Head of Legal - International - Mothercare plc
Born in 1961, Mothercare has been a favourite of mums and dads for over 50 years. We pride ourselves on being the place to go to for all parenting needs including award winning clothing collections, quality home & travel products and that all important expert help and advice. And in 2007 we welcomed Early Learning Centre into our club. In the last few years we've been on quite a journey. We've invested in positive changes to transform us into a digitally led business, with modern stores and infrastructure. What remains is our brand heritage, the expertise of our people and the pride and passion in everything that we do.
As Head of Legal - International for Mothercare you will report directly to the General Counsel & Group Company Secretary, and have responsibility for advising our International business which operates in over 60 countries worldwide. Working very closely with the International team and sitting on the International Board, you will support the team primarily on franchising and wholesale contracts. You will also manage the global IP portfolio with a focus on trademarks and designs and brand protection.
You must possess extensive experience working in an in-house legal environment preferably within the fashion, retail or FMCG industry. You will have at least eight years' post qualification experience and have trained at a leading private practice firm. Knowledge of IP is essential. You will need to be a self-starter with the ability to work independently and at pace, demonstrating a commercial and practical approach in dealing with a variety of legal issues across multiple geographical locations and legal systems.
