A Bedfordshire-based professional services group is seeking to recruit a Contracts Manager to join the team as a result of business growth and with a view to providing additional support to the business.

The Role

Reporting to the Head of Legal the role will encompass the following:
· Reviewing, drafting and negotiating a variety of commercial contracts, analysing legal/commercial risk and proposing mitigation;
· Responding to some ad hoc legal queries from all parts of the business and senior management;
· Handling litigation matters involving clients and suppliers, instructing and managing external counsel where appropriate to do so;
· Instructing and liaising with external counsel where necessary, agreeing budgets and managing the matter on behalf of the business.

The Person

Individuals applying for this position should be an experienced Contracts Manager with a proven track record of reviewing, drafting and negotiating commercial contracts. Experience in the other points above would be advantageous but not crucial, but a willingness to learn and be involved in other areas would be favourable. Previous in-house experience, ideally within the professional services sector, is desired but not essential. An ability to work autonomously in a fast-moving and highly pressurised role is essential, so previous experience working to tight time scales under your own initiative will be a real advantage.

An attractive salary is on offer.
Our client will consider applications from individuals seeking to work part-time.

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