Your new company
A true global leader in technology, media and electronics and one of the most famous brands in the world. The company has its European HQ in Surrey, and operates a hybrid working system. The environment is innovative and cutting edge, with fantastic resources and high expectations to keep pushing technological boundaries.

Your new role
A Legal Counsel position reporting into the Head of Legal within a team of 14 legal professionals. This ad-tech and media focused position will entail working closely with advertising, marketing and innovation teams. You will be involved in negotiating an exciting range of commercial agreements, pertaining to the company's media, broadcasting, app-development and ad-tech activities. You will need to understand and mitigate legal and regulatory risk, while negotiating the likes of SaaS, PaaS, data processing, software services and digital marketing agreements. You will support the business as it continues its services expansion in new markets, providing commercial, risk, data privacy and intellectual property expertise as you go.

What you'll need to succeed
You will be a UK or Commonwealth qualified lawyer with at least 3-4 PQE (as a guide), and demonstrable experience in digital technology, media and/or ad tech matters. In-house experience is greatly welcomed, particularly if it is in a fast-paced technology driven, digital/media environment. The ability to manage stakeholders at different levels is important. A passion for all things digital and media will go a long way to establishing cultural fit, as would an understanding of Asian business etiquette. There is a flexible approach to the hybrid working pattern to enable work-life balance while maintaining a high-performance culture.

What you'll get in return
You will be joining one of the world's most celebrated technology and media businesses in an influential role, in a respected legal function. You will be exposed to an exceptional quality and variety of work, geared towards media, technology and ad-tech matters. You will be rewarded with a great salary and target bonus package, with a great benefits package including an enhanced pension and family private medical cover. You will be joining a business whose track record as to hybrid-working and employee satisfaction is ahead of the curve.
