A new temporary contract has become available for a Solicitor to join this public sector body based in Edinburgh with flexible working. The role will initially be for a 12 month contract with a strong possibility of there being a permanent role available after that. Public Procurement experience is essential.
This role sits within the Commercial Contracts department which acts as an interface between a public sector organisation and the commercial sector. The Department advises in many diverse areas including public procurement law, data protection, clinical trials, health and social care and IT.
The successful candidate must have expertise in drafting, revising and negotiating contracts for a range of clients as you will be responsible for providing expert and complex legal advice to clients within the areas of procurement and contracting in local, regional and national projects of high value and complexity. You will often be the lead negotiator in such projects which are demanding, can have significant budgetary implications and are of long term operational and strategic importance.
Part of the role will also involve researching the law; advising clients on their legal and commercial position; drafting tender and contract documentation, opinions, correspondence and legal documentation; and undertaking formal note taking at meetings.
