An exciting opportunity has arisen for a talented commercial lawyer to join the legal team of one of the UK’s largest media companies. Their content reaches around 65% of adults in the UK as well as attracting large digital audiences globally.

You will be joining a collaborative legal team comprised of five lawyers reporting into the Head of Legal. Responsibilities will include negotiating a broad range of contracts and advising on a wide variety of issues in a client facing role, including: advertising technology, sponsorship, M&A, digital, licensing, SaaS / PaaS, intellectual property, and marketing matters. The work is interesting and fast paced and exposure to senior leadership is guaranteed!

Ideally you will be between two to seven PQE with strong private practice experience and training. They are happy to consider candidates from commercial TMT teams as well as those from corporate/litigation backgrounds who are looking to transition into more of a commercial role. In-house/secondment experience is not essential but you will need to be a commercially minded lawyer who enjoys working in fast-paced, dynamic environments.

This role provides an excellent first step in-house with scope for progression within the business and hands-on experience with key commercial stakeholders.


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.
