IN HOUSE COMMERCIAL LEGAL COUNSEL, 12 MONTH FIXED TERM CONTRACT, NQ - 3 YEARS' PQE +
This is an exciting opportunity to join one of the best in-house legal teams in the UK. You will be given lots of high quality work and responsibility, whilst being surrounded by a team of bright, personable and engaging ex City lawyers, all of whom were fed up of the hours of private practice and wanted to be closer to a business, where they would be given lots of responsibility and be able to see the daily impact of their work on the business, whilst also having lots of flexibility around working arrangements.
Although this is a 12 month contract, it is highly likely that during the course of the 12 month period you would be offered something more permanent due to the evolving nature of the team, so definitely worth considering if you are keen to get your foot in the door and make the move in–house to a fantastic legal team.
The work will be largely commercial in nature and so solid drafting and negotiation skills are a pre-requisite. You will be expected to work on lots of large high value contracts, and at times undertake bespoke drafting. Ideally you will have at least spent a seat in commercial, though they will consider bright candidates who may currently be in corporate, or banking and finance, but keen to do something different.
This is a very supportive team, offering a fantastic working environment with great opportunities to progress.
Please note our advertisements use PQE/salary levels purely as a guide. However we are happy to consider applications from all candidates who are able to demonstrate the skills necessary to fulfil the role.
