GLOBAL GENERAL COUNSEL
Six Figure Package + Equity and Bonus - Bristol
Operating globally and with a turnover exceeding £250m, the business is now gearing up for their next ambitious phase of growth that will see significant expansion over the coming years. Partnered by one of the world’s leading private equity investors (KKR) and with further significant targets in the pipeline, they are looking for an exceptional General Counsel for an exciting greenfield opportunity to establish, lead and shape the Legal and Compliance function, based at the head office in Bristol.
This is a rare opportunity to play a significant part in a great success story. Reporting to the CFO, this is a newly created role operating as Group General Counsel for a global organisation. Given the ambitious growth targets and increasing impact of compliance and regulation across the business, you will own the development of the commercial in-house legal function, providing support at both Group level and to the various trading entities across the globe. High levels of M&A activity worldwide will require your legal, strategic and transactional support.
As part of this expansive role, you will be required to develop key relationships across the business that will be instrumental to your success, requiring some international travel across Europe, Asia Pacific, the Middle East, Africa and the Americas.
We are looking for an exceptional and experienced lawyer who will share our client’s vision and values. You will join an incredibly close-knit organisation and a team of highly committed people who have been instrumental in the success of A-Gas over the last 25 years.
We would expect the successful applicant to display an energetic, driven and self-starting attitude and a strong commercial view. In addition, an initial hands-on approach to the day to day legal work will be essential.
You will embrace and lead their strong team-centred culture of ‘Together We Can’ in which people are the heart of the business, delivering with innovation, passion and commitment.
A dedicated team-player, you will demonstrate a flexible and commercial approach, be a strong communicator and have the gravitas and credibility to influence and advise at both main board level and with external stakeholders and investors.
Substantial previous in-house experience is a pre-requisite, with international exposure within a high growth environment being a distinct advantage. The breadth and range of general commercial and corporate matters would indicate a level of no less than 10 years post qualified experience.
