This FTSE 100 technology company has a newly created Junior Legal Counsel opportunity to assist the General Counsel and Senior Management on a broad range of general corporate and commercial IT work.

You will work closely with the Tax, Treasury, Company Secretariat, Commercial Legal and Corporate teams on complex deals and to ensure that intragroup transactions are structured correctly and meet deadlines. Part of this broad commercial role will expose you to an array of board meeting advisory work where you will draft the preparation of materials in a pragmatic and easy to understand format for directors of subsidiary companies on corporate matters awaiting approval. You will provide advice on corporate governance matters, including requirements under the UK Corporate Governance Code, and assist with the preparation of the Group’s annual report.  As this position works closely with numerous non-legal teams you will need to be capable to build strong working relationships with business stakeholders in order to have an influence on key decisions.
