An exciting opportunity has arisen for an ambitious senior commercial legal counsel with broad contract experience to join a FTSE 250 to cover a 6 month maternity leave, commencing in September 2019.

Reporting directly to the Group Head of Legal, you will support all commercial and e-commerce functions across the business and work closely with the team to provide legal and commercial advice and solutions at all levels, whilst also ensuring that the Group is properly protected in its relationship with third parties.

This is a broad commercial role and will include reviewing national and global customer and supplier contracts, and negotiating a broad range of agreements including IT and Technology procurement, distribution agreements, supply and distribution of goods and services, and ecommerce compliance. This is a highly commercial role in a fast-paced and dynamic environment.

You must have trained in a top tier law firm and have qualified in to the corporate or commercial team. You will require a broad technical knowledge of commercial legal issues and experience of multi-national legal issues. In-house legal experience is advantageous as is exposure to the retail or manufacturing industry. This would ideally suit someone with upwards of 4 years experience.
