Our client is a fast growing IT services company based in the heart of the City of London. Established in the early 2000s, the business now employs more than 6,000 people across Europe and the Americas and has ambitious plans for growth over the next few years.
The legal function will play an integral part in that growth and is currently looking to bolster its ranks with the hire of a Legal Counsel, to report directly to the Head of Legal. The Legal Counsel's responsibilities will encompass a wide range of generalist legal work, with a predominant focus on the drafting, review and negotiation of commercial contracts for the provision of IT services and SaaS internationally.
The ideal candidate will be a qualified solicitor (or equivalent) and have notable previous experience with commercial contracts. For guidance purposes only, candidates will likely have around 1-2 years of post qualified experience. Previous experience in the IT sector is valued but not essential and experience in IP and/or Employment law alongside commercial contracts is also beneficial.
