Dear Candidate

We are very pleased that you are interested in applying for the position of Director of Operations at 9 Gough Square. I hope that you will find the information in this Candidate Brief useful and, more generally, the content of our website: http://www.9goughsquare.co.uk

We have grown to become a leading national and international common law set of chambers, known for our core strengths in advocacy, drafting and advisory work. We continue to be at the forefront of change in the legal profession and we have the experience, knowledge and resources to be able to provide innovative and pragmatic solutions to complex legal challenges. Our clients include central and local government, government agencies, corporate bodies, solicitors and individuals.

The role of Director of Operations has developed over time. Our present DOO is coming to the end of his contract, after several very successful years in post. We are now looking for a talented successor to this challenging and exciting position who will support the Head of Chambers and have a close relationship both with him and with the Director of Clerking and Business Development. You will have many commercial responsibilities and will also be the key project manager for our change of premises in 2019.

This is a pivotal hands-on role. We are therefore looking for someone who is financially astute, excellent at managing relationships, resilient, scrupulously fair and with an eye for detail. A commercial and quality-assured approach to problem solving and a quiet confidence will be essential, as will a good team spirit ethic.

If you are interested in the work of the Chambers and have the relevant experience to perform this significant role we would very much like to hear from you. Please contact our recruitment partner, Sarah Thewlis, at Thewlis Graham Associates on 020 7850 4781, to discuss the opportunity in more detail.
