Job Description

We are working in unusual circumstances and we appreciate that this is an unsettling time for all employees and employers. We have always believed in absolute transparency and as such we want to be clear about the status of vacancies. Some of the roles we have been working on have only very recently been placed on hold, whereas some are still live and the client has confirmed that we are to continue with our search. We will therefore indicate the status of each role clearly so that applicants are clear on the position.  

This role is on HOLD but we still invite a conversation with candidates in advance of it becoming live in the future

5 - 7 years PQE
Competitive Salary + Benefits

We are currently recruiting for a Legal Counsel to join a growing multinational in East Anglia.

The successful candidate will support the business across a broad range of legal issues and work closely with the executive team to influence the legal strategy of the wider organisation.

We are seeking a solicitor with a commercial approach who proactively promotes the legal function to stakeholders internally and externally.

The ideal candidate will have a combination of private practice and in house experience.

This is a really exciting opportunity for a talented lawyer looking to progress within a fast growing multinational with a vibrant culture.

Testimonial

In 2015 Eleanor helped us successfully recruit our first Group Head of Legal Affairs. As a new role to the organisation we appreciated that Eleanor took the time to speak with all of the relevant stakeholders within Cambridge Assessment to understand the type of person that would fit in well. With an understanding of our organisation she created a strong foundation that supported the search throughout its entirety. The shortlisting options that Eleanor provided highlighted just how well she knows the legal market and represented her strong understanding of our requirements.
