Contracts and Procurement Lawyer required to join a commercial and forward thinking local authority based in London for an initial 6 month period.
This is a fantastic opportunity for an enthusiastic Contracts and Procurement Lawyer to gain exposure to public sector contracts. The successful candidate will be working on major projects on behalf of the local authority involving complex contracts and Shared Service Agreements.
This is a very interesting and varied role and you will be drafting, amending and negotiating a wide variety of contracts. Duties will include;
- Drafting contract clauses

The ideal Contracts Lawyer will have experience of working in a similar role within the public sector, however this is not essential providing that an excellent understanding of public sector contracts and procurement is held.
