A year long contract has been made available at one of the major players in retail banking. Working closely with the General Counsel and other senior lawyers across the various legal teams, this role involves interesting and potentially cutting edge work. The position will require the contractor to be willing to go the extra mile.

The suitable lawyer will be assisting with a number of projects including a migration project, involving moving platforms and replacing infrastructure. You will be dealing with transitional service agreements and other large commercial, IT and outsourcing contracts. Some commercial legal work will be in relation to M&A transactions and there could potentially be some litigation in relation to their commercial contracts. You will be looking at the nature of some very complex relationships and how the bank operates within the contractual framework, pulling together the different strands to help achieve a more successful platform on which the bank can operate. Although a stand alone role, it is essential that this person is a team player and has excellent communication skills as you work with a variety of people and personalities across the bank. The role would suit someone who is looking for unique and interesting work. You should enjoy and have previous experience of multitasking large projects. You will get exposure to technology in the banking space as the organisation becomes more innovative and cutting edge within the market. The key to this position is flexibility and we are seeking a lawyer with a good legal grounding and academics who is not overly concerned about black letter law but has suitably varied experience, ideally from previously working across a large organisation. Whilst strong contracts experience is essential you could come from a banking, commercial or corporate background. The desirable level of qualification is 7 years but candidates from 5-10 will be considered.
