SENIOR LEGAL COUNSEL, ENGINEERING/PROJECTS/CONSTRUCTION
WORLD LEADING SOLAR ENERGY COMPANY
c. 3-10 YRS' PQE

REMOTE WORKING

We are delighted to work with this leading business in the development, construction and operation of solar power plants worldwide. It's a purpose-led business focussed on Net Zero, sustainability and climate neutrality in a growing and exciting sector.

The Role
This is a new position reporting to the International General Counsel, who is based in the UK. The succesful candidate will work with  the Directors business on a wide range of work for the development and realisation of solar and battery energy projects during the contract stage, taking leadership during negotiations, highlighting and leading initiatives to minimize risk. Matters will include EPC and O&M contracts, option and lease agreements, supply, sub-contractor, purchase and confidentiality agreements, equipment purchase and construction contracts, operation and maintenance agreements, as well as real estate matters, interconnection, power purchase and energy hedging arrangements. A lot of the work will be bespoke.
 
Candidate Profile
We are looking for a talented Engineering, Projects or Construction lawyer, qualified in England & Wales with a strong academic and legal training record. Around 5 years' PQE is only a guide, and we are keen to speak with lawyers either side of this who are confident, can operate autonomously and are happy with remote working.

You might have moved in-house already or still be in private practice, either way you will have a solutions focused and business minded approach. We are looking for relevant experience in contract forms including FIDIC, NEC, JCT and bespoke forms of contract and familiarity with project development and financing. Experience in alternative energy and distributed power sources (such as solar, energy storage, wind, geothermal, biofuels and hydroelectricity) will be helpful but is not required and can be developed on the job.

This business is incredibly proud of its collaborative and positive culture, which is supportive and encouraging. It is a solutions-focussed culture and the company enjoys fantastic employee retention and loyalty. The working hours will be very reasonable and though this is a full time role you will have full freedom to manage your own workload. 

If you are keen to join a forward-thinking, purpose-led, fast growing business, with interesting work and flexible/remote working then please apply ASAP!
