Part-Time Sole Counsel - 12-month Contract.

We are proud to support a UK-wide commercial and forward-looking Charity, seeking a part-time Sole Counsel to be based at their Sussex offices for 3 days a week, on a 12-month fixed-term contract.
 
This Part-Time Sole Counsel role reports to the Director of Finance for the Charity, and is to involve building and growing a small team, as well as providing strategic and high-quality support to the Board on priority matters. Every day will present unique and interesting challenges for the Sole Counsel; from being able to hold their own with the Board, to dealing with property leases, joint-ventures, and transactional commercial and commercial litigation matters. The role is offered on roughly 21 hours per week, and the new Sole Counsel will be able to design their week to best suit their situation - ideally with no two days off in a row. 
 
Applicants should be qualified in the UK as a Solicitor and should have at least 5 years' PQE, with strong training, excellent commercial transactional experience, and nous. As this position is senior within the organisation, and the successful candidate will need to grow a team and work closely with the Board; demonstrable leadership skills are essential. Given the initial fixed-term nature of the role, candidates must be able to start work with no more than 1 months' notice.
 
This role represents a key hire for this successful charity, and the new part-time Sole Counsel will enjoy a challenging, rewarding career, competitive salary package and an opportunity to make a difference, within this friendly and successful Charity.
 
Should this position have piqued your interest, and you would like to find out more about this Part-Time Sole Counsel role in Sussex; please get in touch with Catherine at G2 Legal. 020 7649 9298.
