A Manchester based law firm is seeking a commercial contracts solicitor, ideally with some in-house experience, for their risk and compliance team. This is a maternity cover role and will last for circa 12 months from May or June 2018.

The likely PQE level is 3-4 years, however the firm is open minded on this and invites applications from solicitors with good reviewing, drafting and negotiating experience within commercial contracts.

You will lead UK supplier commercial contract reviews and may also be exposed to some international contracts work. This is complex commercial work, and will involve elements of risk, anti-bribery and corruption.

The successful candidate for this opportunity will likely be a plain-speaking commercial lawyer, with the ability to explain complex legal concepts in simple terms to non-lawyers, with a good level of commercial knowledge and understanding of risk frameworks.

Salary for this role is likely to be in the region of £45,000 to £50,000 although applications are welcomed from candidates aiming for slightly above the upper limit. Please contact Adam Zdravkovic in the specialist Legal division at Search Consultancy in Manchester for a confidential discussion about this opportunity and a job specification.

Search is an equal opportunities recruiter and we welcome applications from all suitably skilled or qualified applicants, regardless of their race, sex, disability, religion/beliefs, sexual orientation or age
