In-house Legal Counsel role with an ambitious, Birmingham based employer with a genuine sense of community and social purpose.
We are currently working with a growing Birmingham brand looking to hire an in-house lawyer reporting directly to the Head of Legal, Risk & Compliance.
The legal function is still relatively new so there is genuine variety on offer and the ability to truly influence and drive change.
The role requires ideally a mid-level lawyer (3+ years PQE) who is comfortable handling BAU matters, supporting on major strategic projects and who has the necessary gravitas to build internal relationship.
The role is a true in-house varied role so will incorporate the following areas
- Commercial Contracts (sales, procurement, software, technology, T&C's)
- Risk management and compliance issues (AML, GDPR)
- Corporate Insurance
- Company Secretarial matters
Culturally the business is nimble, forward thinking with realistic growth plans. You will be joining a business with a real sense of purpose where you can build and develop you in-house career.
The ideal candidate will have either a commercial contracts, corporate or banking background gained either in-house or in practice. However we are open on most commercial disciplines should you have the ambition to move in-house. Appetite for variety, a strong relationship builder and a natural problem solver are all perhaps more important.
The role is based in Birmingham city centre, however with a blended approach to WFH moving forward.
Really keen to bring this opportunity to life for you so please do get in touch for more information.
