Our client is looking for a Sole Legal Counsel / Commercial Lawyer to join their busy and growing business. This is a varied and interesting role with a focus on drafting and negotiating a wide range of commercial contracts and agreements.

As the business’ Sole Legal Counsel & Head of Legal , you will be involved in varied and challenging work and play a key role in decisions.

This is a good opportunity for a Senior Legal Counsel to step up into a Head of Legal position for the first time.

The ideal candidate will:

  • Help the company on a wide range of other legal matters such as compliance, data protection, employment / HR issues and commercial property
