Job Description

At Version 1, we pride ourselves on being business enablers with our “Easy-To-Do-Business-With” approach.  We view contract review as a collaborative process involving both (a) internal collaboration with stakeholders across our Commercial, Finance, Practice and Data Protection functions and (b) external collaboration with our customers and key suppliers.  The Version 1 Legal Team is looking for an experienced Contracts Manager to join our team and help increase our impact on the business. 

You’ll be welcomed into a dynamic, flexible, friendly Legal Team of 4 which is underpinned by policies, processes and checklists for contract review.  We always have each other’s back and have developed effective ways of connecting while working digitally.

  • Competent at reviewing contracts with an eagle-eye to identify risks and areas that deviate from company policy – whether it’s on limitation of liability, service levels, change requests or time of the essence.
  • Business-minded – you’ll be adept at keeping stakeholders engaged at all steps of the process and shifting focus to align with business needs.  Balancing risk against reward is part of how you operate.
  • An experienced, active negotiator who can listen with empathy and drive the right results for Version 1.
  • Collaborative and effective at escalating policy deviations to the designated approvers and explaining contract risks in plain English.
  • Skilled in working across functions to develop internal policies, procedures and best practices in relation to contracts.
  • A trusted advisor to the business who thinks in terms of solutions.
Qualifications
  • 5+ years’ experience in commercial contract review, preferably in IT Services, but we are open-minded.
  • Experience of public sector IT frameworks in Ireland and/or the UK would be a bonus.
