In-House Commercial Solicitor (12 month FTC).
Potential opportunity for part-time, flexible working.
Amazing Glasgow based opportunity to join a fantastic Government Agency as a commercial solicitor for a 12 month, fixed term, maternity cover.
We are looking for a commercial solicitor to advise on a variety of supply agreements, agency agreements, sponsorship agreements, IP matters including data protection, compliance and GDPR, and general commercial contract matters. In addition, you will be heavily involved in advising the board, therefore, company secretarial experience would be a distinct advantage. Given the seniority of this role and the nature of projects you will be advising on, it is imperative that you are a confident communicator who can manage different leadership styles and personalities. Additionally, given this role is within a Government body, a good political acumen would serve you well. The ideal candidate will have an appreciation of the sensitivities of working in the public sector – this could be through working for public sector clients, or having previous experience working in the public sector.
The role is based at the head office in Glasgow, however, with a number of sites and facilities around Scotland, there will be an element of travel involved.
This opportunity would suit a commercial lawyer already in house or in the public sector, as well as someone looking to make their first move in-house from practice. In addition, it may suit a candidate looking to make the move from handling contentious to non-contentious matters.
It is anticipated that given the nature of the role and experience required, the successful candidate will have a minimum of 5 years’ experience.
If this in-house commercial solicitor role sounds like it could be of interest, please get in touch for a confidential and no obligation discussion.
Alternatively, if this opportunity is not quite right for you, we have a strong variety of opportunities across the central belt, Dundee and Aberdeen - so please get in touch and update me as to your job search criteria.
