Underground maintenance company Tube Lines is on the hunt for a new general counsel after previous legal head Nicola Geoghegan moved back to Australia.
Geoghegan's move comes as Tube Lines is expected to enter the bidding for a PPP contract originally taken on by rival maintenance company Metronet, which went into administration this month.
The head of legal role at Tube Lines pays a base salary of £115,000. The company is looking for a lawyer with at least eight years' experience and who specialises in construction and contract law but has some knowledge of employment and environment issues.
Tube Lines was formed through a joint venture between infrastructure companies Ferrovial of Spain and Bechtel of the US. The general counsel will be expected to work closely with the legal teams of the company's key shareholders.
Tube Lines has a 30-year PPP contract with London Underground and is currently rebuilding the Jubilee, Northern and Piccadilly Lines.
