Job Spotlight – In-house Legal Counsel, Birmingham

Posted on 04/12/2017

In this section we will give you a closer look at one of our top job vacancies, and a little bit about how we can help guide you through the process of making it yours.

We are working with a leading international bank to help expand their in-house UK legal team based in Birmingham. Priding themselves on their client-centric approach, the bank act for a broad market; from individuals on an everyday basis, to household-name companies and institutions on complex finance matters.

The successful candidate will liaise directly with other departments and legal counsel, and as such must possess excellent communication and interpersonal skills, along with the ability to build relationships and influence in a cross-functional environment. You will be creative, flexible, and a strong team-player who can bring fresh ideas to existing work processes. Equally, you will be an expert negotiator, with demonstrative private practice or industry experience of banking transactions. You will have solid experience in drafting and negotiating complex master documentation, such as derivative contracts based on ISDA, credit support documents and repurchase transactions.

If you have exemplary drafting, supervisory, negotiation and organisational skills and you can bring a proactive, collegiate and ambitious approach to this role, please get in touch with our in-house consultant Eimear McCann on 07815 689 587 / 0161 880 0118, or via email,

We will guide you through every step of the way, from initial contact to your first day. However, unlike other recruiters, once you’re in your new firm, we won’t suddenly disappear onto the next candidate. Our door is always open for you to let us know how you’re getting on, and we can provide any support or guidance as you get to grips with your new position.
