Company / Commercial Lawyer (Part time)
Company/Commercial Lawyer – Part-Time – Salisbury, Andover, Amesbury or Fordingbridge offices
We are looking for an enthusiastic experienced company/commercial lawyer, to join our client in any of the above locations.
The job is suitable for a solicitor or a very experienced legal executive with genuine ability and good experience of working in a UK private practice.
So, if you are a confident, well-presented, friendly and approachable lawyer with excellent communication skills, we want to hear from you.
The successful candidate
The right candidate will have
- at least 4 years’ solid experience of non-contentious commercial work in private practice
- great people skills and will be an enthusiastic team player
- good organisational, time management and IT skills
- the ability to multi-task under pressure
- a keen eye for detail
- the confidence and the ability to react to change whilst working within a pressurised environment
- excellent standards of client care and great communication skills
- a history of strong billing
- a desire and the ability to help in the growth of our commercial work
In addition, a useful, but not essential, attribute would be the ability to handle employment work.
The ability to work unsupervised is absolutely essential. This person will be our only company/commercial lawyer, although we do have experienced commercial property and commercial litigation lawyers.
Building a job around you
To a certain extent, we are happy to build the job around the needs and requirements of the successful candidate – but we anticipate that it could involve flexible working.
Home working, or any one of our 4 branch offices – Salisbury, Andover, Amesbury and Fordingbridge. To make the job work, we expect the successful candidate will need to physically visit our offices from time to time for relationship and team building purposes. However, during lockdown, the role can be 100% home working. Video calls will therefore play an important role if the candidate is not local.
They will, however, need to have excellent broadband to make this work
Ideally, we are looking for someone who wants to work for a total of three days a week. That can either be three fixed days or spread throughout the working week.
However, a degree of flexibility, and in particular a willingness to answer urgent queries or new client enquiries outside any formal work period would be extremely useful.
Flexible working is nothing new to us. For the last 10 years or so, many of our lawyers routinely worked from home. And as a result, we were well placed to continue to offer a high level of client care when coronavirus hit and lockdown imposed.
We are more concerned with output than input – what we are really looking for is quality legal work, highly satisfied clients and great billing
