Job Description

My client is a consumer lending business based in Essex. They are looking to hire their first head of legal, to work directly with the CEO. The company has a start up feel, they have scaled quickly to 200 people and are growing further. They have very low staff turnover and like to promote from within. 

The opportunity allows the successful lawyer to get involved in any legal issues that can effect the business. The work includes both contentious and non contentious work, commercial contracts, lending work and regulatory work. They are regulated under CCA and CONC, so knowledge of this will benefit your application. You will be tasked with managing external counsel and advising the board on strategy and growth from a legal perspective. 

They are looking for a talented, robust lawyer who is able to make commercial decisions and support the brand of the business. It would suit a lawyer who is 3+ PQE, who is not afraid to go outside their comfort zone. The business offer flexible hours, including remote working. 

This is an exciting opportunity for a talented lawyer to gain senior board exposure.
