As one of the UK’s largest garden centre retailers, Dobbies is a prominent, successful and much admired business with both great history and heritage, along with an exciting future. Today it employs over 2,600 people at 34 sites around the UK. The business was acquired by Midlothian Capital Partners and Hattington Capital from Tesco PLC in 2016 and has clear and ambitious plans to grow in scale and value.
As part of this, Head of Legal is a new position and will be a visible role within the business. It will be responsible for managing all legal risk across the company by providing advice to the CEO, Board and Senior Leadership Team on all legal and related matters. This will include:
- All commercial contracts, supplier agreements, pricing and promotions
- All corporate activity including potential acquisitions
- Concession leases and tenants
The Head of Legal will also be responsible for the Company Secretarial function within the business and as a result will attend Board meetings.
This is a great opportunity for a qualified lawyer with relevant experience to join a great business at a very interesting time in its development. Needless-to-say this will require strong interpersonal skills with a proven ability of building and managing successful relationships with colleagues and stakeholders at all levels.
