Full Time
A newly created opportunity has arisen for an experienced lawyer to join this innovative and entrepreneurial business with global activities in the pharma and healthcare sector.

With its origins as a leader in community pharmacy the group's activities have evolved significantly to include expertise in the research, development and licensing of new products as well as managing the manufacture, release, distribution and sales of products worldwide.

Working closely with the CEO and other Directors the role will involve the provision of effective legal support to the management team. Balancing an awareness of legal risk with an appreciation for the commercial needs of the business you will be able to demonstrate pragmatic thinking and have the ability to advise on possible risks whilst recommending solutions that are viable in a practical / business context.

As well as providing strategic advice to the board, you will also serve as an escalation point for all legal questions relating to the Group's businesses.

The role will involve dealing with the following:
  • Intellectual property and licensing matters
  • Drafting, negotiating and advising on a wide range of commercial agreements including manufacturing, distribution and supply
  • Regulatory compliance and risk management
  • GDPR strategy and compliance
  • HR and employment issues
  • Property investment portfolio
  • Prior knowledge of the pharma / healthcare sector would be advantageous but not essential

It is likely that you will have in excess of 5 years pqe gained in a commercial / in-house environment. In addition to strong legal technical ability, you will be pro-active and commercially minded, with pragmatic problem solving skills.

For further information on this and other exciting opportunities, or to discuss your situation in complete confidence, please contact Richard Betts at Bygott Biggs.

At Bygott Biggs our aim has always been to provide a more personal service and everyone here believes that recruitment should be about building long-term relationships with clients and candidates alike. Our reputation has been built on the fact that we provide an efficient and professional service but are not afraid to give straight forward, straight talking advice.

The above PQE is expressed as a guideline only. We are happy to hear from anyone who can demonstrate the necessary skills and knowledge in order to fulfil this role.
