Your new company
A global leader in logistics and supply chain, predominantly serving clients in the pharmaceutical sector. The business is part of a US owned group of businesses that is collectively an international leader in its field. The organisation has achieved double digit growth for the last few consecutive years and has continued its trajectory both organically and through a major acquisition. With state-of-the-art offices in Central London, the business operates a hybrid working culture.

Your new role
A Senior Counsel role reporting into the General Counsel, as part of a hugely respected legal function. The successful candidate will also manage a Contracts Manager. In a truly global setting, you will manage key stakeholder relationships internally and externally, while negotiating and reviewing complex and lucrative commercial agreements (including customer and vendor contracts). You will strategically advise on business initiatives, both in relation to new and ongoing third-party relationships. Bridging international culture and language gaps, you will support the global business with fluency in at least one major European language.

What you'll need to succeed
You will ideally be a UK qualified lawyer, with 5+ PQE (as a guide) and fluency in at least one foreign language. You will have in-house experience as a commercial generalist, with sustained exposure to managing senior stakeholders, ideally in an international setting. People management would be advantageous.

What you'll get in return
You will work in a truly global dynamic, on high-value and strategically crucial commercial matters, gaining exposure to rich variety in legal work. You will also build up your people management skills. In a hybrid working set up, you will be rewarded for your work with a highly competitive salary and bonus package, and exceptional benefits.
