Senior In-House Legal Counsel

My client in Manchester is seeking a solicitor for an important position, senior in-house legal counsel, at a crucial point in their growth plan. The successful candidate will be responsible for the legal aspects of this interesting business, which for starters will mainly be a variety of commercial contracts, plus some compliance work, company secretarial duties, and a variety of ad hoc legal advice across the company.

The right person for this opportunity will be happy to pick up work on a number of key commercial contracts for products and services on day 1, so ideally the legal counsel will have worked as a solicitor in-house or in private practice for a number of years and be confident in their abilities to run from the start.

Alongside excellent technical legal ability, this person should be adaptable, approachable, and able to build relationships with key people across the group quickly, most likely by presenting legal advice in a speedy, easy to digest and commercial manner with an eye on risk factors. Part of the role will involve management of a recently qualified commercial lawyer.

This company prides itself on being a great place to work, and personality will be key for them - the new person needs to be able to slot nicely into the family. A very decent plan for career progression will be put in place for the right individual - they would like to find someone who can start positively and develop with them as the business continues to develop.

This is a full time role. Salary is dependent on experience and likely to be in the region of £55,000. It comes with a good range of benefits.

For further details on this unique opportunity, a full job specification and/or an in depth conversation about it, please contact Adam Zdravkovic at Search Consultancy.

Search is an equal opportunities recruiter and we welcome applications from all suitably skilled or qualified applicants, regardless of their race, sex, disability, religion/beliefs, sexual orientation or age
