Job Description

An exciting new role to join this high profile legal team and work alongside a group of experienced and friendly in-house lawyers.  These are fixed-term contracts – 12 months – and ideally you should have at least 5 years’ pqe in commercial contracts with an understanding of the financial services sector.  Our Client will also consider someone with general commercial contracts experience or IT and Data Protection experience.

As a solicitor, you will provide direction to the business by providing legal and technical advice, guidance and recommendations to enable business decision making and support the Group in fulfilling its business aims in connection with commercial matters and some of your key tasks will include:

  • Providing legal and technical advice on commercial matters to help the Group fulfil its business aims by liaising with all areas of the business as appropriate.  Developing strong relationships with senior management.
  • Providing legal and technical advice to all levels within the Group, up to and including executive level, on commercial matters in a risk aware, solution focused, commercial way as part of the relevant business team minimising the need for external legal advice.
  • Ensuring that the company’s contractual documentation is of the appropriate standard.
  • Supporting the activities of the Group Legal and Company Secretariat department to meet the high and medium priorities of the business by providing legal and technical advice as required – this may involve assisting in matters out with the field of commercial contracts.

This is a great opportunity to learn new skills and be part of a growing and innovative business. For an initial and confidential discussion, please contact Frasia or Cameron on 01294 850501.  (Assignment 9033)
