Job Description

As a result of Inzpire’s continued success and business expansion in both the UK and overseas markets, an excellent opportunity has arisen for an In-House Commercial Lawyer.  The successful candidate will be required to undertake a range of legal and commercial tasks, in direct support to the Company’s Head of Legal & Commercial Division and working closely with other members of the team.

The Person.
