Part Time General Counsel (1/2 days per week)

An exclusive and luxury holiday homes company is seeking to hire its first General Counsel and Company Secretary, on a part-time basis.

This business has been going for over 50 years and has grown organically across the UK. The business has now made a decision to hire its first in house lawyer to manage all legal affairs and company matters including Co-Sec work. Currently all legal work is outsourced to a law firm.

The role will only take up 1/2 days per week and will suit someone who is looking for a flexible arrangement. The business wants to reduce external spend on law firms and move most of its legal work in house. Additionally it seeks to hire someone who has experience of Co-Sec work and can therefore act as the primary legal adviser to the Board and Executive Committee.

Candidate Requirements:

  • Qualified Solicitor, who can act as Sole Counsel and Co-Sec
  • Experience of commercial contracts, real estate and company law, including Company Secretarial matters
  • Strong commercial acumen and an ability to provide positive and risk aware commercial advice
