Job Details

Are you a procurement / commercial contracts lawyer, seeking partnership? This role could be yours. 

Our client, a national law firm, is on a government panel along with two other firms.  Together these firms  are responsible for advising on: 

- Procurement strategy and the procurement tendering process for the award of public contracts. 

- Advice on procurement issues arising from varying public contracts post award. 

- Setting up public sector-controlled companies. 

- Bringing (or defending against) procurement challenges and advising on ways to minimise risk of challenges. 

- Facilities management contracts - these firms have advised on high-profile examples - e.g. many London councils. 

- Repairs and maintenance contracts. 

You should have a minimum of three years' PQE, either from a well-known regional or city firm, or from a government department / in-house environment. 

Amongst the benefits: 

- The firm has six regional offices; you can be based out of any of these locations and can work quite remotely (the official firm policy on 'remote work' is that you have to be in the office when work dictates you do).  The policy is available by email. 

- The role can be full or part-time with flexible working. 

- The firm offers a long list of benefits - including 25 days holiday (with the option to buy and sell), enhanced maternity/paternity leave, free car parking from senior associate upwards, 5% matched pension contributions.  Interested candidates can have a full PDF of benefits. 

- The firm have a leadership programme to develop their lawyers to partnership.  It is anticipated this role will lead to partnership, so it would suit someone who has this level of ambition.   For suitable candidates, it could potentially be offered at Salaried Partnership at the beginning.  

- It is not anticipated there will be a high volume of applicants for this role; as a result the partner is happy to informally meet candidates via video call in advance of any formal interest being put forward.  This can enable any suitable lawyers to find out more about the firm and its offering without any need to pursue the role formally.
