New exciting in-house role


Our client is a dynamic, large company offering a diverse and interesting in-house legal role. With a positive outlook, this role will appeal to a capable commercial / corporate lawyer who is ready to join a thriving business and a small, friendly and dynamic top tier legal team. A truly broad and commercially based role, this will encourage an in-house counsel to play a key role in the business. Excellent culture and environment.


Enjoying good support, this role itself is broad and will provide substantial responsibility and opportunity. You will work closely with the General Counsel (ex top-tier) in a small team. You will have plenty of interaction with GMs and Corporate Managers throughout the business. You will assist with the legal function and become involved in significant legal matters for the business, including general commercial, corporate/mergers & acquisitions, due diligence, property/leasing, projects, litigation, and insurance. Also work on significant contracts, risk mitigation, and compliance. A good drafter with negotiation skills is required. You should be able to manage processes and be a good people person – have high EQ.

To take on this position you will be at least 4 years PQE and up to about 9 PQE, and be a front-end commercial lawyer. Training in a well regarded firm or in-house will be important, and the ability to get on well with people from a range of backgrounds will assist in your success. You should be commercially-minded rather than just a black-letter lawyer.


While this role will pay well, the real benefit of this role is the rare opportunity to assist with being a legal advisor in a pro-active, positive iconic company making further headway in the market. While there are established systems and support in place, you will be able to make your mark.
