    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 a seasoned Commercial 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 9 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. 

    You will be:

    • Steeped in contract review and have successfully negotiated many commercial contracts in recent years.  You’ll know what to look out for in Master Services Agreements and Non-Disclosure Agreements. 
    • 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.
    • A trusted advisor to the business who thinks in terms of solutions and will help our leadership team in India drive the business forward.


    • 3 - 5 years’ experience in commercial contract review, preferably in IT Services, but we are open-minded.
    • Familiarity with contracts under UK or other common law.
    • Experience of public sector IT frameworks would be a bonus.
