Your new company
A FTSE listed international business with interests in the technology, engineering, construction and manufacturing sectors. The company has operations across over 50 countries and employs in excess of 20,000 people across its divisions. The business has a rich history spanning over 150 years and is a multi-award winning enterprise. The company has offices in London and Berkshire in the UK, with this role being based in the Berkshire offices.

Your new role
A commercial generalist legal in-house position, reporting into the General Counsel of one of the engineering divisions. As part of a small immediate team, you will draft and negotiate a broad range of commercial agreements, while also advising on data protection, intellectual property, compliance and other ad hoc issues. The role will cover the EMEA region as part of an international team of six lawyers, and will involve conversing with European colleagues.

What you'll need to succeed
You will be a commercial lawyer with roughly 3+ PQE (guide only, more junior candidates will also be considered), and fluency in one or more European languages, including Italian or Spanish. You will be able to commute to Berkshire daily, and you will have some in-house exposure. Ideally, you will have trained at a reputable firm, while lawyers initially qualified in other major common law jurisdictions including Australia and New Zealand will also be considered. You will have excellent communication skills and strong negotiating ability, with the proven ability to build relationships across the business. Experience in other sectors will be readily considered.

What you'll get in return
You will receive an excellent salary, package and good levels of autonomy in your work. The General Counsel has a strong reputation of developing people, so in addition to good international work you will have an excellent mentor relationship. This is a great chance to build your in-house career in a celebrated FTSE listed business that has expanded well into different business verticals.
