The company

Warner Bros. Entertainment, a WARNERMEDIA company, is a global leader in the creation, distribution, licensing and marketing of theatrical motion pictures, TV programming, animation, video/DVD, games and related products. The Company stands at the forefront of every aspect of the entertainment industry, from feature film, TV and home entertainment production, worldwide distribution (via physical product and digital platforms), animation, comic books, consumer products, brand licensing and games.

The role

Warner Bros. is looking to hire an employment lawyer to join its well-established corporate employment legal team on a 12 month fixed term basis. This is a broad and exciting role in which you will work closely with a range of business executives and colleagues, as well as HR professionals and lawyers, from Warner's EMEA and US businesses. Primarily, you will advise and assist on queries relating to UK employment law, but you will also have responsibility for supporting and assisting with employment work in some other territories in the EMEA region on non-contentious employment law matters, for example in Germany. The role is 75% UK work and 25% work in other EMEA territories but the ratio will vary over time according to business needs.

The person

As the successful candidate, you will have between 4-12 years' PQE. You will be qualified in the UK or in another European jurisdiction. Experience of working in industry is advantageous, but not essential.

The role would suit someone who is a self-starter with solid legal employment-related experience, strong written and oral skills and some prior experience of drafting and revising international policies and procedures. The ideal candidate will also have experience of training staff on employment practices and policies.

The position offers a fantastic opportunity to enter a leading international media organisation, working with a great team in a strategic and highly visible role. The position would suit someone who enjoys a varied role and is able to handle a broad range of (and in some cases new) work with enthusiasm and confidence.
