In house Commercial Solicitor 1-5 years PQE - Cheshire

There is a lot to cover here so lets start with the basics. The role arises at a leading Plc with their headquarters based in South Manchester.

The current legal team is small comprising around 3 people with a varying degree of experience across a fairly diverse range of disciplines to compliment the requirements of the business.

The role itself arises for someone to come in and deal with a quite  broad profile of work to handle aspects of contract management working alongside IT, marketing and data security teams as well as assisting in the conclusion of a business wide GDPR project.

Ideally you will have non-contentious commercial experience from anywhere from 1 year PQE upwards.

IT contracts are a mainstay and there is some interesting project work ongoing on the GDPR side. Essentially you would be "Support for the support departments" and so the role will be interesting, requiring someone bright, interested in a fast paced environment in an ever changing landscape.  .

At its heart there is a strong element of project management in order to maximise and productively engage with external lawyers on a range of areas. Additionally the team proactively engage with internal stakeholders on general data protection matters as well as wider regulatory and compliance aspects, often with a lean towards the consumer side.

The ability to communicate at all levels from shop floor to customer to key stakeholders is essential so you will need to have a level of patience and robustness balanced with a real desire to help. Equally you will need to be able to distil key issues and get to the heart of matters.

The business and the legal team are incredibly helpful and friendly and you will have support throughout in terms of learning any new areas as well as getting to grips with the intricacies of the business.

As a result the skill set for this role is more of a broad commercial contracts piece in a varied and challenging environment. The role is currently on a 12 month fixed term contract basis.

If you feel that the role could be something of interest and represent a fantastic first move in house to set you on that path then please send your CV to Paul Warburton for consideration.
