An exciting opportunity to join World-Changing University of Glasgow!

The University of Glasgow is the fourth oldest university in the English-speaking world and one of the top 100 universities in the world. While international in outlook, and with a global reach, it remains grounded in its local community.

Working as part of a busy in-house legal and contracts team, the successful candidate will draft, review, negotiate, and finalise a wide range of contracts with other academic institutions, government and other public bodies, commercial entities, and individuals, and will provide a broad range of legal advice and support to colleagues across the University.

The post will suit an individual with a good grounding in commercial contracts and intellectual property law. However, training will be provided.

The successful candidate should be hardworking, organised, flexible, and should have a genuine interest in the HE sector. They should have excellent communication and people skills, be committed to building strong relationships and be able to work well both independently and as part of a team.
