Goods transport by train will become increasingly more important in the future. It is far less detrimental to the environment and mobility than road transport. Furthermore, it is often safer and more efficient. B Logistics is one of the largest European private enterprises in the area of goods transport by rail. B Logistics therefore believe that it is their responsibility to convince companies to opt for the modal shift away from the road to more goods by rail. 

B logistics carry out that ambitious task with the best products, innovative services, a large fleet and a great deal of passion and input for their customers. B Logistics want to grow and make a real difference on an international scale.

Your main responsibilities will be of two different natures:

1° Managing the contracts’ team (2 people) within the legal department of the company (20%):

  • Managing and prioritizing the work.
  • Providing assistance, guidelines and support to the team.
  • Preparing reports to the Head of Legal. 

2° Providing legal services to the business for any contract related topic (80%): 

  • Managing and drafting contracts (Belgian and international scales): 
     
    •    Trade agreement (transport and partnership agreements) 
    •    General terms and conditions 
    •    Service contracts (e.g. consultancy) 
       
  • Drawing up model contracts. 
  • Helping with the negotiation of contracts and agreements. 
  • Providing legal advice and recommendations for ad hoc legal questions asked by the business. 
  • Helping with the implementation of concrete projects that concern the company’s activities. 
  • Managing the relations with law firms as and where required. 
  • Developing contract processes. 

 

  • You have a master’s degree in law. 
  • You have 7 – 10 years of experience as a legal counsel in a law firm or a company. 
  • You have acquired thorough knowledge of contract law and commercial law; knowledge of transport law would be a plus. 
  • You are bilingual (French-Dutch) with a very good knowledge of English. 
  • You can become a real legal partner for the business. 
  • You are well organized and result-oriented. 
  • You are pragmatic and proactive.
  • You are able to communicate easily at any level of the company structure and have good persuasion skills.
  • You are flexible and used to constantly changing environments.
  • You have natural people management skills.

  • You get the chance to grow and to launch your career in a booming company.
  • You get attractive pay with fine fringe benefits. 
  • You will be joining a young and dynamic company. Things move forward rapidly, with all sorts of constant changes, opening up prospects for your career at all times. 
  • You will receive thorough training from the outset together with all the coaching you need to get started, and subsequently every opportunity to develop your talents further. 
  • You may work independently and free of the boundaries of time – even from home or at a location that is better suited now and then.
