Commercial Lawyer - (1-2 PQE)

Based in Leeds - Excellent Salary / £Market

A great package is on offer, together with opportunities to progress your career within this fast-growing business. You will need to be prepared to travel from time to time to our client's sites across the UK.

Some flexible working will also be possible

This opportunity will appeal to capable and ambitious commercial lawyers who are looking for a varied and challenging position with a great deal of autonomy and a high degree of responsibility.

Our client is a well-known and highly regarded UK business with growing overseas interests. They operate in the technology skills and training sectors.

The role is highly commercial with a broad-based workload encompassing a wide variety of contracts - some with an international component.

You can also expect to be involved in M&A, joint ventures, outsourcing, data privacy, intellectual property and company secretarial matters.

  • One of the attractions is the requirement for the successful candidate to genuinely become an integral part of the commercial team;
  • seeing transactions through from start to finish and beyond as well as adding real value to the business. This is not a job for lawyers who prefer to work from the safety of an ivory tower!

    You might already be in house or you could be in private practice with a reputable firm and considering your first move into industry.

    Our ideal candidate is a commercial lawyer (probably 1-2 years PQE) who can convince us of their commercial pragmatism as well as their technical excellence.

    Your core legal skills will be commercial, but we will be looking for the demonstrable ability to understand the bigger picture and identify solutions to complex issues, combined with decisiveness and a clear understanding of legal risk management.

    You are likely to have gained these skills in a strong regional or national law firm and experience of working in house (perhaps on secondment), while not essential, will be an advantage.

    A great package is on offer, together with opportunities to progress your career within this fast-growing business. You will need to be prepared to travel from time to time to our client's sites across the UK.

    Some flexible working will also be possible. If this sounds appealing then please don't hesitate to get in touch.

    If you would like to understand more about this role please contact Nick Benson at Ortolan who is a solicitor.

    Ortolan Group is an employment consultancy acting on behalf of our client.
