This Senior Legal Counsel position will be responsible for providing legal support, services and advice to the Group in relation to M&A, corporate and company secretarial matters, finance/treasury, IT and projects. The role may also include some business as usual/ business unit work on ad hoc basis.

This is a fast-faced, high growth commercial environment so the role suits a lawyer with outstanding interpersonal skills, a “can do” approach and the ability to juggle a range of priorities.
