International FMCG company based in the northern home counties are looking to hire a Legal Counsel. Whilst initially a contract for 3-6 months, there is a high probability that this could lead to a permanent role for the right candidate.
About the Role
Working in a collegiate legal team, the Legal Counsel will be given the opportunity to get involved in a broad range of work including:
- Reviewing and advising on marketing campaign material and sponsorship agreements
- Drafting and negotiating supply, distribution, procurement and client contracts
- Providing commercially-focused legal advice to a variety of teams across the organisation including marketing, sales and procurement
- Getting involved in ad-hoc matters relating to data protection, employment and corporate law
This Legal Counsel role requires a qualified lawyer with experience of drafting and negotiating commercial agreements. Whilst some previous in-house experience would be viewed as advantageous, individuals coming straight from private practice are also encouraged to apply. The client believes that the work would be best suited to a candidate with at least 1 year PQE but applications from all levels will be considered on merit.
This role is for an immediate start, so candidates on a notice period in another role cannot be considered.
