Global business with over 400 offices and in excess of 20,000 employees, have a vacancy for a Legal Counsel. This is a 9 month contract, based in Central London.
About the Role
Working within a collegiate legal team, the Legal Counsel will enjoy a broad remit including:
- Drafting and negotiating commercial agreements relating to customers, IT, supply, tenders, consultancy and procurement.
- Assisting with M&A matters
- Providing commercially-focused legal advice to all departments of the business, across a range of international territories
- Managing relationships with external counsel
The Legal Counsel role requires an individual with a track record of successfully drafting and negotiating commercial contracts. You will have trained at a well-regarded law firm and any time spent in-house, would be viewed as advantageous but not essential. The client believes that at least four years PQE would be required to undertake the duties associated with the role, but all applications will be considered on merit. Lawyers qualified in other Commonwealth jurisdictions are also encouraged to apply.
The position requires a mid-January start but the intention is to have the interview process concluded well before the end of the year. But candidates on up to one month’s notice in the current role are able to apply.
This job presents an opportunity for somebody to develop their legal and commercial skills, in a positive and enjoyable environment, working for a globally-recognised brand.
