Respected international company

Ex Top-Tier GC. Great small team

Broad commercial, corporate (and energy, and banking) work

New exciting in-house role


Our client is a market-leading international company offering a diverse and interesting in-house legal role. Working across the Business and Industry, Healthcare, Education, Defence, and Energy and Resources sectors, and with a positive outlook, this role will appeal to a capable commercial / corporate or energy lawyer who is ready to join a thriving business and a growing friendly and dynamic legal team.

A truly broad and commercially based role, this will encourage an in-house counsel to play a key role in the business over time. Excellent culture and environment.


Enjoying good support, this role itself is broad and will provide substantial responsibility and opportunity. You will work closely with the collaborative General Counsel (ex top-tier) in a small team and other key managers as you assist with the legal function and become involved in significant legal matters for the business.

You will manage, negotiate, and draft a suite of contracts and commercial agreements, advise on regulatory issues and governance risks, and assist with other legal issues related to a large base of suppliers. You will be working with key stakeholders across all levels of the business about negotiations, keeping the business up to date with new and existing legislation, and providing support to a strong compliance framework with guidance and training. Be the influential and trusted advisor as the business continues to grow rapidly in this dynamic environment.

Work can include general commercial, corporate/mergers & acquisitions, energy, projects, procurement, property and intellectual property and trademarks, insurance, and privacy.


To take on this position you will be at least 4 years PQE and up to about 10 PQE, and be a front-end commercial lawyer. Training in a well regarded firm or in-house will be important, and the ability to get on well with people from a range of backgrounds will assist in your success. You should be commercially-minded rather than just a black-letter lawyer.


While this role will pay well, and allow for advancement for the right person, the real benefit of this role is the rare opportunity to assist with being a legal advisor in a pro-active, positive iconic company making further headway in the market. While there are established systems and support in place, you will be able to make your mark.
