Great opportunity for an experienced lawyer to join a public agency on a 12 month fixed term contract.

Ideally you will have experience in advising on procurement processes, public law and/or regulatory matters. If you had experience in employment law that would be a bonus.

You will assist the Head of Legal in maintaining excellent working relationships with stakeholders and external counsel, and you will handle a complex and varied caseload in the following areas:

  • Procurement and commercial law, including advice and review of evaluation and award criteria, transition and standstill
  • Contract law and procedure, including advice on redaction, contract terms and redrafting
  • Administrative and public law matters, including advice on statutory interpretation of the agency's powers, judicial review and challenges on procurement
  • Regulatory law matters
  • Freedom of information and data protection, including GDPR

This role can be done remotely, however you will need to be able to get to London and Birmingham for occasional meetings.

Please note our advertisements use PQE/salary levels purely as a guide. However we are happy to consider applications from all candidates who are able to demonstrate the skills necessary to fulfil the role.

Please note that your personal information will be treated in accordance with our Privacy Policy.
