Job Details

Keen to join an integral and highly regarded legal team?

Superb in-house opportunity for a UK qualified solicitor (circa 1-5 PQE) to join an FCA regulated investment company who oversee the investment of a substantial pool of pension assets, based in Leeds city centre on a hybrid basis.

Reporting into the Head of Legal who in turn reports into the CEO, the role will have genuine depth and variety, but day to day you can expect a caseload that includes reviewing, negotiating, drafting and amending an array of contracts. You'll play a leading role in risk assessing and advising stakeholders of their options and risks as well as providing advice on public procurement legislation (a desirable but not essential skill) and application on all relevant procurements within the organisation.

Alongside group functions and a range of commercial agreements, you'll also have the opportunity to take some responsibility for compliance pertaining to the Data Protection and Freedom of Information Acts.

Strike that elusive work/life balance here. What awaits is a superb quality of work with a flexible, supportive family-friendly employer.

- discuss each role with you thoroughly and get prior clearance before a CV is submitted. This is an extremely important for protecting confidentiality and avoiding duplication
- brief you fully prior to any interviews, ensuring that you know what the role entails and how the interview will be run. We also give you honest interview feedback - if you don't do very well in an interview you can always learn from the experience
