General Counsel & Company Secretary

About the role

Carr’s Group plc is an internationally recognised leader in the manufacture and supply of value-added products and solutions. The Group produces market-leading brands and occupies a robust market position in the speciality agriculture and engineering sectors. The Group operates a model which aims to empower operational subsidiaries, enabling them to be competitive, agile and effective in their individual markets whilst maintaining overall standards and goals.

The Role:

  • An integral part of the Senior Management team, supporting the Executive Directors and Senior Management team in the development and delivery of Group strategy.
  • Responsible for the delivery of legal services and the provision of commercially astute advice and support across the entire Group (UK and overseas).
  • Responsible for management and continuous development of the Legal Team (two other E&W qualified lawyers).
  • Providing a key link between Senior Management and the Board of Directors.
  • Supporting the Chair and other Non-Executive Directors in the effective management of the Board and its Committees, and in the maintenance of good corporate governance.
  • Overall responsibility for legal, ethical, and regulatory requirements.
  • Working closely with internal and external stakeholders to ensure the function operates efficiently and successfully.

This is a fantastic opportunity for an ambitious senior lawyer to act as a key part of a talented leadership team who are transforming the group. It would suit both established General Counsels and those seeking their first “number one” role. The role is based at the head office in Carlisle, although hybrid working is available.
