Our client has undergone significant change and growth in recent years, and is now an industry leader with an established legal team covering a broad range of interesting legal work. It is a fast paced company with a strong technology base, excellent financial results, and a multimillion pound investment plan which is enhancing their market position.

They are now looking to recruit an ambitious lawyer who can join the team and play a key role assisting the GC to effect the legal strategy and offer sensible and pragmatic legal advice on a diverse range of issues.

These issues might include bespoke commercial agreements such as negotiating and advising on complex and high value supplier contracts, IT and software agreements, distribution agreements and service contracts. It might also include governance and compliance work, and lobbying at a governmental level. Such topical issues as GDPR and the Brexit effect will require high level input from the legal team and you'll need to be comfortable advising the senior management team on such critical matters from a legal perspective.

This position would be ideal for an ambitious lawyer as it offers clear progression opportunities in a fast paced and dynamic business, which is seen as one of the shapers of its industry. You'll probably have gained at least 5 years pqe and some in-house experience, whether via secondment or a permanent role. You'll need strong technical skills and an adaptable legal brain to cope with the diverse range of legal issues that will land on your desk. You'll also need a collaborative communication style and 'can do' attitude for engaging fully with the senior management teams. There is a good package on offer including bonus and car allowance. This is a great opportunity to step in to a role where there are signifixant opportunities for progression, so if you're currently in an in house legal team where the boss isn't looking like moving anytime soon, I'd like to hear from you.
