If you’ve ever flown in a plane, been in hospital, or even given blood, there’s a good chance we’ve helped keep you safe. For nearly a quarter of a century, we’ve been providing software solutions to thousands of customers such as the UK NHS, Virgin, PwC, Emirates, Heineken and even Harvard University. We’re not a large faceless corporation, but we’re not a fly-by-night dot com company either. With more than 450 employees in multiple locations across the UK, USA, Dubai, Malaysia and Bulgaria – not including our global Partner Network – we’re one of the most exciting and fastest growing software companies in the world.   

If you are a recent graduate or a legal professional looking to start or accelerate a career in commercial and contract law, then this is the perfect opportunity to grow and develop your skills, within a dynamic commercial environment. This role is based in East Kilbride; however occasional UK and international travel may be required on an ad-hoc basis, dependent on the needs of the business.

Key responsibilities:

  • Negotiate and/or review a wide variety of client and vendor contracts
  • Provide day-to-day legal advice to the business on commercial and contract matters
  • Researching applicable regulations and laws to ensure compliance
  • Contract risk analysis and avoidance
  • Manage the process of contract terminations and enforcement of contractual terms as necessary
  • Fostering a customer-focused culture, delivering a quality service for key stakeholders, both internal and external
  • Updating contract templates and other legal documents, such as bid/tender documentation
  • Undertaking training to key stakeholders
  • Supporting with dispute resolution and litigation
  • Assisting with debt recovery
  • Undertaking any other tasks as deemed relevant and reasonable by the business

To be considered for this position, you must have:

  • A degree in Law
  • Robust demonstrable knowledge of legal practices; you will be expected to stay on top of new developments within law, practice and industry, and can effectively communicate this to the wider commercial team
  • The ability to read and analyse legal documents and information
  • Outstanding communication skills, both written and verbal
  • Excellent stakeholder management with the ability to naturally build rapport and confidently liaise with colleagues, clients and the like
  • A positive hands-on approach, with exceptional organisational skills and self-motivation to prioritise your own tasks
  • Strong Microsoft Office skills, particularly Word and Excel
  • A passion and enthusiasm for your area of expertise
  • Experience with commercial contracts

What's in it for you?

While we take our work and deliverables seriously, we have a relaxed working environment and we want our people to be rewarded for their hard work. We offer benefits such as; 34 days’ holidays (inclusive of bank holidays), Enhanced Maternity and Paternity Pay, Contributory Pension Scheme, Free On-site Parking, Private Medical Insurance and many more!
