£Competitive (dependent on experience) & excellent benefits
Changing the world is no easy task. But in 1999 that’s exactly what Good Energy set out to do. Its purpose is to enable people, in their homes and their businesses, to play an important role in combatting climate change, by providing households and businesses access to locally sourced 100% renewable energy. Fast forward to today, and the business is now a key player in the renewable energy space, and despite challenging market conditions has continued to grow profitably over the past 5 years.
The business has recently reviewed its longer term strategy and is now poised to take a leap forwards, focused on a transformational growth agenda which delivers long term value for its customers, shareholders and people. This will enable the achievement of its purpose; powering the choice for customers, of a cleaner greener future. Good Energy now employs around 300 people in the historic market town of Chippenham, Wiltshire.
About the role
We have an exciting opportunity for a Paralegal to join our Legal Affairs Team. In this role you will support our legal team of four qualified lawyers to ensure that the team is able to deliver commercially considered legal advice enabling the business to meet its objectives.
You will assist with the provision of day-to-day legal support and advice across Good Energy’s businesses and supporting the legal team to ensure close engagement with key business stakeholders, the alignment of objectives and priorities and to demonstrate a clear focus on delivering value whilst managing risk. You’ll be confident in offering pragmatic solutions to identified risks and in escalating to key stakeholders where necessary.
You will be an experienced Paralegal ideally with experience of working in-house and with the relevant legal qualifications. A good communicator, you will have the ability to build strong and trusted advisor relationships. Experience of working in a highly regulated business is desirable but not essential. You will be able to demonstrate where you have successfully offered pragmatic advice and delivered solutions to complex legal challenges. You’ll be part of a small but creative thinking, dynamic and very friendly team in a fast paced office.
You don’t have to have a background in renewable energy but you must be motivated by working for a purpose and values led organisation, and have the capability to learn about a complex industry, fast.
