Corporate Solicitor (NQ-2 PQE)

Save job

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Corporate Solicitor to join a fast-growing business services platform that champions small and medium businesses across the UK and Ireland. This role offers a unique chance to be part of an ambitious team at the early stages of its journey, helping to define and grow an industry-leading private practice proposition for SMEs. The successful candidate will be based in Manchester, working on a hybrid basis, supporting one of the strongest SME corporate finance teams nationally with client-centric, corporate law advice.

What sets this company apart:

This company offers the opportunity to be an early hire in what will become a top 15 professional services firm in the UK. The successful candidate will have the chance to define and build a practice that delivers legal services to SME clients in a way they believe they should be delivered. The company has a flexible working policy and offers a competitive benefits package, including funding for individual learning and development. It provides an environment to grow and create your own career opportunities.

What you'll do:

As a Corporate Solicitor, you will play a pivotal role in guiding SME businesses through the delivery of pragmatic and fit-for-purpose corporate legal advice. You will work closely with clients to understand their business objectives, providing legal advice on a range of corporate matters. Your responsibilities will also include drafting, reviewing, and negotiating a wide range of corporate documents. In addition, you will collaborate with accountancy partners within the group to provide high-quality and joined-up client service. This is an exceptional opportunity for a technically proficient yet entrepreneurial solicitor who is motivated by building relationships and delivering exceptional client outcomes.

What you bring:

The ideal candidate for this Corporate Solicitor role is NQ-2 PQE. You should have the ability to deliver outstanding client work autonomously while building a department. A desire to build out non-legal competencies across marketing, business development, compliance and legal operations is essential. You should also have a flexible, proactive and opportunistic attitude towards building relationships. A growth mindset motivated by an alternative career path that involves developing a business is also key.
