Legal Manager FTC (8 Months)

Servelec? A gem of a company that not many people have heard of. Which is a massive shame because the chances are that you or someone you love will have been positively impacted by our software and leading tech. You just didn't know it - until now.

Most also hadn't heard our market leading software is the foundation that allows medical clinicians to spend more time with their patients, driving up standards in our beloved NHS. It streamlines services within our education sector, gives more time to social workers within their communities, and enables youth workers to work their magic with future generations.

We make powerful changes in the things that matter. It's down to two things: our people and our technology.

This is no ordinary legal role. You'll provide legal support to colleagues in various roles (such as project managers, software support leads and sales directors) but your bread and butter will be the foundations (contracts) of what our customers buy. Pretty important stuff especially given how impactful our products are. .

Reviewing, negotiating, and drafting IT/Software contracts is the majority of this world so a deep understanding of this is essential. Either from private practice or industry it doesn't matter to us.

You're either bored of wearing a suit, a constant focus on how much time you've billed, frustrated with advising from afar (without being empowered to take decisions) or just tired of working only with, well, other lawyers. That's not us. You'll be part of a small, supportive legal team but with responsibility and influence over one of our key businesses that you'll get to know inside out. You'll interact directly with the sales teams and everyone else involved in getting the contracts over the line and you'll feel like you're making a positive difference (both to the company and beyond). Real people working collaboratively for one common goal.

We're not saying it's always rosy. It's fast paced, we're growing and we're growing fast. Due to our rapid growth, our sales team can be a bit time hungry but you'll also know that growth creates opportunities (and we're a group with an admirable record of developing people). So if you like taking a pragmatic, initiative approach and taking control then you'll fit in just fine.

We know it's a FTC and that's not ideal but for the right candidate there's a possibility it could go perm.

On top of your basic salary and the opportunity to help shape a vibrant, growing business, there's a company bonus scheme, 25 days holiday plus bank holidays, an attractive pension, life cover, employee referral bonuses and more.

Servelec is an equal opportunities employer and welcomes applications from all sections of society. We do not discriminate on grounds of race, religion or belief, ethnic or national origin, disability, age, citizenship, marital, domestic or civil partnership status, sexual orientation, or gender identity.
