The Group is growing at incredible pace and its customers are blue chip household names in sectors including healthcare, pharmaceuticals, consumer retail, automotive, industrial and aerospace, technology and energy.
Reporting into the Legal Director for UK/Ireland (who is a UK/Ireland Board Member), you will be given significant autonomy on matters such as:
· Providing practical, commercial legal advice across the various Business Units;
· Leading on the drafting and negotiation of high value commercial contracts with customers at local and global level for contract logistics and freight management (across all product lines and sectors) as well as procurement contracts with suppliers;
· Leading on the advice given to the Business Development team on bids and tenders for new customer contracts;
· Leading on GDPR/Data Privacy matters;
· Sharing management responsibilities of a Junior Lawyer and experienced Paralegal;
· Providing training to the business on legal matters;

· Liaising with colleagues throughout Europe and internationally across the business, and managing external lawyers.
The business moves at a fast pace and you will need to be proactive, flexible and resilient and experienced in managing stakeholders. The stakeholders will need your legal advice to be succinct, commercial, pragmatic and useable, so you will need to be able to balance legal risk with commercial reward.
This is a fantastic opportunity for a Legal Counsel or Senior Legal Counsel, who are looking for a true step up in responsibilities and exposure, with the necessary support from the Legal Director.
A very competitive basic salary, a consistent bonus, a generous car allowance and pension, life insurance and private medical. The business is operating a hybrid working policy, so applications will be considered from lawyer's able to commit to some weekly office contact.
