Your new company
A market leading international corporate travel and hospitality organisation, with head office in magnificent, modern offices in the heart of London. The organisation has enjoyed exceptional growth across its international markets, implementing its acquisitive growth strategy to increase its market share in both the European and APAC regions. With 350 people in London and more than double internationally, this company has clearly demonstrated its intention to carry on its incredible growth trajectory and will be a truly leading brand to work for.

Your new role
A sole counsel in London, reporting directly into the Chief Financial Officer. You will engage with the senior leadership team in helping the company achieve its global objectives. You will lead in the drafting and negotiation of business critical commercial agreements, while advising on varied data privacy, employment and IP orientated matters. The legal infrastructure has been well-established by the recently departed Legal Counsel and there is excellent support available from external counsel also. While the company has engaged in significant acquisitive work of late, the corporate transactional work has largely been handled by external counsel. There is the opportunity to work a day from home as part of a flexible working culture.

What you'll need to succeed
You will be UK or Commonwealth qualified lawyer with demonstrable UK experience in varied commercial generalist matters. You will have significant in-house experience, either as a sole counsel or as part of a team, and you will have the confidence and commercial head to work autonomously as the sole lawyer. You will need to be assured in managing stakeholders at different levels of the business. The business will need someone at mid level experience.

What you'll get in return
You will be part of a magnificent business growth story, within an organisation that has established itself as a market leading corporate travel company. You will be part of a collaborative business culture, with the autonomy to make the role your own in an international environment. You will be rewarded with a commensurate salary and excellent benefits package, together with the work-life balance that will ensure you remain happy and motivated.
