Your new company
A global retail and supply chain organisation with a global turnover of over £5billion that has a long-celebrated ethos of empowering its people. The company has a supportive, flexible and high-achieving culture, and the offices hold roughly 700 people in a custom built, state of the art complex. Employees are rewarded with a comprehensive benefits package, including a car (or allowance), fantastic pension, performance bonus and retail discounts.

Your new role
A new commercial role reporting to the Head of Legal as part of a very well respected legal function. You will negotiate complex commercial agreements, including software, managed services and outsourcing contracts. You will also manage the negotiation of IP licenses, while providing sound risk and legal advice to clients as to e-commerce matters and digital applications. As necessary, you will support on acquisitive transactions and data privacy and GDPR matters. You will connect with all areas of the wider business and become recognised as a reliable business advisor, while being comfortable interacting with stakeholders at senior levels.

What you'll need to succeed
You will be a UK qualified commercial lawyer with c. 2-5 PQE (as a guide only). You will have demonstrable experience with commercial contracts, particularly negotiating technology agreements, as this will form a significant part of the role. You will need to be a team player able to contribute in general advisory, contracts and legal support matters. Honest and open personalities with strong stakeholder management ability will thrive in this environment.

What you'll get in return
A fantastic culture within which you can build a long-term career and an enviable benefits package. The UK entity is the holding company for numerous group companies, so the quality of corporate work will be high. The company allows its people to work a day from home upon passing probation, while there is a good deal of flexibility to work around important personal commitments. This is an empowering culture with a history spanning over 100 years.
