Value Retail, developer and operator of Chic Outlet Shopping® Villages, is the only company to specialise exclusively in the development and operation of luxury outlet shopping Villages. Chic Outlet Shopping® Villages are recognised worldwide as "must visit" destinations for the international long-haul traveller.

The business is managed by an energetic, retail-savvy senior management team and has ambitious revenue growth plans. This forms the basis of the unique culture that has been developed at Value Retail - passionate, dynamic, creative and cosmopolitan. It is not a traditional corporate environment.

The Corporate, Legal & Finance team of Value Retail provides legal support to all the central teams at Value Retail as well as maintaining oversight of and providing support to the legal teams in each jurisdiction in which the Chic Outlet Shopping® Villages are based.

We are seeking a highly motivated, commercially minded and energetic lawyer to fill the key role of Deputy Legal Director (Corporate). In this role you will support the general corporate activities of the Corporate, Legal & Finance team whilst having specific responsibility for covering the legal aspects and requirements of: Corporate Administration & Governance, Insurance, Data Protection and CRM Project, Human Resources, Procurement and General Contracts.

Our culture is underpinned by an uncompromising commitment to excellence; we are results driven with the goal of providing practical legal solutions to our colleagues to help them meet the aggressive business targets that underpin Value Retail's continued success.

We are a business that thrives on personal relationships - above all we are "retailers working for retailers" - and this philosophy can be seen in the many and varied personalities working within the business. Our diverse culture and truly international workforce mean that we are a team of individuals; an intercultural mindset is essential.

The Deputy Legal Director (Corporate), Corporate Legal & Finance, must be comfortable working with a diverse group of colleagues and be capable of developing close working relationships with senior members of the management team. For this level of role the legal knowledge required will be a given; equally important for Value Retail are personality, fit with the culture and the soft skills required successfully to fill this strategic role. Experience of corporate administration & governance and insurance is critical for this hire.
