Job Details

Who doesn't want to work for a company who values them as a person and appreciates you will no doubt have a life/family outside work? Who doesn't want to work for a business which has strong values and moral compass, which are demonstrated both to their customers and employees in equal measure?

My client has these attributes, along with a sizeable In-house legal team and a genuinely interesting caseload, largely on account of several internal projects and refreshing take on procurement.

We'd be interested in speaking to qualified lawyers with at least a couple of years PQE in commercial contracts, who really enjoy building relationships and solving problems. Background is secondary, but you must be an approachable, pragmatic and resourceful individual with stellar communication skills and a demonstrable understanding of the principles of being an In-house Lawyer.

There are likely to be career opportunities to grow and develop in time, but you with be working in a friendly, supportive and collegiate whilst being paid competitively, too!

If you're feeling a little taken for granted, or are being kept in the dark regarding working conditions/arrangements in the "New World", there are alternatives. Whilst this role is based at the Groups HQ in prestigious offices in central Leeds, the option to work from home 3-4 days a week is there if it suits your personal circumstances?

Please drop me a line if you have any questions or would value a conversation on 0113 467 9789 or email me at This role could equally suit a lawyer looking to make their first move In-house as it will someone who is a little disillusioned and looking for something which offers a bit more fulfilment.

There are alternatives…………………………..
