Job Details

I am instructed with a 12-month fixed-term contract position working with a highly skilled in-house legal team. This is a hybrid working role where my client will only require 2 days a week in their Leeds office.

As a big name in the financial sector, my client offers some extremely high quality work for candidates with good general commercial contracts experience. Any candidates that also have experience of offering financial regulatory advice will be of particular interest to my client. It is essential that candidates applying for this role be qualified solicitors with their relevant experience having been gained in UK private practice firms or other reputable commercial/financial organisations.

The ideal PQE for this role is someone within the 4 PQE+ range. However, if there are junior qualified candidates with exceptionally strong experience in commercial contracts / financial regulatory advice, then they will equally be considered for this role.

My client has a budget of between £50,000 - £63,000 depending on the level of experience that candidates can bring to the role, in addition to a benefits package that includes matched pension contributions up to 10% and a colleague bonus of up to 12%.

Any candidates wishing to discuss this role further should e-mail to arrange a time to speak over the phone.
