  • You closely liaise and work with Group Legal Procurement and Local Corporate Legal to align on latest standards to apply and make recommendation to improve our contracting framework and drive best practices.
  • You have a Master degree in Law.
  • You have between 3 to 5 years’ experience of practice in major law firm and/or multinational company with experience in IT, digital and outsourcing commercial contract drafting, review and negotiation.
  • You are solution oriented, pragmatic and you’re able to translate procurement and business concepts into contract and frameworks.
  • You are a team player and are capable of guiding other professionals as a subject matter expert.
  • You understand in detail all the steps of a sourcing process and 3rd parties risk management.
  • You can demonstrate solid negotiation skills related to complex legal matters in contacts with both internal and external parties.
  • You do understand the importance to agree on SLA's with suppliers and stakeholders and of how to ensure tracking and reporting of supplier performance.
