In-House Legal Counsel - Volaris

Location: Birmingham & West Midlands
Experience: 5-7 Years, 8 Years +
Specialism: Commercial/IP, In-House
Date Posted: August 23, 2021
Job ID: 2514
Employment Type: Permanent
Volaris Group (a group which acquires and grows software companies in various industry sectors) acquired SSP Limited this year, and a replacement role has arisen in its in-house legal team. SSP is the leading global supplier of technology systems and software for the insurance industry and this is a legal counsel role to be responsible for this sector, and sits within the large global in-house legal team at Volaris.

This role is to be based out of the SSP office in Solihull, although flexible working between home and the office is welcomed and encouraged, as long as you are able to attend at the company HQ when required. 

This role is likely to be most suitable to an experienced solicitor with at least 5 years' PQE, most likely more towards 7-8 years', and commercial contracts and specifically software experience is what this company will find most interesting in a potential candidate. Insurance sector experience is welcomed although by no means necessary. 

Salary is likely to be up to circa £80,000 and this is a position which could operate on a full time or part time basis. A candidate who likes to work in a mature and collaborative way with the team would be an ideal fit. 

The specific work will include lots of varied commercial contracts, e.g. SaaS agreements, insurance specific contracts, master services agreements, supplier agreements and NDAs. Other more generalist in-house legal work will also flow into your broad role here, however commercial is the key skill set. 

This is a fast moving company and you will need to be excited by this, and able to adapt to a changing workload in time. 

Please contact Adam Zdravkovic at Think Legal confidentially for further details on this opportunity.
