In-house Commercial Solicitor
Multi-divisional financial services heavyweight, requires a commercial Solicitor for a highly regarded and established In-House legal team, based in West Yorkshire.
The legal department is integral to the business and as such you will need to be a positive-minded and confident client facing solicitor, who is able to offer pragmatic and user friendly legal advice and commercially viable solutions within a heavy regulated environment. This is a varied role in a fast paced and challenging environment. You'll need to have some experience in the drafting and negotiating of agreements and an interest in understanding the commercial implications of the groups' legal terms - and how they affect the nature of your key stakeholders business. As such, you'll be someone who is likely to have at least a year or so PQE and will thrive in an environment which relies on your ability to communicate with the wider business.
Financial services experience is NOT a pre-requisite as the role is more of a generalist position, however an appreciation or interest in regulated sectors would prove advantageous.
The position would suit someone who is looking to make their first move In-house and requiring a supportive team environment, or equally someone looking to make a step up into a wider role.
Salary is commensurate with your experience, however we would imagine this is likely to suit someone with around 1-5 years PQE.
