COMMERCIAL HEAD OF LEGAL ROLE, HARD INDUSTRY- KENT
HEAD OF LEGAL
We have been instructed by a large independent construction and materials group to search for a senior Corporate/Commercial lawyer. You will be based primarily at the company's Kent HQ, as business needs dictate.
You will have a strong company commercial background, in the widest sense. This will include solid legal experience in the following areas:
- General commercial contracts - including supply, distribution and procurement;
- Corporate finance and banking;
- M&A and joint ventures;
- Construction contracts; and
- Company secretarial.
The remit will include hands-on drafting and negotiating (eg. of major supply agreements) whilst at the same time being part of the senior management team and getting involved in the practical issues of running the business.
You will have at least 10+ years' PQE, a strong academic record and good training from a well-respected regional or City firm. You are likely to have moved in-house already (ideally within construction or another hard industry sector). The successful candidate will have an operationally focused, enabling mindset, rather than seeing themselves as a "gatekeeper" and will have excellent interpersonal skills. The team is small (one other lawyer) and the structure will be flat.
The compensation package is particularly competitive, with an excellent basic salary and project related bonuses.
For a further discussion in the strictest confidence please send your CV ASAP - regrettably, we cannot discuss the role further without an accompanying CV.
