The environment is unique in the area and offers a rich variety of interesting, challenging and in some cases pioneering work.

Based in North Yorkshire, the role will involve dealing with an array of contracts covering; procurement, logistics/supply chain, supply, distribution etc however you'll be working with the Board and key stakeholders advising on providing legal support during the commercial tendering and negotiation phases to ensure implementation of relevant risk management policies.

This would suit someone who is looking to add to their management experience or equally someone who is currently looking to make the next step up in their legal career. Ultimately, you will be a commercial lawyer at least 4-5 years PQE with a keen desire to help develop junior members of the team and become embedded in a business.
