Job: Commercial Solicitor – In-house
Our global client is looking for a Commercial Lawyer to join their busy in-house legal department. This position offers a variety (both in nature and international scope) of interesting work.
Remote Working Opportunity - The head office is based in London and they would consider candidates who can come into the office one day a week. If candidates wanted to work in the office more that too is possible.
The ideal candidate will:
- Be a UK qualified solicitor with strong academics who has trained at a reputable law firm
- Have experience in drafting and negotiating commercial contracts and agreements
- Be able to assist the department on a wide range of other legal matters including (but not limited to) intellectual property, licensing and data protection
- Have excellent communication and interpersonal skills and a commercial / business outlook to their work
It would be useful if candidates had experience of working with technology, software or SaaS contracts but this is not essential. The client is willing to train and develop the successful employee in this area.
In-house experience would be desirable, but the client would consider a private practice lawyer looking to move in-house who could point to good business and commercial skills.
Our client envisages that candidates between newly qualified - 4 years PQE will have the relevant skills / knowledge for this position, however this has been given as an approximate guide for applicants and our client is happy to consider the applications of candidates who fall outside of this PQE range but who have the relevant experience.
