Head of Commercial

Manchester – £60,000 - £75,000

We all know the demand for good commercial solicitors is growing, if you are reading this then I'm sure you will have already come across several other positions, most likely sounding the same in make-up.

I am hoping that we can stand out with something a little different here. We are working with a FTSE250 company who are entering the legal services market and are looking to appoint a key hire to head their commercial team.

This will not be run and the mill and, in truth, not an easy role in the first 12 months. We are looking for someone who, with a huge brand behind them, will be able to grow the base of the commercial team - building relationships with internal stakeholders (globally) adding ideas, processes, structure and energy to the team.

Salary and benefits are superb. If you are interested about talking about something different in the market, then call me.

Please contact Jon-Paul Hanrahan, Associate Director, to discuss this role in more detail or apply through the vacancy for immediate consideration.

We are a regulated recruitment consultancy and will discuss this role and seek your approval before submitting an application directly to the decision maker.
