Joining an sizeable legal team, you will undertake a diverse and interesting role, drafting, negotiating and advising on a range of B2B and B2C contracts. These might be high value and complex (bespoke commercial agreements such as negotiating and advising on complex and high value supplier contracts, IT and software agreements, distribution agreements and service contracts), or more run of the mill work on lower value terms and conditions, or NDA's. In short, an interesting and varied in house role, where no two days are the same. You'll work within the larger legal team and alongside other commercial lawyers, so you'll benefit from support and guidance, but be encouraged to take on complex work where appropriate.

This is an opportunity to move to an interesting and growing business and take on a diverse in house counsel interesting legal role.
