Sheffield based plc with highly regarded and genuinely integral In-house legal department is looking to expand the team. It's both a fantastic opportunity for a non-contentious lawyer to move In-house or it can equally provide a progressive step for a candidate already In-house and looking for the next role, given the position has a fair degree of autonomy and opportunity to influence the business following recent change.
First and foremost, you will need to be a stellar communicator with a positive, helpful and personable commercial approach. They are a business with core values and a strong ethical code, so you'll need a demonstrable approach which is in synergy with theirs, both from a technical and cultural perspective.
Experience of projects and/or construction contracts, appointments, warranties, bonds and associated documentation would be especially useful, however those candidates who have a few years PQE gained from a more generalist contracts background are welcome to apply. The group has a successful track record in recruiting more generalists previously and they can provide a supportive environment for those with the right aptitude and attitude. Nevertheless, an interest in construction, projects or development work is probably a pre-requisite.
In return, they offer a highly competitive salary and benefits package and the opportunity to work flexibly, including compresses hours and/or part time. Whilst the role is fundamentally based in Sheffield, there will be options to work at various sites including Leeds and Manchester, as well as from home.
A fantastic opportunity within a fantastic organisation which enjoys real stability and true career. For a confidential chat, please contact Steve Shakespeare on 0113 467 9789 or email on firstname.lastname@example.org
