This growing, nationally renowned professional services organisation is looking to hire a senior in-house lawyer to join the highly regarded team to support their growth strategy both UK and internationally.

The senior in-house lawyer role is varied and challenging with a mix of BAU commercial contract activities and more complex, project based initiatives. The team is well-oiled with plenty of support and time is spent on prioritisation with a slick process so you will never feel isolated or unable to manage your time.

The role may well include the following areas, however can be shaped a little around the candidate's technical background and preferences.

- Commercial agreements and contracts including procurement, sales, marketing, IT outsourcing

- Corporate activity

- Compliance / DP

- Other ad-hoc legal projects

We are ideally looking for a commercial lawyer who can help manage and coach a team of 5 and work closely with the Head of Legal in terms of the running of the legal team.

Ideally you will have in-house commercial contracts experience (possibly even via secondment) and enjoy the variety that brings, possibly in a regulated industry with 5+ years PQE and some management/coaching experience. There is no upper level of experience so if you are a more experienced lawyer looking for something a little different, keen to talk.

There is complete agile working, with hubs dotted around the UK although the majority of stakeholders will be Birmingham based, so as long as you can get to the office as and when for occasional meetings, then a wider location/home working is perfect.

Work can also fit in with your lifestyle, with no core hours - so if ts the school run each day, trips to the gym, walking the dog, or other hobbies there is always time in your day for a balance.

The team is highly proactive, led by a passionate Head of Legal and excellent coach. There is complete trust and an adult environment without the politics. You will be supported in your career and be given the platform to demonstrate your abilities.

Obviously we are looking for pragmatic, commercially aware lawyers who enjoy building relationships and influencing stakeholders.

Salary on offer 65-70k basic plus benefits.
