Contract Analyst
Ref No.: 18-13438
Location: Lexington, Massachusetts
Start Date / End Date: 10/01/2018 to 09/30/2019

The Contract Analyst will work within Legal Operations supporting the Approval Only process, negotiating contracts including confidentiality agreements and those supporting the Tech Ops business.

This role would probably not suit a US qualified Lawyer but would suit a paralegal type or Contract Analyst or someone with contracting experience. The hours are pretty flexible in terms of start and end but needs to be full time (40 hours per week). Some working from home will be permitted after a bedding in period. They really must be IT literate and able to learn the contract management system.

The role is a pivotal part of the team and the Contract Analyst will take on matters escalated by the non-legal members, provide advice to the team and also business clients and support the wider legal department where required.

Previous experience of negotiating contracts is essential, preferably in the pharmaceutical industry. It would also be preferred if the candidate had worked in a similar Contract Analyst or paralegal role but full training will be given. Legal qualifications are not required but must be substituted by reasonable experience. The work revolves around the use of a contract management system so the candidate must be familiar with IT applications and willing to learn the system in use. Communications skills are essential and their English must be excellent.
