In House Commercial Contracts Lawyer

Central London

Competitive + Benefits 

This is an ideal opportunity if you enjoy working in a small team, in a fast-paced, business environment where no two days are the same. We are currently seeking an experienced commercial contracts lawyer to join the legal team. In a very hands-on and proactive role, you will be working closely with the business units (both at central and local level) and their key suppliers of services.

Reporting to the General Counsel, you will be involved in advising on, reviewing and negotiating a wide range of contracts (including supply, purchase, agency, tour operator, booking agreements) and managing the conduct of claims and disputes.  Experience of intellectual property rights and a good understanding of IT service agreements (both software and hardware), consumer/competition law, e-commerce and sales & marketing issues are highly relevant to the role.

You should be able to work confidently and proactively, in a team and independently, lead negotiations and approach your work with diligence and attention to detail. This is an excellent opportunity to be a vital part of a friendly in-house legal team with exposure to all levels within the organisation and a broad, interesting, challenging and commercially-orientated range of work.

Location: Central Support Office, London, near Barbican and Old Street tube stations.


The ideal candidate will have 4-5 years PQE with an in-house background in the UK (this is simply a guide and all candidates with the requisite abilities will be considered, including those wishing to return to the workplace after a break, the role is offered on a full time basis, but we would also be very open to discussing part time or flexible working arrangements).


  •  Experienced commercial lawyer.
  • Experience of working in-house, fully embedded with the business units (Sales & Marketing, IT, Procurement, E-commerce), with the ability to build and maintain strong relationships across the business.
  • Background in commercial contracts, with strong negotiation and drafting skills.
  • Ability to identify legal risks and propose solutions to mitigate them.
  • A willingness to develop the skills required to assist in other areas of work, if and when required.
  • The ability to work to tight deadlines and under pressure, when required.
  • A positive attitude, with excellent verbal and written communication skills.
  • Accustomed to using initiative and acting autonomously.
  • Strong academics.
  • UK Qualification is an advantage.
  • Candidate must be eligble to work in the UK.

A background in leisure or hospitality would be an advantage but is not essential. Candidates from private practice, having worked in-house on secondment, will also be considered.

Compensation: Competitive.
