A new in-house legal role has been created for an experienced lawyer with obvious business acumen, a corporate and/or commercial contracts background and the desire to develop their career as an in-house lawyer in Leeds.
Reporting to the General Counsel, you will play a key part in a range of legal matters as the company continues to grow.
These will focus on a variety of commercial contracts which underpin the company’s range of services to retail customers. Where required, you are likely to assist with other more strategic corporate or company secretarial matters and help to keep the company compliant with a range of legislation in a fast-response sector.
Clipper values people with agility, ability and credibility. So, if you aspire to those values and can deliver legal advice in plain and simple English, draft and negotiate contracts in a pragmatic and results focused manner and help us to solve problems for retailers by thinking differently and understanding their needs, you will play a key part in helping us to continue to evolve logistics.
A competitive salary and benefits package is available, including company, car, bonus and pension, in an environment where an aspiring in-house lawyer will have a platform to grow and significantly develop their in-house legal career over the coming years.
This recruitment assignment is being handled exclusively by Miguel Florit and Andy Balmer of our retained search consultants Florit Legal and all direct or third party applications will be forwarded to them for consideration.
