Team Lawyer - Contracts, Procurement and Special Projects

We are looking to recruit a Team Lawyer with up to 2-3 years PQE to join our successful in-house contracts and procurement legal team. Candidates who do not have post qualification experience in Contracts and Procurement would be considered for this role. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to develop legal skills by working on a wide range of legal matters and also supporting the other Lawyers in the team. The post holder is expected to demonstrate strong personal legal and strategic analysis, judgement and pro-activity.

We are looking for a flexible, motivated and ambitious lawyer with extensive experience of:

  • handling their own caseload of work alongside supporting the other Lawyers of the team
  • building effective relationships with client departments
  • attendance at and positive contributions to meetings

The work of the team is varied, including frameworks, DPS and term contracts of differing complexity, collaboration agreements, MOUs, IPR, construction contracts and other commercial legal issues. Knowledge of GDPR and its impact on public contracts is desirable.

The role will be conducted largely remotely for the foreseeable future, and it is likely that there will be a significant amount of homeworking available once the office reopens.
