Contract Lawyer (Ref: 2023_325)
Contract Type: Permanent
Hours: 37 per week
We are looking for a qualified lawyer to join our property and contracts legal team.
Joining our friendly and supportive Lexcel accredited in-house legal team, you will support a wide variety of clients from across the council on contract related matters. This will include drafting contracts, reviewing contracts, and providing advice in relation to a wide range of contract matters, from general advice through to contract dispute resolution.
The successful candidate will possess excellent personal management skills and be able to keep clear and accurate records to demonstrate high process compliance.
Flexible working and remote working means that we can consider candidates from out of area in a way which was not always possible in the past. We are looking for candidates who have transferrable skills and are able to work across different work types for a range of clients to provide greater agility in adapting to changing demands.
Knowledge of contracts is an advantage for this role, however, more importantly we are looking for the right person to join our team. Therefore, we welcome applications from those who believe they can transfer existing knowledge or experience from a different area into this role. We also welcome applications from newly qualified lawyers who may be looking to develop into this role.
In return we can offer you a comprehensive benefits package including flexible working, a local government pension scheme, 32 days annual leave (plus bank holidays!), employee discount benefits, and access to a range of technologies to support modern ways of working.
