  • Excellent knowledge and understanding of corporate law and procedures
  • High degree of professional ethics and integrity
  • Sound judgement and ability to analyse situations and information
  • Outstanding communication skills
  • Experience and understanding of dealing with multiple international jurisdictions and implication on structure of agreements

The role provides an outstanding opportunity to join a well-established business at an exciting time in its growth and play a key role in driving the business toward its corporate goal.

A package will be offered for this role which reflects the seniority of the role.
