Radiant Law, winner of multiple awards as a legal pioneer, has a rapidly growing international client base and is looking for a Junior Legal Advisor to join our commercial contracts team based in Cape Town.

 

We are interested in someone who will thrive in an environment where they are regularly asked to come up with creative solutions and improvements, and who is ready for something different to the traditional law firm/in-house experience. If you have an appetite to learn and grow with us and are interested in working at the forefront of the transformation of the legal industry, we’d love to speak with you.

 

Working with us offers you:

 

  • a work-from-home role combined with a dynamic and supportive remote team environment
  • interesting commercial contracts work for global organisations
  • a chance to get to grips with leading-edge legal technology solutions
  • time to learn about and practice lean processes and focus on continuous improvement

 

What we need from you: 

 

  • negotiate and get over the line commercial contracts for our international clients against tight time frames,
  • draft bespoke provisions where clients have particular needs,
  • work closely with clients to understand their needs and ensure that we focus on their key issues,
  • keep track of key data and review metrics to understand how well we are delivering services against the clients’ needs,
  • identify ways to improve how we deliver our services and to accelerate closing contracts, working closely with our software developers, legal engineers and document automators,
  • deliver improvement projects and demonstrate to clients that we keep getting better,
  • document what you learn in our knowledge repositories and share with the team through internal training, and
  • in time, lead on more complex contracts and eventually manage client accounts.

 

As a base you need to have an LLB, have completed your articles and have some exposure to commercial contracts so that you are ready to jump in.

 

Our environment is fast-paced and the one constant about Radiant is change, so you should be able to demonstrate your interest in a continuous improvement approach to meeting client needs. High levels of autonomy, self-motivation and strong communication and interpersonal skills are all important. Visit our website to find out a little more about our values and what we look for in team members: www.radiantlaw.com/contact-us/careers, then please include a short cover letter with your application that explains why you think you're the right fit for us.
