Is this role for me?

Just as you would suspect, our legal teams look after Vodafone's legal estate across the UK and play a big part in ensuring Vodafone’s compliance with recent regulatory laws.

• Provide sound legal advice, assistance and support (on both a proactive and reactive basis) to the Enterprise business unit in writing, orally, by presentations and in meetings?
• In the case of disputes, work closely with the dispute resolution team to determine our position and strategy, advise the relevant internal customers and achieve a resolution?

Who are you looking for?

We are looking for a Qualified Lawyer with around 2 years PQE within commercial contracts negotiation either from private practice or in-house. We need someone with good negotiation and influencing skills who can provide sound legal advice to our Enterprise business unit. We want someone who can change the conversation we currently have with our customer and can think outside the box when creating their solutions.

What’s in it for me?

Great reward with a competitive basic and generous bonus scheme. We will also throw in 28 days’ holiday (plus public holidays) and a flexible work environment. You will get to work with a fun, diverse and driven team who love what they do and a leadership team who listen, support and inspire you to be your very best!
