In-House Contracts Lawyer
As a member of the in-house legal team you will be working on projects which are shaping the way the Group does business and which will have an impact on the way we work as lawyers.
The work will be contract based commercial law, helping to review, draft and negotiate a wide range of business critical agreements in areas such as IT, outsourcing and client services, research and preparing advice. You will be working on tools for contract hub products, training materials and guidance to share ‘best of kind’ documents with the wider firm and help to record and monitor the large and varied range of contractual arrangements across the group. You will also help manage ‘outsourcing’ of other legal work to expert advisers and to help manage trainee solicitors in the team.
The skills needed for the in-house contracts lawyer role are likely to have been developed in a commercial law environment although we will also consider experience working in a corporate or litigation team or as a practice support lawyer in one of these areas or worked in a similar regulated business. You must be an exceptional communicator as you will be dealing with clients, who are also your colleagues; investing in and developing these working relationships to ensure there is an awareness of the in-house team’s capabilities across the business.
You will be commercially minded, drawing upon your previous experience to challenge the business in a tactful and professional manner in order to drive continuous improvement. You will have a degree in Law or a business related subject or relevant post graduate qualification as well as previous experience of working in a professional services environment.
If you have a positive, ‘can-do’ attitude and are looking for a new challenge, we would be interested in hearing from you.
