Your new company

Headquartered in Central London with an open plan environment and a small in-house legal function, this civil engineering company has exciting projects in over 40 countries across the globe. This innovative company is unique in the market and has contributed to projects which have won over 250 design awards. Culturally, this company stands out from the crowd and has a very sociable environment.

Your new role

This is an initial maternity cover position on a six month basis with potential to go permanent for the right candidate. Reporting into the Legal Director and Company Secretary, you will support the legal team on a variety of legal matters including commercial contracts and construction contracts. You will also advise on data protection issues.

What you'll need to succeed

You will need to be commercially astute and have strong exposure drafting, reviewing and negotiating a range of commercial contracts. You will need to be able to interact across the business and be a strong communicator. You will have gained the LPC qualification or relevant equivalent qualification and ideally have had experience in a private practice or in-house background. Experience with construction or engineering agreements will be welcomed but this is certainly not mandatory. Cultural fit is the key decider for this organisation.

What you'll get in return

Although this is an initial interim basis, this has the potential to become permanent for the right candidate where you can truly enjoy a progressive career with an increasingly growing organisation that invests in your personal development. You will join a fantastic company culture with exceptional benefits.
