Job description / Role
Charterhouse is working with a top UK law firm who are looking to hire a Legal Project Manager. The LPM function has been a huge success for the firm in the UK and due to a couple of big projects in the UAE, they now require someone to be based in Dubai. This will be a standalone role, supported by the team in the UK.
About the Role
As a Legal Project Manager, you will be responsible for working closely with the Lawyers, Key Stakeholders and Clients to deliver projects/matters, aiming to raise profitability, efficiency and client service. You will be involved in strategy implementation and operational support on the ground, often in a client facing role. You shall advice and work closely with the bids and proposals team on pricing and quotes. There could be elements of transformation programme management.
The successful candidate should come from a similar position, candidates outside of the UAE will also be considered. However, general project management experience from other professional service companies would be advantageous (Big 4 / Management Consultancy). You should have excellent experience in a client facing role, ideally from an international company. In addition, you should be confident assessing finance and performance metrics in order to provide the best value to clients.
About the Company
The Charterhouse brand and business was launched in Dubai and the Middle East in April 2004 by a team of international recruiters and management consultants, after its inception in Sydney, Australia in September 2003. Charterhouse Middle East is now positioned as the leading regional recruiter within its area of disciplines and functional markets.
Charterhouse offers professional and bespoke contingency and retained search services to all sectors of the market. Service quality is guaranteed, thanks to a particular focus on flexibility. Charterhouse was the first international search and selection business to establish Dubai as its base. The growth in the Middle East region has been mirrored by Charterhouse globally, with offices now in Abu Dhabi, Qatar, Hong Kong, Singapore, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney.
