They are currently seeking an in-house solicitor to join their legal team; this role is based in Swindon however the team work very flexibly, doing 1–2 days per week in the office. They are happy to consider candidates working either full-time or part-time (4 or 5 days per week).
Your new role
Working closely with the General Counsel, you will coordinate and help ensure that the Legal function delivers ‘best in class' service to the Group, with specific responsibility for day-to-day legal matters across the various functions within the Group and with particular emphasis on commercial law, contract drafting/negotiation and contract management, thereby ensuring that the Group remains legally compliant and that commercial and regulatory risk is mitigated effectively.

You will manage external advisors on discreet matters, support with the monitoring and communication of legal updates/training across the Group and advocate best practice and assist with drafting trading and internal company policies and deal with compliance/enforcement issues.
About you
