An excellent opportunity has arisen for an experienced Commercial Contracts Lawyer to join a Local Authority within East Anglia.

Our client is seeking a Commercial Lawyer to join the council's legal services team for an initial 3 month. The successful candidate will be responsible for dealing with a range of contract and procurement matters to include;

  • Service, supply and works contracts
  • Drafting, negotiating and advising on contracts in relation to construction, service level agreements, loan agreements, consultancy and IT matters
  • Advising on procurement matters

Our client is keen to hear from candidates with a strong contracts background and a real desire to work within the public sector. We believe this position would be really well suited to lawyers with a minimum of 2 - 3 years post-qualification-experience.

This role offers a competitive hourly rate and whilst Public Sector background is desirable, those from a private practise background will be considered.

We encourage interested applicants to apply immediately to be considered for short listing. Alternatively should you require further information or wish to discuss your suitability before applying please contact Leah Edgar in our Manchester office for a confidential discussion.
