banking background, ideally gained at a major commercial law firm or well respected in house team.

We are looking for an individual with a positive 'can do' attitude who shows the ability to adapt in a commercially driven environment. You will be pragmatic and commercially minded, and to be comfortable in a fast moving and dynamic business. You will also need excellent inter-personal skills and a demonstrable ability to work effectively as part of a team. Additionally, the business uses the support of a number of external law firms and so you will need to be adept at instructing external counsel.
