Kubrick has, in a short period of time, established itself as a well-known and trusted brand within the data world that helps some of the biggest financial and retail organisations in the world leverage data to make an impact.

We are now entering an accelerated period of growth and therefore are increasing the number of top tier financial services and retail clients we work with. This growth increases our commercial risk exposure and demands and because of this, we are looking for a sharp, agile and organised In-House Legal Counsel to join our team to direct and drive the business forward.

This is an opportunity to work with a very unique company which is rapidly growing in the data space. If you have 3-5 years PQE and are looking to come in-house or are a senior associate looking for very flexible working, we would love to hear from you.

In this role you will:

  • Run a contract re-negotiation project over approx. 12 months to ensure client contract compliance with the company's risk framework
  • Own the legal risk framework and be responsible for the internal contract scoring process and output feeding into the company's overall client scoring mechanism for growth
  • Be responsible for client experience during legal negotiations and internal client onboarding
  • Oversee SOWs and extensions produced by the junior contract manager
  • Build a compliance strategy in line Kubrick's growth plans
  • Plan, initiate and oversee complete GDPR adaptation and compliance throughout the business
  • Manage employment disputes.

What we need from you:

  • Excellent relationship management skills
  • The ability to influence and challenge where necessary
  • Consistent delivery of high-quality work across a wide variety of projects
  • Effective prioritisation
  • The ability to work both autonomously and collaboratively
  • An interest in the data industry is preferred but not necessary.

Who you are:
  • 3-5 years PQE in either commercial or business law, ready for a new challenge to take on a more flexible, broader role in-house.
  • Enterprising by nature and can hit the ground running on a wide range of work
  • Someone who is comfortable re-drafting and negotiating complex, financial services contracts as well as dealing with other in-house legal queries including employment law
  • Interested in or have experience with the GDPR.

Flexibility:

We have had great success in offering very flexible working to help our employees to achieve a healthy work/life balance. Therefore, in this role flexible and/or part time working is available, please let us know what you are looking for at interview stage.

What you'll get from us:
  • Excellent flexibility during the working week
  • A collaborative, supportive working environment
  • To be part of an exciting team and story
  • A strong sense of community
  • A competitive salary of £60-£80,000 dependent on experience.
