Manchester headquartered BCL Legal, one of the leading legal recruitment consultancies outside London, has been appointed by the University of Salford to recruit for two new roles.
With around 20,000 students and a turnover of approximately £200m the University of Salford is a university with ambition. As part of its strategic plan – “Transforming our University” – it has recently gained 25 places in the Guardian League Table, 2013. This is a significant step towards its aspirations of being in the top 40 of UK universities by 2017. It is also the only university to invest in MediaCity where it has state of the art media facilities and it is also investing £650m in its campus regeneration scheme.
The first role is for the full time position of general counsel. The successful candidate will manage a team of three and will report directly to the deputy vice-chancellor. Key duties will include providing legal, commercial and strategic input into the university’s operations and will involve working closely with key stakeholders.
The second brief is to find a part time employment solicitor. This role, which will involve working closely with HR, will be challenging and diverse and will include advising on all aspects of employment law and HR matters. Where appropriate, the position will also include working with specialist suppliers of legal services.
Mark Levine, head of BCL Legal’s in-house department commented; “The University of Salford is changing and with this comes real opportunity. We are proud to have been instructed as these two new roles have been created to help the organisation achieve its vision”.
