In this position, you will be a part of the international expert organisation and your main focus is to ensure all group legal matters and Company Governance are professionally conducted, in cooperation with the group management. In this senior advisor role, you will support your collegues on sales, tender and delivery processes on juridical matters as well as on Corporate Governance and possibly HR related juridical issues. You should have expertise on contract law, company law and preferably also on labour law and contribute your experience with the business. Besides this, you will be in charge of group legal policy, together with group management and manage the external legal network. Through your actions, you get the projects successfully done and enjoy the variety of your duties: you will support on contract and tender drafting, consult your colleagues on export control related legal matters and make sure all the statutory legal related documents are up to date. On top of this, you will also support the Group CFO on legal issues e.g. insurance coverage.
