In House Legal Counsel

An innovative multinational engineering company who design, manufacture and sell high-tech products, via a number of well-known brands, is now seeking to recruit an In House Legal Counsel at their offices in Bedfordshire.

This company operates in over 150 countries and have a range of products which are both innovative and desirable. They have a strong UK presence, which includes dedicated legal support, and they have a real commitment to career development. Employees are given a real position of trust and responsibility from day one, and progression is actively encouraged.

Due to growth and an increased demand for legal support, there is now a requirement for a Legal Counsel to join the team in Bedfordshire. The role is broadly commercial with a specific focus on legal support to the company's procurement function, as well as the R&D, marketing, IP and new technology teams. Work includes reviewing, negotiating and drafting various commercial contracts; assisting key stakeholders with on-going contract management; assisting the Head of Department; supporting supplier insolvency issues; and providing first class legal expertise on all matters relating to the business.

This role would suit a 1-2 year qualified Solicitor/Barrister with contract and commercial law experience. An ability to draft and negotiate a range of commercial contracts is essential, as is an ability to work autonomously. Knowledge and experience of working within an in-house legal environment is preferred but not essential. Fluency in English is essential (written and spoken) and other language skills are welcome.

This is a superb opportunity for a junior solicitor to join a leading engineering company and to work on a broad range of legal matters in support of the business across the UK and Europe.
