A fantastic opportunity has arisen for a Corporate Solicitor to join a well-established legal firm and help them drive forward one of their key offices.

Joining a great team, you will be exposed to a wide range of corporate work including sales and acquisitions, business structures and restructuring. This particular role could be based in the firms Bradford or Leeds office but to work within the wider department across the Yorkshire region.

This role is perfect for you if you are keen to take the next step in your career and just need the right role to open the way for you to step up. Our client is invested in their lawyers career development as and would work with you to achieve your professional goals.

The role:
l Picking up a broad range of corporate work
l They need someone who can work largely unsupervised and run some transactions themselves
l There is an existing caseload for the successful candidate to pick up, however this person will need to be able to develop more work and create new relationships for the department over time
l Plenty of career opportunities and view to partnership, they could even consider this immediately for someone with a business case
l Chance to mentor and support more junior colleagues

The candidate:
l Our client are ideally looking for someone who has at least 5/6 years PQE, however it could be that you are much more senior, they would just need to review the business case for a lateral hire
l The firm are looking for someone that has a broad range of corporate experience, ideally working with OMB's and SME's
l A strong team ethic is essential as although across site there is a strong team ethic.
l Previous business development experience would be advantageous but they are happy to consider lawyers who don't have much experience within this but are keen to undertake it

This is an excellent role for a mid to senior lawyer or even a Partner who wants to join a strong regional firm where there is plenty of scope for them to make their mark.
