IN-HOUSE LEGAL COUNSEL 3+ PQE
12 TO 15 MONTH FIXED TERM CONTRACT
LEEDS (REMOTE WORKING INITIALLY)
UP TO £45,000 FTE PLUS CAR ALLOWANCE, BONUS & BENEFITS
We are keen to speak to commercial contracts and/or corporate lawyers who are available to join this in-house legal team on a fixed term contract. It is anticipated that the contract will last for at least 12 months, possibly longer, and that there will be a period of handover. The role can be performed on either a full or part-time basis.
The business is a leader in its field, with a client base that includes household names and some of the country’s largest organisations.
You should have around 3 – 4 years’ experience as a commercial contracts or corporate lawyer and will be slotting into a very friendly and busy team. It would be an advantage if you had previous in-house legal experience, although this is not crucial.
The role will involve you drafting, reviewing and negotiating a range of supplier and outsourcing agreements (B2B and B2C) as well as attending to some company secretarial, IT, data protection and commercial property matters affecting the business and its operations. You may also need to provide regulatory and compliance advice on regulated products, Treating Customers Fairly and promotional materials. The team makes use of external legal counsel where necessary.
The contract is expected to commence in around December 2020 or January 2021. Although you would officially work from impressive offices in Leeds with excellent transport links, you will need to work remotely at first due to current pandemic-related restrictions. You will be provided with hardware and IT support as well as a company phone.
Any PQE levels referred to in our adverts are shown purely as an indication and do not preclude those candidates with more or less PQE from applying.
