Job Description

Legal Counsel
Flexible Working

Candidates often mention that they would like to work in a challenging team that will allow them to gain the greatest development, yet they don't want to work in start-up environment because it is too unstable whilst they still sit at the beginning of their career.
Well why not have both?!
This fast-paced organisation is going through an exciting period of growth, yet they are an established organisation with a stable legal team.

The chance to join a FTSE listed company that provides retail businesses with cutting edge technology to facilitate their financial services and allow them to grow profitably. With a network of over 25,000 retail stores and a retail services platform cover 16,000 stores, they sit at the heart of communities across the UK.
The organisation is growing at a rapid rate as they proceed through a number of exciting acquisitions within the technology and payments space, and now they need a new legal counsel who can help them continue to thrive!

The role focuses on commercial contracts covering IT (including SaaS), payments, and service provision, with additional work on data protection and regulatory issues, preparing legal responses to tenders, and assisting in the development of policies and process improvements. You will act as a business partner when necessary, providing broad legal advice to the wider business group.
The ideal candidate will be an independent self-starter who feels confident building relationships with a variety of stakeholders within the business.

*Competitive Salary
*A stable yet smaller team so you have the opportunity for significant development and progression within a challenging environment similar to a start-up, yet you sit within a stable team that provides crucial mentoring similar to an established firm.
*Break into the financial services sector without requiring any finance background.
