Description

Rentalcars.com - the world's largest online car hire booking service - seeks to recruit a commercial / IT solicitor to work as Legal Counsel at our offices in Manchester city centre. We are a leading e-commerce company and we are part of the multi-billion dollar NASDAQ listed travel company Priceline Group.

Rentalcars.com is the world's largest online car hire booking service - arranging over 8.5 million rentals a year in more than 50,000 locations worldwide. We employ over 1500 people from 64 countries across 3 sites in Manchester city centre and we are growing at a significant pace.

As a part of Priceline Group - a multi-billion dollar NASDAQ travel company - we are a member of the world's leading and most valuable travel group. Other group companies include: Booking.com, Priceline.com, Kayak, Agoda and OpenTable. Priceline is the third largest e-commerce company in the world (behind Amazon and Alibaba) and has in recent years consistently been one of Fortune's four most admired tech companies (alongside Google, Amazon, and Facebook). We have been busy recruiting some of the biggest names in the tech sector to come and join us in Manchester and we are now looking for an additional lawyer to join our team.

You will join our great team of lawyers, working in Manchester's coolest offices right here in the city centre. We want and need our lawyers to be involved in everything that we do - and we are doing a lot! Not only are we growing exponentially we are constantly looking for new and innovative ways to be involved in the customer journey of ground transportation and car rental. Involve leading technology and you get a glimpse of the vision we have for the future of our business.

In this role you will be involved in a huge variety of projects and legal matters, including:

Drafting and negotiating global supply contracts
Assisting with the development of new product streams
Dealing with our commercial team regarding new suppliers and sales queries
Assisting the business in relation to the consumer journey and consumer protection issues
Assisting with regulatory queries relating to the development of 'add on' products
Various corporate related matters including governance and general administration
Become the first point of contact for legal queries for your dedicated areas of work

Who we are looking for is just as important if not more important than your current skill base. You should be a commercially minded lawyer that looks to question the usual way of doing things, be interested in working in a tech led environment and be someone that is looking to take control of projects - not just waiting to be told what to do. Don't worry if you don't have all the experience that we might need - we can teach that, all you need to bring is a genuine interest in being a part of a company like Rentalcars.com, commercial awareness and energy.

Based in Manchester this is a global opportunity and travel should be expected. If this reads like the kind of place that you would like to work as an in-house lawyer please contact Craig Wilson or Mark Levine at BCL Legal.

If you're interested in this role, please apply now or forward an up-to-date copy of your CV, or call us.
If this job isn't quite right, please contact us for a confidential discussion on your career.
