Commercial Lawyer, Asset Finance Company, 12 month contract
About the Company
This organisation makes transport available for those who require adapted vehicles. The organisation is able to offer this service as it is a unique blend of being a not-for-profit and for-profit organisation, the for-profit side being in the form of a large asset finance business. With an annual turnover of over £4 billion, the business model is designed to ensure operations are stable and sustainable in the long term which allows this service to continue, especially through all economic cycles.
The company now has a need for a Commercial lawyer to join the business for at least 12 months, commencing late May/early June. The role will lead on key commercial contracts as well as tech contacts relating to cloud hosting, software licensing and software development. In addition, you will also be involved with the unique corporate structure and advise on this from time to time. This is a broad ranging in-house role and will also cover matters such as business advice, company compliance, litigation and risk. The role is also an opportunity to be part of a small but cohesive legal team which works closely with the business.
The role will suit a commercial lawyer who likes a variety of work and who enjoys working in a collegiate team. Whilst a broad in-house commercial background is key, some tech experience would be well-utilised. Being available to start end of May/early June would also be highly preferable. The role offers excellent quality work with a very unique organisation and an environment where people are genuinely happy to be there.
