Douglas Scott have a new opportunity for a Junior to Mid level Commercial Solicitor in Manchester. Our client is a leading UK business with a presence across all of the UK's key industries.

You'll join an experienced and well established Legal team which specialises in Contracts Law.

This is a fantastic opportunity for an ambitious Solicitor to join an in-house team which is integral to the performance of the business. On a day to day basis the successful candidate will advise the business on a range of contract renewals, bids & tender proposals, join cross business project teams, and support more senior colleagues on high value transactional work. You'll be afforded the opportunity to become a trusted business partner to specific areas of the Group where you'll provide ongoing expertise and commercially focused legal advice.

The team has an excellent track record of developing their people in areas beyond the day to day Commercial Law work. Flexible working is on offer, as is UK travel within the role.
