Sellick Partnership are honoured to be working closely with a prestigious Charitable Trust to recruit a Head of Legal Services to lead their dynamic Legal team.

The successful legal professional can choose to be based at any of their offices across England and will ideally be able to start in March, although this can be worked around.

My client is seeking a personable, spirited individual who is commercially astute, with proven experience of success within senior legal roles. This role would suit an individual currently heading a legal team, or someone who is ready to advance their career by stepping into a Head of Legal Services role.

The successful Head of Legal Services will be a professional and well-rounded individual, and will be proficient in commercial areas of law, such as general commercial law, commercial contracts or property. Prior experience of serious incident reporting, charity law or working with charities is desirable, although not essential for this role. Additional experience of procurement, employment, planning or data protection would be a bonus.

My client describes the organisational culture to be friendly and collaborative, with the workload being extremely interesting and varied; no two days are the same.

The client is happy to consider applicants from a spectrum of backgrounds, to include similar public sector organisations, local government, private practice and in-house.

As Head of Legal Services of this well-respected organisation, you will assume a hands-on approach to the role and will be responsible for managing a team of legal professionals, as well as dealing directly with legal matters and engaging with key stakeholders. You will therefore be autonomous, organised and an excellent communicator, with a track record to evidence this.

On offer is attractive flexible working arrangements and a salary of £50-64k per annum, depending on location. The organisation also offers an unrivalled pension scheme that certainly makes this an opportunity you do not want to miss!

This is a fantastic opportunity to be part of a reputable and progressive Charitable Organisation, contributing to impactful change across the country.

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 Chloë Cameron in our Manchester office for a confidential discussion.
