Our client is a large commercial group with significant part of their business made up of property and retail businesses.
They are now keen to hire for a Senior Legal Counsel (10 years pqe) who will take responsibility for the legal team of the Irish operation.
While this is very general, broad-based position, candidates must also have significant experience of real estate / commercial property transactions.
There are 4 direct reports, so strong leadership qualities are essential.
In this role you will work closely with the CEO of the Irish operation, to whom you will have a dotted reporting line.
This position reports to the Legal Director who is based overseas.
This is a particularly hands-on, commercial role, so you must display a keen interest in the business side of law, be highly motivated and energetic.
This is a senior hire for the group and a very interesting opportunity for a legal counsel who enjoys roles with a broad spectrum.
Ideal candidates will have some previous in-house experience, however a very commercially minded lawyer coming directly from a firm will also be considered.
A full and detailed job spec is available.
