Head of Legal – International Media Company – London based

My client is an international media company based in the heart of London and it is looking for its first in-house lawyer.  This is an exciting opportunity to establish a legal function and work closely with the senior management team on legal, risk and compliance matters. 

Although the company has been established for 30 years it is going through a growth phase and is consolidating international arrangements as well as acquiring new businesses.  You will work closely with the business to assess risk, co-ordinate corporate matters and liaise with local counsel during this project.   On a day-to-day basis you will be responsible for reviewing and negotiating commercial contracts, managing the company’s IP portfolio and establish risk profiles for the business among other things.

As well as being an experienced corporate/commercial lawyer you must be able to demonstrate a track record of working with senior managers, taking responsibility for managing a legal function (or part thereof) and be comfortable leading on complex projects.  Being highly organised, efficient and having a strong commercial acumen are a pre-requisite.

The successful candidate will enjoy a fulfilling role in a friendly and family-oriented company. There is a diverse, international workforce with a media vibe and we are seeking somebody with energy and can-do attitude to lead the legal function.

My client is open to considering this role on a part-time or full-time basis and also offers flexible working (work from home) options.

If you are keen to know more about this fantastic opportunity please get in touch with Michelle Corneby at Yexible,  michelle@yexible.com or on 0207 337 2717.
