Solicitor – Commercial Legal Services

Solicitor – Commercial Legal Services

  • The Open University is one of the UK’s most respected national institutions and the market leader in distance higher education. Since 1971, it has been inspiring learning and creating opportunities for all who wish to realise their ambitions and fulfil their potential, whatever their previous academic attainments.
  • We are looking for a qualified solicitor or equivalent (minimum 1 year PQE) supporting the University’s research, commercialisation and procurement activity (by taking the lead on reviewing and drafting contracts) but with a focus on the Business Development and sales team so knowledge and understanding of commercial contracts is essential.
  • The Commercial Legal Services section of the Finance Division is responsible for providing legal advice and support to the University and its subsidiary companies.
  • Experience and awareness of governance issues in higher education and charities would be useful but is not essential.
  • You will be an organised team player with excellent communication sklils – both verbal and written.
