A Manchester based law firm is seeking a commercial contracts solicitor, ideally with some in-house experience, for their risk and compliance team. This is a maternity cover role and will last for between 9 and 12 months from June 2018.
This is a relatively senior appointment, so the likely PQE level is 3-4, however the firm is open minded on this and invites applications from solicitors with good commercial contracts reviewing, drafting and negotiating experience.
You will lead UK supplier commercial contract reviews and will also be exposed to some international contracts work. This is complex commercial work, and will involve elements of risk, anti-bribery and corruption as you will be dealing with supplier contracts.
The successful candidate for this opportunity will likely be a plain-speaking lawyer, with the ability to explain complex legal concepts in simple terms to non lawyers, and will have a good level of commercial knowledge and understanding of risk frameworks.
Salary for this role is likely to be in the region of £45,000 to £50,000. Please contact Adam Zdravkovic in the specialist Legal division at Search Consultancy in Manchester for a confidential discussion about this opportunity and a job specification.
Search is an equal opportunities recruiter and we welcome applications from all suitably skilled or qualified applicants, regardless of their race, sex, disability, religion/beliefs, sexual orientation or age.
