• About the Firm: In Save the Children, we fight for children every single day. Our Support Services Division provides leadership and direction in the business of running an efficient organisation. We ensure our resources are used to maximum effect. We go the extra mile - and we don’t rest until the work is done.
  • About the Role: We have a vacancy for an effective and inspiring leader to join us as General Counsel, to provide strategic legal advice to our Board and management, and to lead our Legal & Compliance team.
  • Looking for: We are looking to secure your expertise and senior experience in a challenging role, including managing a team and working with senior leaders. Experience in an in-house legal role (preferably in a charity context) would be most relevant, but the post could also suit someone moving from a proactive private practice environment.
  • Opportunities: The opportunities afforded to you will include but not be limited to advising the trustees, executive directors and senior managers on the legal risks to the charity and ensure they are aware of legal issues relevant to their areas of responsibility.
  • And more: If you share our belief in the power of children, join the fight. It takes relentless determination, creativity and a real commitment to real change.
