Walgreens Boots Alliance is the largest retail pharmacy, health and daily living destination across the USA and Europe. Together with its equity method investments, Walgreens Boots Alliance has a presence in more than 25 countries and employs more than 400,000 people.

Walgreens Boots Alliance was created through the combination of Walgreens and Alliance Boots in December 2014. This transaction brought together two leading companies with iconic brands, complementary geographic footprints, shared values and a heritage of trusted healthcare services through pharmaceutical wholesaling and community pharmacy care, dating back more than 100 years.

The company is a global leader in pharmacy-led, health and wellbeing retail with one of the largest global pharmaceutical wholesale and distribution networks.

An exciting new position has arisen for a lawyer to join the team based in Weybridge. Responsibilities will include providing clear and incisive legal advice on a broad range of commercial matters across a variety of jurisdictions.  This is likely to include advising on contracts (commercial, procurement, licensing, distribution, events, M&A), disputes, regulatory matters, data protection and compliance.  The workload is internationally diverse with the opportunity for travel.

You will contribute broadly to the leadership of the business, working effectively with senior members of the legal team and senior management both in the UK and internationally. Candidates must have the ability to create strong relationships with the divisional businesses, functions and local country businesses who should view him or her as a “go-to” person in the legal team.

To be successful you must have a strong academic background and trained at a highly regarded law firm. In-house experience and/or some understanding of the retail, pharmaceutical or distribution sector is desirable but not essential.  International experience and/or languages would also be desirable.

You will have the ability to work autonomously, think strategically and creatively and communicate clearly and precisely. You must be enthusiastic, proactive, enjoy working hard and being challenged, and demonstrate sound judgment. You will be able to work in a fast paced environment and become an integral part of the Walgreens Boots Alliance legal team.  You will be supported by senior members of the legal team and the General Counsel and become a valued member of this small and friendly team.

To apply, please contact Davina Fisher at Taylor Root on 44 (0) 207 415 2828 or email
