Job Description

This position will cover a number of duties but the principal areas will commercial contract review and negotiation and regulatory research and advice. As with any small team there is always a long list of ad hoc duties that will likely form a regular part of the day as well.

Due to the nature of the work it's not vital that candidates come from an asset management background so this represents a fantastic and rare opportunity to get a foothold in that industry without any prior experience. Candidates will need to demonstrate a willingness to take on a number of different tasks and have demonstrable and extensive experience covering a number of different contract types such as supplier agreements and IT contracts etc. 

The team and client are very well known to us and we placed the person this role will report to so can attest to both their technical and management qualities.

This is for an initial 6 month fixed term contract and while no promises can be made there is plenty of work to be done so does have potential beyond this.
