We are looking for an experienced individual to join our Legal & Compliance Team as Legal Counsel, assisting the Deputy General Counsel and Legal & Compliance Team in providing advice on legal matters across Save the Children.
Working in more than 120 countries, we do whatever it takes to create breakthroughs in the way the world treats children. We have made enormous progress for children in the last few years and have ambitious targets to build on this momentum.
Our Legal & Compliance Team supports the organisation to meet its goals. As well as advising on all aspects of the charity's work, from our fundraising and campaigning to our UK and overseas programming, our team also sets the standard for compliance, data protection and information security, to ensure that we meet our ongoing targets. We are leaders in creating innovative partnerships with the commercial sector and other agencies. You will have the opportunity to advise on these and other commercial agreements, including fundraising, IP/IT and procurement contracts, and to ensure the Save the Children brand is protected in the UK.
As an expert in your field, you’ll advise staff on legal issues and risks, including corporate and charity governance, fundraising, marketing, data protection, trade marks, copyright, defamation and litigation matters. You’ll also work closely with our colleagues at Save the Children International regarding our overseas programmes.
We see you being an England & Wales qualified solicitor or barrister with a sound knowledge of contract and commercial law. Previous experience of charity and fundraising law and practice would be great, but not essential. This is a great opportunity to join us if you are already in the charity sector or are looking to transfer from either in-house or private practice.
At Save the Children we are committed to the safeguarding and protection of children in our work. We will do everything possible to ensure that only those who are suitable to work with children are recruited to work for us. This post is subject to a range of vetting checks including a criminal records disclosure.
Our mission is to inspire breakthroughs in the way the world treats children and to achieve immediate and lasting change in their lives. If you share our mission, are passionate about making it happen and strongly believe you can contribute then join us and we'll give you every opportunity to succeed. We look forward to hearing from you.
