About The Role

We now have a fantastic opportunity for a 4+ year PQE Commercial Solicitor (with particular experience in technology) to join our busy Corporate Legal Team on a permanent basis to provide technical and legal advice and guidance to all business divisions of the RAC Group.

In this role you will:

  • advise on complex technology/IT and commercial legal issues, drafting, reviewing and negotiating a broad range of agreements including software licence agreements, SaaS, data licensing agreements and related service agreements with software vendors and other IT service providers;
  • draft, negotiate and advise on a variety of commercial contracts, including those relating to brand licensing, insurance, marketing and IP;
  • provide legal advice on a range of issues, including but not limited to the cost-effective resolution of contentious matters;
  • build and maintain strong relationships with internal stakeholders and business partners;
  • identify legal risks and communicate these to the Executive for risk acceptance in accordance with established procedures;
  • liaise with external advisors as appropriate; and
  • be able to work independently with minimal supervision.

A solicitor with not less than 4 years post-qualification experience, you’ll have post qualification commercial contracts experience either in-house or in practice.  If the latter, you will ideally have undertaken a secondment although this is not a pre-requisite.  Experience drafting, reviewing and negotiating technology agreements is essential, as well as a strong commercial acumen, a solution focused approach and the ability to demonstrate innovative thinking.  An understanding of the financial services industry would also be advantageous. With excellent verbal and written communication skills you’ll be highly pro-active and organised with the ability to provide pragmatic and fast advice to your internal clients, understanding their commercial and strategic needs.

Whilst this role is Bristol based, our teams are currently working from home.  As of January 2022, restrictions permitting, colleagues will be expected to be in the office two days per week (one of which must be a Wednesday).
