My client is a global media business that is a leading source of analysis on international business and world affairs. It is valued by its customers for its world-class insights and rigorous analysis. They believe their people are the core of their organisation and they strive to provide them with resources and opportunities to thrive.

A unique opportunity has arisen to head up their contracts management team to further align legal efficiencies and process with the revenue generating teams across the business. Reporting to the Senior Vice President of the legal team, you will be a key member of the senior legal team. You will lead a team of lawyers and contract managers in supporting the sales and procurement teams on all contractual matters and managing material risks. This role will also have a strong focus on managing and implementing efficient legal operations processes.

The role would suit either a qualified lawyer (8 years PQE+) with a commercial/IP background, or a highly experienced senior contracts manager, who has experience of managing a team and previous experience of working closely with sales and procurement teams. Either way you will need to be comfortable advising on contracts as you will at times manage more complex negotiations with key B2B clients (10% of role). Your key contacts are senior sales directors and international teams, so it is important you are comfortable advising and having issues escalated to you. Experience in commercial contracts, licensing and IP are all useful contributors to this role.

The organisation offers an excellent hybrid working policy with a minimum of 2 days in the office (please note these are Tuesdays and Thursdays) and some other really great benefits.

Please get in touch if you are looking for a truly great place to work with an inclusive culture, and somewhere you will be surrounded by passionate colleagues offering a wealth of experience and expertise.

Please note our advertisements use PQE/salary levels purely as a guide. However we are happy to consider applications from all candidates who are able to demonstrate the skills necessary to fulfil the role.
