Be one of our lawyers
The Legal Director is expanding and is looking to provide nationwide coverage so that businesses in every region of the UK get the chance to appoint their own part time legal director.
The lawyers in our network are self-employed and contracted to us. They lead a fascinating and varied work life, working for a range of different businesses on a basis, which suits them and the clients they work with. Working with us can be extremely rewarding both professionally and financially but you need to be highly committed if you are considering moving from an employed in-house role into one of our lawyer roles.
It may be that you can make the move from an employed in-house role to The Legal Director through offering your employer the opportunity to use your services in a different way - by outsourcing your role to you at The Legal Director. This can be a useful springboard to help you to make the move.
If you are interested in working with us you must be a solicitor or barrister with previous experience of working as an in-house lawyer although we may give consideration to exceptional candidates who are interested in our model and want to bring their extensive legal experience to part time legal director roles for our clients. You should also be looking to develop a career with us rather than looking for a stop gap or an opportunity to participate on a limited basis only.

You must understand the importance of communications and building relationships with the business people you work with and must have a pragmatic and commercial approach to delivering legal advice.
You should be interested in business development and be prepared to help us develop our client portfolio. You should also be prepared to move into a role, which for an initial period will involve building up your portfolio. We may be in a position to place you in one of our client roles from day 1 but this is not guaranteed and you will need to join us with the objective of developing a client portfolio through working with us on business development.
We ask suitable applicants to meet us at our offices in London. Lawyers who have the requisite experience and skills and who would like to receive more information about The Legal Director should send their c.v. to firstname.lastname@example.org.
