The Satellite Applications Catapult is on the lookout for Interim Legal support to help us with all our legal matters!

As an ideal candidate you will be a qualified and experienced solicitor or barrister in England and Wales, with significant and demonstrable PQE. You will have experience with drafting and advising on complex commercial contracts and grant agreements without supervision. This is a stand-alone interim role that includes the responsibility for protecting our IP, including overseeing identification, disclosure, registration and dissemination. You will feel at home with state aid matters and advising our senior management with all our legal issues and risks. Most importantly, you come into your own when it comes to grant agreements, commercial contracts and NDA’s.

Your daily responsibilities will be varied from directly influencing large-scale commercial contracts and grant agreements with customers, property agreements and legal matters related to corporate transactions to ensuring the Catapult, as whole, is aware of all commercial risks prior to entering into agreements, and where possible, mitigating it through its contractual arrangements. You will be responsible for assuring the Catapult is compliant with laws and regulations, particularly associated with State Aid compliance, and any changes in domestic law or EU Directives and Regulations are identified in advance so we can amend our policies and procedures in contemplation of changes.

You will fit in well if you have passion for your profession and are more than happy to consult and give support where needed. We are all about people and growing the UK economy and we are incredibly lucky to work in one of the fastest growing, and most exciting, industries in the World! So, what are you waiting for!?
