Job Description

Our client, an innovative and fast growing edtech company, are seeking a Legal Counsel to join their team based in Newmarket.

This is a great opportunity for a dynamic and focused lawyer to be a key part of an internationally growing edtech business in a very exciting and fast moving time for the edtech sector.

In the role of Legal Counsel, you will be assisting and supporting the senior team on legal matters across the domestic and international sides of the business. You will become the first point of contact for legal matters including but not limited to data protection; licensing agreements; employment matters and commercial contracts.

Working as part of a collaborative team of people you will need to build strong relationships across the business internally and externally. Our client are looking for a self-driven, adaptable team player, who is able to work autonomously, managing your own workload. 

The ideal candidate will have 2-5 years experience with a background in corporate law. Employment experience would be a bonus but not essential. 

This is a rare opportunity where you will gain valuable sector based experience and grow your knowledge, but also with the possibility to gain broader commercial experience.

Ideally you will be office based, with some flexibility and potentially some home working. Our client will consider part-time working for more senior candidates.

Interviews will be conducted via video.

Errington Legal provided a personal, tailored and friendly service. They listened carefully to the kind of firm that I wanted to work for and the nature of work in which I hoped to be involved then made targeted suggestions based on this. They outlined a range of options to me but were careful not to waste my time or that of firms by putting me forward for interviews for roles which were not aligned with what I was looking for. They also spent time with me in the run up to the interview helping me to prepare. As a result, they found me a role at a firm where I am extremely happy and doing a job which I love, for which I will always be immensely grateful.
