Our client is looking for an In-house Legal Counsel to come in and join their highly successful, multinational company based in Chertsey.

The key to the role will be dealing with the day to day legal matters faced by the business. A candidate with a strong career background to date with skills and experience in company commercial law is required.

The successful candidate will be dealing with a wide range of legal issues including:

The successful candidate will have a good understanding of contract and commercial law, coupled with strong drafting, negotiation and communication skills (both written and verbal). This is an important recruit for the organisation and will offer the opportunity to progress your career far more than equivalent roles at this PQE level.
