We are currently creating a pipeline for Commercial/Procurement Lawyers that we will be recruiting for across several Government Organisations and Contracting Authorities in the coming weeks / months.

Imagine having a talent that could benefit someone you’ve never met and solve problems you didn’t even know existed. Well, you do, and you can. And we’re here to help you do just that. At PSR we are the go-to place for talented contractors and temps for a rich variety of civil service roles.

As a Commercial/Procurement Lawyer, you will:

  • Play a key role in instructing, working alongside and managing external law firms and counsel where additional and/or specialist advice is required

You’ll have:

  • Good commercial and contract law experience
  • Excellent powers of analysis of legal commercial problems and sound commercial legal judgement
  • An ability to negotiate effectively and to draft commercial contracts
  • Reliable legal judgement and appreciation of legal risk
  • Sound analysis, using secure legal research to produce timely and fit for purpose advice
  • A constructive approach to solving problems and the ability to provide legally sound, risk-based advice
