The Co-op is changing. And it's changing fast. We've got a new look that's fresh but familiar. A new offer for our members that's different to everything else on the market. And a renewed sense of purpose that's helping us to out-perform the competition. Our in-house legal team is one of the biggest in the UK, and now we're looking to recruit a Senior Regulatory/Commercial Lawyer to join us, and provide the expert legal support our business needs to keep the transformation on track.

As a Senior Regulatory/Commercial Lawyer at the Co-op, you'll have the chance to contribute to some of the exciting changes that are going on right now, and work closely with some of our most senior leaders. To be successful you'll need great technical skills, real resilience, and a natural ability to build great relationships and influence all kinds of different people.

What you'll do:

* Review and negotiate a wide range of commercial contracts

* Act as a business partner and provide commercially focused advice to our leaders

* Help to lead and manage change by contributing to steering groups and project meetings

* Support, develop, coach and motivate less experienced lawyers in the team

What you'll bring:

* A current practising certificate for England & Wales or full admission to the English Bar (or hold a Scottish or foreign law equivalent)

* Plenty of post qualification experience

* Experience of drafting a variety of commercial contracts

* Great influencing skills and the ability to build strong relationships with people at all levels

Why Co-op?

172 years ago a group of businessmen in Rochdale created an idea that changed the world. They believed that when people work together, they're stronger, and they were passionate about the principles of equal opportunity and fair reward. It's thanks to them that when you join the Co-op, you'll receive a competitive salary and an amazing benefits package, as well as opportunities to learn and grow in Europe's most environmentally friendly office building.

We want to change the world all over again. If you believe in our purpose, and you'd like to help shape the future of our business, then join us. And help rebuild an iconic British brand.
