About the Opportunity
The company now has a need to hire a General Counsel and Company Secretary. Reporting to the CEO and working directly with the business, the role requires a competent commercial lawyer to lead the legal team and advise on business activities, including M&A and commercial contracts. You will provide legal support on growth strategies and projects as well as advising a range of complex, often sensitive situations.
To be most effective in this role, you will need a strong sense of commercial awareness as well as a high degree of care and thoughtfulness. Whilst healthcare industry experience is not essential, some experience in M&A as well as experience working for a private equity business would be useful. The ability to effectively manage and motivate a team is key, as is the ability to build and foster relationships with all stakeholders across the business.
This is a rare and unique opportunity to join a leading business in a high profile area of healthcare in a key role for the business and the opportunity to lead the legal function.
