Our client, Neovia Logistics, is a vibrant and dynamic company.  We are looking for two enthusiastic newcomers to strengthen the EMEA legal team (based in Vilvoorde): a Commercial Counsel and an Administrative Assistant.

What would be your main responsibilities?

  • Commercial contracts (standard and non-standard):

    Logistics Services Agreements, Warehousing and Distribution Agreements, Amendments, Special Service Requests, Master Agreements, Consulting Agreements, review of customer-proposed terms and conditions. 

  • Drafting contracts and providing guidance and interpretation to support implementation and redlined recommendation.

  • Reaching consensus and negotiating contracts, sometimes directly with the customer’s attorneys.

  • Maintaining contractual records and documentation.

  • Coordinating with relevant departments/stakeholders and ensuring contract visibility and awareness.

  • Interacting with external service providers, participating in meetings, etc.

  • Monitoring competitive terms and customer satisfaction with the company’s terms and conditions and contracting practices, recommending changes.

  • Working with the Risk Management Department to coordinate contractual insurance requirements. 

  • Enthusiasm is the key to everything…

  • Self-starter with a proactive approach to work, ability to multi-task and work quickly.

  • Confidence in navigating the business, ability to work independently and collaboratively.

  • Ability to systematically analyze complex problems, draw relevant conclusions and implement appropriate solutions.

  • Language requirements:

    • Strong verbal and written skills in English and the ability to convey complex information in a way that is easy to understand for others.

    • German: good comprehension and proofreading skills. Speaking German is a plus, not a must.

  • Strong negotiating and persuasive skills, both in one-on-one and group situations.

  • Ideally 3 to 5 years of experience in commercial contracts. More or less is negotiable.

  • The work atmosphere is simultaneously professional and informal: a pleasant work environment in new, airy and light-filled offices in the Medialaan (with a bus stop and ample parking nearby). In the midst of the hustle and bustle of other companies with a dynamic atmosphere. Wonderfully designed new offices and a company restaurant.
    In short, a creative and stimulating environment!

  • Generous trust, freedom and mutual flexibility: flexible working hours, leaving home after the traffic jams, home office.
    You organize your schedule in line with both the business andyour personal situation. After all, results are what matters! 
    This means you combine hard work with a proper work-life balance!

  • Travel? Your choice! You can opt for travel during your contract negotiations. You prefer to stay at the office? You’d rather Skype than travel? That’s fine too!

  • As a global company with different cultures our client offers the chance to grow and express yourself in a global enterprise.
    A broad and interesting horizon! 

  • Enthusiastic EMEA legal department (VP, legal counsel, paralegal, project engineer) who can’t wait to share their passion with you.

  • This company genuinely invests in its legal department:

  • All the tools you need are at your fingertips.

  • You report directly to the Vice President, Associate General Counsel. She will show you the ropes so you can work autonomously within the organization in no time.

  • Variety and challenges.

  • Realistic growth opportunities:
    Varied legal content and an ongoing learning process. The admin assistant of this team advanced to a paralegal position. If opportunities present themselves you will also have the chance to take the plunge: this can be enriching in terms of content and can also mean interdepartmental mobility.

  • Meritocracy is a reality here!

  • Neovia Logistics is a company people are proud to work for!
