As modular building innovators, operating in ten countries across Europe, quality is at the heart of everything the company does. For more than 50 years, Portakabin has been delivering market-leading modular buildings for every application – from offices and schools to hospitals and retail outlets.
Portakabin employs more than 1,750 people worldwide and has substantial operations in construction, engineering, manufacturing and property development. As a pioneer of off-site construction techniques, it has worked with clients of all sizes in all sectors, demonstrating the versatility of its building products and design capabilities, time and again.

The Role

The company is seeking a talented lawyer to join their UK head office, in the role of In-house Legal Counsel.

Reporting into the General Counsel, you will advise on all commercial legal matters across the business and internal stakeholders. You will take day to day responsibility for reviewing and negotiating on contracts with both customers and suppliers as well as taking a proactive approach to any other ad hoc legal matters. 

You will also be involved in all regulatory matters, including regulatory compliance on aspects such as GDPR and provide support and advice to the business in relation to contractual provisions where commercial disputes arise.

The Candidate

To be considered for this role you will be a UK qualified solicitor with high-quality legal training from a respected large / medium sized commercial law firm or an in-house legal department. You will have strong knowledge of commercial contracts, construction law or commercial projects and have the proven ability to manage a high volume workload and multiple competing priorities. You will also be a conscientious self-starter and have the ability to translate legal advice for all internal employees including senior management.

Key Attractions

  • Broad spectrum of legal work for a pioneering, innovative and market leading business.
  • Regular management team exposure since sound legal advice underpins all areas of the UK and the European business.
  • International and multi-jurisdictional legal work.

As from 25th July 2019, this in-house legal recruitment project is being handled exclusively by Andy Balmer of Florit Legal, Portakabin’s newly appointed retained search consultants, and all direct or third-party applications will be forwarded to them for consideration.
