Commercial Contracts/ Projects Lawyer - Leeds

A unique and interesting opportunity has arisen for a NQ-5 years PQE commercial contracts lawyer to join a top 100, national firm in Leeds.

The role is with the Commercial and Infrastructure department, which is highly-respected in the local authority and healthcare sectors, and ranked by the Chambers and Partners and Legal 500 directories and is one of the main advisors for the NHS. The team also deal with some project work for private companies, so you can expect an interesting and varied caseload.

A typical day will involve advising on all types of commercial contracts matters. However, you will also touch upon governance issues, child sexual exploitation and project work.

As a top ranking team, they assist on the delivery of the most complex projects for both the public and private sectors, hence the level of exposure you will receive will be excellent.

Importantly, you will not be expected to have substantial experience working across all these different areas. Our client understands that you will be filling a very unusual role and are willing to train up those with excellent commercial skills but with an appetite to expand their knowledge in to the interesting area of local government work.

Secondly, although experience advising local authorities or the NHS is desirable, this firm will look at commercial lawyers from all backgrounds, but who can demonstrate an interest in learning about local governments.

An excellent opportunity for a commercial contracts lawyer, looking for a posistion which can offer a broader and more stimulating work-load than the typical commercial role.



Brooke Thornham Consulting advertisements use PQE levels purely as a guide to the level of experience required for the role and this does not prohibit applications from candidates who are able to demonstrate the necessary skills and experience. We aim to respond to enquiries as soon as possible but if we have not contacted you within 5 days then unfortunately on this occasion your application has not quite met the requirements of our client closely enough.
