At Hain Daniels, we've developed a real recipe for success - we create delicious food and drinks with goodness at their core and we have some incredible brands and own label ranges that also capture the essence of our business. To do this, we need the best people in our team, which is why we're always looking for excellent talent.
An exciting opening has arisen for a driven and ambitious individual lawyer to join our fast-paced global food and drink business, boasting a portfolio of household brands and market leading products.
Based in our Leeds office, you will form a key and integral part of the global (UK, Europe, US and India) legal team and the business, having direct access to and responsibility for advising senior members of the business, including CEOs and MDs.
As an In House Legal Counsel, reporting to the Associate General Counsel (Europe) and interacting with senior stakeholders within the business, you will undertake a varied and interesting in house legal role where your advice is critical to the business meeting its objectives.
No two days will be the same - you may be reviewing review terms & conditions, or assessing risks and proposing solutions for matters derived from a complex, multimillion pound CapEx project. You'll negotiate and advise on such matters as:
* Commercial contracts (purchase of goods and services and sales of products),
* Intellectual property and celebrity endorsement agreements,
* Real estate issues,
* Management of commercial disputes,
* Advising the business on regulatory compliance matters.
There would be travel opportunities - to lead meetings in advising stakeholders within the business and lead negotiation meetings.
You'll be a lawyer with a strong commercial, corporate, or contracts related background, having trained at a respected law firm or well regarded in house legal team. You'll probably need at least 2-3 years pqe to be able to undertake the role.
As well as your strong technical skillset you'll also possess excellent communication and relationship building skills, as you'll be dealing with decision makers every day. Your analytical, research and organisational abilities will help you to solve problems by providing practical, commercial, creative and constructive solutions.
As this role has an international element, language skills would be an asset, as would cross border experience, though these are not essential.
This is a challenging, interesting and highly rewarding role , well remunerated with a package including car allowance and bonus.
