An exciting opportunity has arisen to join Chelsea Football Club's legal department, to support the Club's growing commercial programme.

The role:

The successful candidate will enjoy a multi-faceted role as part of a small team that works across a broad range of matters, including broadcasting, image rights, licensing, marketing, operations and sponsorship. They will also work closely with members of the Club's senior management team and have the opportunity to lead on a range of legal and non-legal projects.

The profile:

You will have trained and qualified at a leading City or regional law firm with between two and four years PQE in a commercial or corporate practice area. Applicants should have strong drafting and negotiation skills and be able to demonstrate an enthusiastic and collaborative approach to providing high-quality commercial legal advice. Previous football or sports industry experience is not a prerequisite, and it is not necessary to be a football fan.

You must generally have drive and enthusiasm about your work and an ability to demonstrate pro-active ownership and management of tasks and projects through to completion. You will also have excellent inter-personal and team working skills that inspire trust and confidence both within the Club's legal team and amongst its internal clients.
