An excellent opportunity has arisen for a Technical Contract Consultant to join an international legal consultancy for an immediate secondment to one of their clients within telecoms.

The role will focus on building custom analytic policies for the consultancy’s contract management software.

These custom analytic policies are created by providing the contract management software with sample language for the system to ‘learn’ the type of information it’s being asked to find. It takes a number of iterations and samples to provide the software with enough information in order to precisely extract the relevant information.

On a day-to-day basis the Contract Consultant will work closely with the consultancy’s client in creating policies to analyse complex contracts and agreements.

This role will also include project management and acting as an ambassador for the software within the company.

The successful Technical Contract Consultant will have an in-depth understanding of contract provisions and their functions from both a legal and business perspective. Building the custom analytic policies requires a solid understanding of contract provisions, obligations and SLAs, it also requires a genuine interest in technology and the ability to focus on the nuances of contracts in order to meet clients’ expectations.

The suitable candidate must have detailed experience with contract management software, such as Selectica, Ariba, Emptoris, Apptus, SpringCM, Seal, Exari, Ivalua and Contract Logix.

The successful Contract Consultant will be a senior paralegal who is educated to LLB/GDL level as a minimum but likely not a qualified Lawyer.

Personality-wise this role would suit someone outgoing because there will be a significant amount of client interaction. As such the ideal Contract Consultant will have prior experience of working independently in a client-facing position.

This is a great opportunity to join a leading legal consultancy as they expand into the UK.
