IN HOUSE COMMERCIAL LEGAL COUNSEL, NQ - 2+ YEARS' PQE
This is a superb opportunity to join a fantastic in house legal team that is well organised and structured. 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 which moved in house as they wanted to gain more control over their work/life balance but equally still be given lots of opportunities to progress and develop.
Your role would include handling a broad range of commercial matters with a focus on the sales side of this well-known business/brand. You would be expected to: provide advice and drafting to bid managers who negotiate corporate customer contracts; draft and negotiate sales contracts; prepare standard form agreements and terms; support the business on special projects; instruct and manage external lawyers; and also at times provide internal training and development for your internal clients. Although you would join this particular team, it is highly likely that over time you will be encouraged to switch teams in order to gain a full understanding of the business.
This could be a great chance to make your first move in house and become a commercial lawyer. The business has historically been known to take ex City candidates who are bright, personable and engaging, yet may not currently be in a commercial team, but keen to make the transition across.
The business takes a very grown up approach to work and everybody is encouraged to manage their time accordingly. As a result there is lots of flexibility around working arrangements.
This is a very supportive team, offering a fantastic working environment. If you would like to discuss this opportunity in more detail, please send your CV to firstname.lastname@example.org or call on 020 3174 2353.
