A Paralegal or Law Graduate is required for an exciting opportunity with an In-house Legal team based in central Birmingham. The role would be perfect for a Paralegal or Law Graduate with 6-12 months experience working in a law firm or In-house team, or potentially a placement whilst studying, who is interested in working at the heart of a global business. Salary is dependent on individual experience.

Working with clients across the UK, EMEA, and Africa, the successful Paralegal will be required to review, draft, and negotiate a variety of commercial contracts and advise on compliance and procurement issues. As part of the small In-house Legal team you will also field legal queries from across the business and, alongside external Solicitors, will advise on litigation, employment law, IP, and real estate matters.

The business is offering unrivalled experience; the opportunity to handle high value commercial contracts as a Paralegal, work with high profile clients across the world, and begin your legal career at the heart of a commercial business. There will be plenty of opportunities to develop and progress, and the business is willing to fund the Cilex route for candidates who demonstrate their value and commit to the role.

Applications are invited from genuinely ambitious and driven candidates. You will understand the commercial pressures of working as part of an In-house team and relish being part of the business; candidates may have experienced working in Private Practice and be now looking for something different. Applicants should demonstrate strong academics but personality is key, and candidates should be strong negotiators and excellent communicators.

This is an exceptional opportunity for a Law Graduate or Paralegal to join the In-house Legal team of this growing, exciting, and successful commercial business based in the heart of Birmingham.
