Job Description

Macildowie Executive Search are delighted to be assisting an extremely successful retailer in their search for an experienced in-house corporate lawyer for their Head of Legal and Company Secretary role. The role would suit a candidate who has been in a standalone in-house role at a senior or head of level like a General Counsel position previously.

In terms of context, the business is a complex, multi-site retailer with operations nationally. They have exciting plans for sustainable growth and are performing very well against their long-term strategy. This role is intended to support the senior leadership team (CEO/Chair/CFO etc) in their execution of that strategy from a legal perspective. Whilst this role isn't Board-level, it is a critical part of the leadership team and their ability to deliver against these goals.

So what are the must-haves in terms of experience for this role?

* Qualified to work as a solicitor or barrister in England & Wales

* Experience as an in-house head of legal (nb this is a standalone role) ideally in a PLC

* Ideally experience performing legal casework for a multi-site operation

* Experience of legal advise in areas including data protection, product liability, competition law, marketing, advertising and promotions, e-commerce and intellectual property

* Experience of or close exposure to Company Secretarial duties

* An enjoyment of dealing with a varied caseload (could be property law one minute, then supplier contracts the next)

* An ability to win hearts and minds of people at all levels of the organisation

This is a superb opportunity for someone looking to have control of the full legal and CoSec casework for a large, successful commercial organisation in the retail sector.

If you have the experience and are looking for a high impact, high performance and low-ego environment, then this role could be the perfect opportunity for you. This business are really proud of their direction of travel, culture, EVP, customer retention and ethical/sustainable outlook. If this culture sounds like the type you'd like to be immersed in whilst working, then please apply using the link below asap.
