Exciting opportunity to join a global listed business as a Senior In-house Lawyer working within an established in-house legal team.

Working closely with the Head of Legal, the role will provide legal advice and support to the business across a wide range of legal matters, including commercial contracts, litigation, employment and corporate. The predominant focus will be commercial contract work and the role offers the opportunity to work with listed blue chip organisations, internationally renowned privately owned companies and clients within the SME sector.

Working autonomously, the role will provide proactive and in-depth legal advice and support to the organisation through analysing legal and commercial risk within commercial contracts and proposing mitigation where required.

The ideal candidate would be a qualified Solicitor with a minimum of 4 years PQE with a good understanding of commercial contract law and some experience of litigation and employment law. The successful candidate will respond to legal queries, from all parts of the business, giving clear, consistent and practical advice on contract interpretation. Therefore, candidates will be expected to adapt to ad hoc queries in a fast paced environment.

You will have outstanding customer facing skills coupled with an attention to detail. You will have a proven track record of being able to work well under pressure and meet deadlines in an environment laced with a wide variety of challenges and unexpected interruptions.

This is a permanent, full-time role. Currently you will need to be in the office 2 days per week and going forward the role is unlikely to be full-time office based with a minimum of 2 days in the office the long term expectation.
