Our client is a leading digital services business providing bespoke and unified technology, operational, brand and marketing services to household name clients across the UK, Europe, Australasia and beyond.
A genuine success story that is experiencing rapid growth and an ever-increasing interest in its services, our client has a need for an additional Legal Counsel to join it's established and high-calibre legal team in Manchester.
If you are interested in working for an expanding and innovative business, operating within and alongside a larger and equally successful Group, this opportunity is well worth your consideration.
Role - Legal Counsel / Commercial/IT Solicitor
Working alongside two experienced members of the legal department, as Legal Counsel you will also be exposed to the same varied, bespoke and interesting commercial contracts undertaken by the existing team members. You will enjoy a high-degree of autonomy and responsibility, and you will have enhanced access to, and interaction with, customers and senior stakeholders and decision makers within the company.
Although our client provides digital and technology solutions as part of its product offering, this role is not solely focused on technology contracts. It can be best described as a mixed commercial role with a focus on technology. Thus, individuals applying for this role could come from a pure commercial and/or technology/software background.
Specific duties are likely to include: bespoke contract negotiation and drafting, including major outsourcing arrangements; varied commercial advice to senor stakeholders and sales teams; liaising with and instructing external solicitors and advisors, particularly overseas; dealing with multiple territories and jurisdictions; assisting with projects and ad hoc matters; and working on wider Group commercial requirements as required.
This role is well suited to a Solicitor with a keen interest in tech combined with a varied general commercial contracts background. You are likely to have 1-4 years' PQE, although those with more/less will be considered, and existing in-house experience is beneficial but not a prerequisite.
What's on offer?
This role presents a superb opportunity for a junior/mid level commercial and/or IT solicitor to join a well regarded, established and experienced in-house legal department, whilst also enjoying a high-degree of autonomy, responsibility and access to key stakeholders. The company itself is doing incredibly well and there is definite scope for growth, progression and personal development.
Our client is offering a competitive Manchester salary plus a generous bonus scheme and package for this position. Equity is also a distinct possibility in time.
