Legal Counsel role with a major UK FMCG business
A game-changing in-house role with this leading brand and genuine household name.
You will be working as part of an established, hugely supportive, authentic, legal team headed up by an empathetic GC who genuinely nurtures and develops talent. The team have a great reputation internally across the leadership teams.
There is a proactive, business partner model in place and you will join a team supporting two of their high profile and most varied divisions, giving you a real breadth to your work and allowing you to be seen as a value add, commercial advisor.
The ideal candidate will have 1-4 years+ PQE gained either in practice or in-house and be a committed team player, interested in business, naturally inquisitive and keen to roll up their sleeves.
Team fit is number 1, and as I have worked with them for 5 years I will be able to give you a real sense of what this means.
Although a commercial contracts background would be the preference - particularly if you have experience in FMCG, retail, transportation or logistics, we are more open minded on technical background if you have the necessary drive and passion for working in-house. Happy to receive applications from commercial litigators or corporate lawyers with the right drivers, particularly if you have had exposure to previous in-house work.
Location is really flexible, HQ is North West/North Mids border and you only really have to come together as a team once or twice a week max (and its a pleasant drive against the traffic). There is also a site near Warrington which is useful for those based in the Manchester area.
Could easily work from Manchester, Cheshire, Crewe, Staffordshire, Birmingham, West Midlands or further a field if you only wanted to travel 1 day a week.
Salary is c.60-65k plus car allowance, bonus and other perks and although lots to crack on with there is certainly a good work/life balance
