Legal Assistant/Paralegal - Global Brand
Our client, a global brand that’s synonymous with championing consumers and disrupting businesses, is currently searching for a Legal Assistant/Paralegal who’s looking for a highly visible role in a legal team operating at the heart of the business.
Whilst the brand is known the world over, the role is within a new part of the business so you’ll have the chance to play a part in building something almost from the ground up. So whilst technical experience might get you through the door, to really thrive in this role you’ll need to be comfortable with ambiguity, have high energy, be self-motivated, and be delivery focused.
Areas of responsibility include, but are not limited to: working closely with the Head of Legal to build the legal function; taking a leading role in managing day to day administration, structure and allocation of work within the department; providing proactive and commercial legal support to all parts of the business; and assisting with the company secretarial function.
Much more information will be made available upon request by suitable candidates.
The successful candidate will have a strong academic record, ideally including in the LPC*; previous paralegal experience in a commercial context, preferably with a large multi-national brand/organisation; strong commercial awareness; meticulous attention to detail; a collaborative working style and the ability to develop working relationships with a wide range of stakeholders; and a sense of humour!
*NB: experience levels are offered as a guide only. Our client will accept applications from all candidates who can demonstrate the skills necessary for the role.
Interested candidates should send their CV to Nick Wasserman for consideration. All successful candidates will be contacted within 5 working days of application. Due to the high volume of applications we receive, though, we are not always able to respond directly to everyone, but we will try our very best.
