An exciting opportunity has arisen for a senior lawyer to join a fast-paced and commercially focused legal team of a well-known retail brand.

Reporting to the Head of Legal, you will be responsible for negotiating a wide range of commercial contracts, including supply chain and logistics agreements as well as service agreements. You will work closely with the procurement team on contract tenders and negotiation, and work with the marketing teams on advertising campaigns and strategy. Providing legal advice throughout the business units, you will also have one direct report and will be responsible for the mentoring of other junior members of the team.

You must be a UK qualified lawyer of at least 7 years' PQE. Ideally, you will have extensive commercial contracts experience gained in a well-respected commercial team either in private practice or in-house.

This is a new opportunity to join a fast-paced and vibrant organisation who are leaders in the retail sector. They have a great legal team with a supportive and inclusive culture; this is an excellent opportunity to develop your in-house legal career.
