In House Commercial Paralegal

Our client is a large listed company with a significant breadth and portfolio of work.

Its legal team is in its infancy but has already integrated substantially with the businesses core activities. 

The size of the team means that the legal function is still evolving which is both a positive and negative. On the positive side there is significant scope for the role to expand and the work is consequently varied and challenging. On the downside, it means that the processes for delivery are ever changing. All that requires is an adaptive and positive mindset as well as strong cultural fit. 

Indeed cultural fit is critical. The head of legal embodies the team approach to things. They are open, honest and roll their sleeves up to get the job done. Attitude is just as important as aptitude.

In terms of the work, it truly is a range from general commercial agreements such as outsourcing, supply, concession agreements as well as wider procurement and regulatory element to compliment other service lines in the business to general real estate on the leasing side in the main. 

They are looking for a paralegal to assist the team on general commercial matters whilst they transition in additional junior members into the team so you would be provided administrative and technical support to the head of legal across a range of areas.

The role has been signed off as a 6 month fixed term contract. There may be the option for the role to go permanent but at this stage it is not possible to say.

The role is based in South Liverpool.

You will need to have good academics, have a desire to work in a commercial area and above all an attitude and willingness to get stuck in and learn.

Send your CV to us for consideration.
