Commercial Lawyer – Government Legal Department (DfT)



Fast track your career.

The Government Legal Department (GLD) is a place to practise like no other. As the largest provider of legal services across government, we work across unique and high profile cases of unrivalled variety. From roads to rivers, and health to human rights, our work touches on most aspects of public life. This is your chance to make a lasting difference as you act in the public good.

Our highly motivated and dynamic lawyers provide support to the Department for Transport’s (DfT) Rail and High Speed Rail Groups. The work is often high-profile with significant media and political interest, and projects include High Speed 2, Crossrail, the InterCity Express programme delivering the next generation of intercity trains, and the rail refranchising programme. You will be directly involved in planning and delivering the railway of the future.

To thrive in our dynamic political environment, you’ll need to be proactive, adaptable and creatively minded. Given the nature of the Government’s rail programme, we’re particularly interested in hearing from candidates with commercial law expertise.

GLD is a supportive and happy place to work, offering a challenging and exciting career. We are truly committed to flexible working and providing a work/life balance for our teams, along with offering attractive benefits.
