Whilst the role is a Sole Counsel position, the focus intially will be predominantly on commercial contracts with the organisations clients, that sit largely in the financial services sector. For example, some of the responsibilities include:
- managing the commercial contracts process end-to-end;
- effectively managing the contract database of the organisation, ensuring contracts are extended and/or re-negotiated effectively;
- supporting the client team on contractual/general legal issues in their negotiations.
Over time, the role will offer an opportunity to build out responsibility and make the role your own. This is therefore a great opportunity for somebody looking to take a step up in responsibility.
In order to be successful, you will therefore need to be able to demonstrate the following:
- UK qualification as a lawyer;
- Solid experience in contract negotiation end-to-end;
- A willingness to take on responsibility and take a pro-active approach to work.
