Within the ever advancing world of AI, one of the key strategies of this business is to further develop their presence across EMEA territories, with that in mind they are keen to speak with an experienced Legal Counsel willing to take up a 12 month, maternity cover role.

Working with the sales team on global projects, you will be a commercial focused lawyer willing to act quickly and efficiently to secure new business across their European markets.


You will be part of a multi-national global legal team in an exciting, innovative and dynamic environment.

Working with the sales and commercial team, you will negotiate a diverse range of complex software and professional services agreements.

As they are hoping for a smooth transition period that will include a handover period, you will take the reins in leading in these negotiations and be trusted to make decisions with very little support once you have integrated yourself into the team.

Although your stakeholders will be technically focused and have a great understanding of the projects they are involved in, you will still need to be able to deconstruct the terminology and present updates in "plain English" to them and other stakeholders in the business. You may want to review existing agreements and documentation if you are able to add value there too.

To be considered for the role, you will need to be a qualified Solicitor with a minimum of 5 years post qualified experience with a strong record of working with commercial and sales teams.

Experience of negotiating on large Government contracts, especially within the Health Care sector and/or NHS would be advantageous.

Do get in touch should you wish to discuss the role further.
