MANCHESTER - OLD TRAFFORD

Manchester United is one of the world's leading football clubs and globally renowned brands. Our stated vision is to be the best football club in the world, both on and off the pitch, and the Legal & Business Affairs team at Manchester United is committed to playing its part in achieving and maintaining that vision.

The Role

In order to support the club's success, growth and ambitions, we are seeking an additional talented lawyer to join the Commercial Legal Services team based in Manchester.

Reporting to the Head of Commercial Legal Services, you will principally provide legal support to: (i) the club's commercial and sports marketing operations, particularly on the exploitation of commercial rights (such as through sponsorship, media and merchandising partnerships); and (ii) the club's football operations, including player-related transactions and image rights.

The Person

All applicants should be fully qualified to practice in the UK, with an excellent academic record and experience gained with a reputable firm. A good understanding of the business of football is also essential.

The ideal candidate will have excellent drafting and negotiation skills gained from an in-house role in the sports or media industry, or working in private practice with a particular focus on these business sectors.

You must be able to work both autonomously and as part of a team, providing technically sound legal advice in a commercially-focussed manner. You shall be committed and service-orientated, willing to work on a flexible basis and able to manage multiple work-streams to tight timescales.

In return, you will benefit from outstanding support and professional training, complete high profile and challenging work, and enjoy excellent development opportunities in this highly regarded team.
