PSA Antwerp’s story began in 2002, with the merger of two-well established port operators, Hessenatie and Noord Natie, each bringing together a wealth of experience and hundreds of years of port operating history. This single entity was subsequently brought under the umbrella of Singapore-based PSA International, one of the largest port groups in the world specialized in container handling.

The PSA Group participates in port projects across Asia, Europe and the Americas with flagship operations in PSA Singapore Terminals and PSA Antwerp. As the port operator of choice in the world's gateway hubs, PSA currently processes some 220,000 containers per day, which amounted to a total for 2018 of 81 million TEUs (twenty foot equivalent units). The terminal in Singapore accounts for almost half of this volume. The Belgian PSA Antwerp, PSA’s largest investment outside of Singapore, processed around 10.3 million TEUs in 2018. PSA Antwerp is referred to as the PSA group’s second flagship.

In Antwerp, PSA operates 3 container terminals: MPET at Deurganck dock (a joint venture between PSA Antwerp and TIL), Noordzee Terminal and Europa Terminal). Over 80% of all containers coming into Antwerp, pass through one of these terminals. In addition to container handling, PSA is also active in general cargo handling on the PSA Breakbulk Terminal. 

PSA can draw upon a talented pool of experience and expertise of a workforce of approximately 3,000 employees in Antwerp to manage our complex operations. Thanks to their hard work and motivation, PSA Antwerp is playing a significant part in making the group’s slogan, ‘The World’s Port of Call’ a reality.

As Legal Counsel you will be responsible for legal matters for the Belgian entities of PSA. Occasionally you will be asked to provide legal support for PSA entities from other regions.

The job covers a broad number of legal issues pertaining to the business and includes in any event the following activities:

  • Giving sound yet highly practical legal advice in order to support the operations and ensure their compliance with legal requirements.
  • Reviewing, drafting and finalizing commercial agreements (such as agreements with customers and suppliers, financing agreements and concession agreements) on the best possible commercial terms.
  • Assisting management in M&A related agreements and joint venture agreements.
  • Providing regulatory and compliance advice, and be a motivator and energizer for a strong culture of integrity and compliance.
  • Creating legal forms and best practices.

The legal counsel will report to the Regional Legal Counsel PSA EuroMed & Americas.

  • Education: Master in Law (preferably Belgian law qualified)
  • Experience: Between approximately 5 to 10 years of working experience in an international context, preferably in the commercial and/or corporate / financial law department of a well-reputed law firm or in the legal department of a multinational company.
  • Experience with procurement contracts and project/corporate financing documentation and structuring is a plus.
  • Languages: Excellent knowledge of Dutch and English.   


  • Driven, ambitious and willing to take on responsibilities.
  • Business oriented, practical, pragmatic and risk aware working style
  • Team player, but able to work autonomously.
  • Excellent analytical skills, good in computing (especially the most used MS Office applications).
