About the Company

This leading healthcare business is a truly caring business which vales both its people and patients as well issues such as the wider environment, with a genuine care for sustainability (it has been included in the FTSE4Good Global Index for the last 10 years for its ESG practices.) It is also rather unique in that it has a foundation which invests its dividends into charitable causes. Whilst being now a large business and listed in two countries, it is run with a feeling of “togetherness” and collaboration. Its hospitals and medical facilities have a particular focus on cancer and general surgery.

The Opportunity

The business now has a need for a Senior Legal Counsel to join and play a key role in providing commercial legal advice to the business. In addition, you will draft and negotiate a wide range of commercial contracts and provide legal support on projects, governance, regulatory matters. You will be part of a small and cohesive legal team which is highly integrated within the business and you will assist in mentoring and leading more junior members of the team.

You will have access to high quality work as well as a keen sense and awareness of working for an highly principled company.

About You

The position will suit a lawyer with a corporate or corporate/commercial skill-set. The business will be looking for an individual with the same values of the business and as a result, this is genuinely a really lovely place to work. The nature of the work could suit an individual coming directly from private practice, or an individual who has worked in a broad in-house position. Healthcare industry experience is not essential but developing an interest in this sector would be useful. Strong interpersonal skills, a commercial approach and can-do attitude are all key. Excellent communication skills and the ability to navigate sensitively through highly complex matters are also essential. 

This is an excellent opportunity to join a well-known healthcare business in a key role for the business in a 4 day a week capacity with lots of flexibility.

Please apply now or for further details, please contact Maneesha Howard of Graff Search on 0203 026 2236 or maneesha@graffsearch.co.uk.
