If so, you may be the right Deputy Director to lead the Department for International Trade Legal Advisers’ Free Trade Agreements legal team, which is a division of the Government Legal Department.
The Department for International Trade (DIT), established by the Prime Minister following the EU referendum, has overall responsibility for developing, coordinating and delivering a new trade and investment policy for the UK. This will include preparing for and negotiating Free Trade Agreements and market access deals with non-EU countries. DIT will work side by side with the Department for Exiting the EU, which will negotiate the UK’s new relationship with the EU.
The Department for International Trade Legal Advisers is a Division of the Government Legal Department which advises DIT’s Trade Policy Group (TPG), set up to provide the capability to deliver an independent trade policy for the UK . An opportunity has arisen for a Deputy Director to lead the Services and Free Trade Agreements legal team.
The post offers an exciting opportunity to work in a fast paced and evolving environment, responsible for advising TPG on trade law issues as the department prepares for future negotiation of Free Trade Agreements and market access deals with non-EU countries.
