  • Further developing a state-of-the-art contract management system (templates, know-how, filing system);
  • Contributing to the further development of a "legal reflex" in the company, e.g. by setting up legal training courses, providing legal tools (such as legal checklists, contract templates, etc.) to help the business partners work more autonomously.

You have strong communication skills, and you can act as a trusted advisor and a sparring partner for the business and the management based on your legal expertise.  

You can set priorities and provide pragmatic, client-oriented and simple solutions to complex problems. You have strong analytical skills, and you work efficiently and in a structured way. 

You are business minded and driven by results. You think in terms of solutions.
