The successful candidate should have a strong legal background. Since your role will cover aspects of commercial and employment law (amongst other areas), we are not expecting you to have proven expertise in all areas – and in many cases you will continue to liaise directly with retained services from a range of law firms. The candidate may come from a law firm or an in house position and, a working knowledge of data protection/GDPR provisions would be beneficial. However a strong commercial law background covering contracts and MSAs is required.
Interpersonally you will need to be sociable and communicative, as you will have to interact with colleagues across the globe.
