Approaching an exciting and ambitious phase of growth and development, my client - an international energy and urban solutions provider - is seeking a UK qualified solicitor to head up an established and well regarded In-house legal team from their UK headquarters in Teesside.

As a member of the UK Senior Leadership team, the Head of Legal, Regulatory and Compliance will report directly to the CEO, with a dotted line into the APAC General Counsel. You'll be responsible and accountable for all of the legal, regulatory and compliance affairs of the UK's business by driving outcomes, leading change and engagement with stakeholders, both internal and external.

It's likely to suit someone with at least 10 years PQE in high level corporate or commercial law, gained from either a top tier law firm or blue-chip In-house environment. There is a strong preference to appoint an outgoing and personable manager with experience in the energy sector, including understanding of the current electricity market regulatory framework - ideally!

Day to day you'll perform the role of General Counsel to the UK business, utilising internal and external legal resources whilst ensuring the UK group and its subsidiaries, comply with all Group and local legal, fiscal, HR/union policies.

It's a hugely varied, challenging and rewarding role with a fantastic legal team of high calibre individuals. Those candidates with experience of leading a UK subsidiary of an international organisation are especially welcome to apply.

The role is offered on a hybrid basis with an appealing salary and benefits package, reflecting the importance of this position within the UK operation. For a confidential discussion please contact our exclusively retained consultant on steve.shakespeare@saccomann.com or 0113 467 9789.
