An exceptional opportunity has arisen to join an entrepreneurial organization in the energy sector, in their established high calibre team,
The business is the UK division of a leading European energy group, which owns over EUR 16 bn of assets and employs 25,000 people.

Our client is now looking to further bolster their existing legal team, one role of which is the recruitment of a Legal Manager, to take on a diverse construction / projects related role. Given the nature of their operations you would work on a variety of construction and projects related matters, but you need also to have the confidence to step outside your comfort zone and work on a variety of other legal matters that would arise from time to time, procurement, litigation, commercial contracts etc. This is a wide-ranging role and would suit someone wishing to expand their remit from the necessarily narrower role you might find in a law firm.
As well as technical skills, personality fit within this business is key, and you'll need to be someone who enjoys taking on significant responsibility, and you'll probably have at least 6 years pqe to undertake the role. A carefully scripted advice note is not what you'll be providing, but broad commercial legal advice on a range of matters to enable the business to achieve their goals
Hybrid working is the norm, with a couple of days a week in their Leeds office. The business offers exceptional remuneration, on a par with private practice, as well as a great bonus which has a track record of paying out well.
This is a truly exciting opportunity to join a dynamic business, in which the lawyers are an integral part of the decision making process. You will have a real impact on the organisation in this role
