In House Legal Counsel

Newcastle and Tyneside
In House
Contract Type:
Permanent role
Reference Number:


Our client is a major international business, with significant operations in the North East, and an well-established and significantly sized legal and commercial team. The company has a strong 'brand' and works as a major player at the forefront of its industry.

Their current need is to hire a commercial lawyer (or possibly someone with extensive contracts experience though not 'formally' qualified) to undertake a year long fixed term contract, working closely with and supporting the sales teams on a range of commercial contract negotiations. You'll need to ensure that the high value and complex contracts mitigate risk to the business, whilst at the same time helping to get the deal done.

For this role, you could be a qualified solicitor or have extensive commercial contracts skills gained in-house. What's most important are to have the commercial 'nous' to be fully involved in negotiations and the technical ability to ensure excellently drafted contracts. You'll also need strong communications skills, as you could be working with wither a senior board member on one project or junior line manager on another.

This company has a good track record in offering career development and opportunities, and has an excellent reputation as a reputable employer and an enjoyable environment in which to work.

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