In House Counsel

York and North Yorkshire
In House
Contract Type:
Temporary role
Reference Number:


Our client, an acquisitive and successful North Yorkshire based PLC with a turnover in the hundreds of millions, is seeking to compliment their legal department with the appointment of an additional solicitor, to undertake a mix of commercial and corporate work. This appointment will be on a 6 month fixed term contract initially but is likely to be extended and possibly made permanent.

Our client is a well established plc, and one of the leaders in its sector. They have a high calibre legal team which has undergone substantial growth and, driven by positive business results, now need to add to the team to help with a range of BAU legal work and broader corporate matters.

The business continues to expand and the legal team grows to support that expansion. This role would cover a range of commercial matters, including contracts (both B2B and B2C), supporting corporate activity on acquisitions, IP issues, data protection and a variety of other legal work. In short, a varied and interesting in house role.

The ideal hire would be a lawyer with some commercial / corporate experience and from 2-6 years' pqe in a 'business law' environment. You may be from a corporate, commercial, projects or regulatory background (Financial services or otherwise), but your specialism is less important that your positive 'can do' attitude and adaptability. You will need strong communication skills, be a genuine 'team player', and to be comfortable in a fast moving and dynamic business. You will probably be working at a recognised commercial law firm or in house legal department, and want to move to an organisation which strongly recognises the need for continuing professional development. Ideally you will have gained some experience of working in house (possibly through a secondment), but most important is having the right aptitude to fit into the in house environment.

If you're interested in this role, please apply now or forward an up-to-date copy of your CV, or call us.
