The University of Strathclyde is a leading international technological university, focused on delivering excellent teaching and world-class research, and known for forging strong collaborative links with industry, government, business and the third sector.
This new role will lead a faculty-facing team of legal professionals, based in the Grants and Contracts Team in the University’s Research and Knowledge Exchange Services directorate, providing specialist support and legal advice on externally funded research and knowledge exchange contracts.
You will lead and oversee the negotiation of contracts on behalf of the University ensuring that the legal and commercial risk to the University is appropriately managed contractually, maximising financial return and protecting academic and University interests.
You will have sufficient depth of expertise in the sector to make an immediate impact on the work of the team, and to provide guidance and support to less-experienced lawyers.
You will have a degree in law and/ or extensive specialist experience (preferably in a higher education or professional services environment) of contract negotiations and of advising clients across various legal matters affecting the operations of a large research-intensive University. You will possess high level communication skills, the ability to work collaboratively and influence at a senior level, experience of assessing and balancing legal risk and reward, and the ability to plan and lead a faculty-wide contract portfolio and deliver to deadlines.
Interviews are scheduled to take place on 2 March 2023.
