  • Opportunities: The opportunities afforded to you will include but not be limited to, ensuring the business is advised promptly, proactively, commercially and pragmatically to help Selfridges be as effective as possible in achieving its strategy, vision and purpose; and advising key stakeholders on legal issues affecting the business in a commercially savvy way, considering the nature of the business, its risk appetite, providing a steer and offering a view.

You will need to be a good influencer, make strong relationships, be a positive, pragmatic decision maker and work well in a fast-paced environment to help identify risk and balance common sense with legal expertise.
