Fed up with the demands of working in a billable environment and seeking an in-house opportunity?
This best-of-both-worlds role allows you to benefit from the flexibility of in-house work, whilst working with one of the most prestigious international firms operating in the country.
This is an engaging commercial contacts role where you will take on critical long-term secondments for key clients and work directly with their teams to support their objectives.
Gain exposure to a range of exciting sectors and high-profile clients whilst working for a Top 10 International Firm.
For those looking to work for a firm operating at the highest level globally, this is one such business. Having been recognised across countless practice areas with Legal 500 Tier 1 rankings, this firm is responsible for developing some of the most respected legal talents around the world.
A modern firm which places emphasis on innovation, staff can expect to engage with a range of premier international clients on some of the largest and most high-quality work available. The resulting mixture of this incredible legal talent and exemplary clientele has resulted in this firm winning numerous high-profile awards.
In contrast to many firms of its size and reach, there is an excellent work-life balance and a reputation for a friendly and supportive working environment persists.
Employees receive excellent remuneration, benefits and first-rate ongoing professional development to ensure they can take ownership and progress in their careers.
Suitable for any solicitor with good commercial contract experience, regardless of practice area: joining this prestigious firm, you will initially be provided specific training on how best to work with in-house legal teams and add the most value possible.
You will then go on strategic secondments with some of the firm's most high-profile clients, whereby you can gain exposure to sectors like energy, media, telecoms, infrastructure and projects.
Primarily, you will be supporting clients on commercial contracts and as you will be able to work across a range of sectors for months at a time, you will benefit from being able to dig deeply into the businesses you are supporting and have an unparalleled range of work.
You will not be required to bill such as in a traditional private practice role and the most important thing is to ensure positive client feedback. The role is heavily client-facing and would suit someone with strong commercial contracts experience seeking an in-house role without having to sacrifice their range of work.
Highly flexible and with an excellent work-life balance, this role is a wonderful opportunity to step out of a private practice environment whilst maintaining all of the benefits of working for one of the premier global firms.
