Viavera Recruitment is a selection and recruitment agency offering the following position at our client, a rapidly growing engineering group in sustainable energy projects: Jr International Contract Manager.

You will be part of the Legal department (+/- 10 people) and more specifically you will join a sub-team responsible for all contracts related to ongoing and future sustainable energy projects, both in Belgium and gradually also abroad (Europe, Japan & US):

The contracts are drawn up between our client and its project partners, suppliers and/or subcontractors. Your work occurs in the various phases of the project: in the preparatory tendering phase, at the project start and the transfer at the end of the project.

Contract conditions are already prepared in the tender phase, and are further finalized once the parties have been selected and the project starts. At the end of the project, the transfer in ownership and operation is contractually handled.

More specifically, this would be the varied task package:

  • The content of the contracts is prepared by the Technology team. As a contract expert you will advise, check, change and supplement with regard to the legal aspects, you add the necessary legal documents, etc.

  • You take into account the locally applicable rules for projects abroad, for which you do your research and consult locally.

  • You help prepare the legal construction of the project between the different partners, with our client being the leader of the consortium in almost all cases.

  • You manage all communication with the parties involved and you are the point of contact for the matters for which you are responsible. Good stakeholder management is indispensable in this position!

  • You follow up on disputes or claims and minimize their impact, but above all you support to avoid these risks.

  • You manage all documents in a Sharepoint platform and follow strict version management.

  • You pay attention to knowledge management, for example logging lessons learned or processing them in templates or standards.

For this role we are looking for someone with the following background and competences:

  • You have obtained a Master of Laws with 1-3 years of experience

  • You have a very good knowledge of English and a good knowledge of Dutch or (/and) French.

  • An internship at the bar of lawyers (either or not early terminated) is a big plus

  • You have a first experience with writing/adapting contract clauses in a commercial context

  • A first experience with disputes is a big plus

  • You are analytical, detail-oriented, critical and methodical

  • You are communicative and a good negotiator

  • You are resistant to stress, you even perform better under pressure of deadlines

  • You have a good knowledge of MS Office, knowledge of Sharepoint is a plus

  • You have a keen interest in engineering projects and the sustainable energy sector

  • Fast growing engineering organization in sustainable energy

  • Great learning opportunity for a junior! You will be supported by the knowledge of your senior colleagues but very quickly you take up your own projects

  • Attractive salary and fringe benefits including a company car

  • Challenging job, but with a good work-life balance

  • International context and non-commercial culture where quality comes first

  • Extensive possibilities for continuous training and education
