Our client is looking for a Senior Legal Advisor with experience in advertising, marketing and/or media agency work to join a supportive legal team at this household, award winning television broadcaster.

This exciting new role forms part of a new structure within the business that blends the broadcast and VOD elements to create a focus on digital, branded content.

The successful candidate will provide first class legal support to its internal stakeholders - the commercial and group marketing teams - in relation to all types of commercial and marketing activity around its programming.

In this role you will be part of a legal team advising, negotiating and drafting on multi-platform branded deals pertaining to the commercial and marketing arm of the business. This will primarily involve advising and assisting internal stakeholders on all aspects of commissioning branded content and carrying out all related drafting and negotiation.

To be successful you will have sound experience within a media in-house environment, however, candidates from a private practice background will also be considered provided you have experience in the relevant sectors (e.g., advertising, marketing, brands). Experience of working with media buying agencies and advertiser clients would be hugely beneficial as you will manage these commercial deals from the ground up. A solid understanding of the relevant regulation (including Ofcom Broadcasting Code, BCAP and CAP Codes and data protection legislation) would also be beneficial.

You will be comfortable working autonomously and developing relationships across the business and externally. You will have excellent negotiation skills, be a natural communicator and a self-starter who closes deals.

The successful candidate will have access to a wealth of legal templates and support from a wider legal team in this role and, in turn, will be expected to forge key relationships internally and externally whilst carrying out their legal duties in the management and closure of commercial and marketing deals. You will report directly to the Head of Legal and sit in a sizeable legal team.

This role is London based and would be ideal for a candidate of about 5-6 years PQE who is looking for a new challenge, working in a creative, dynamic and supportive environment.

If this role if of interest, do not hesitate to contact me.

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.
