Legal corporate counsel


Would you like to join a global organisation characterised by enthusiasm for the business, which has created a retail phenomenon that is recognisable throughout most of the world?

Would you like to be a central sparring partner and adviser in an ambitious organisation with great potential for development?

As a Legal Corporate Counsel with Zebra you will refer to the General Counsel and form part of Group Legal that has the overall responsibility for all legal issues worldwide.

You will have a versatile workday

Your day will be characterised by high speed – but also largely by flexibility, much variability and many ongoing projects. You will cooperate closely with the business and, thus, get a great contact network throughout the organisation – from top management, over local management of subsidiaries, to the rest of the business.

In your daily life ...
... you will be surrounded by committed and professionally competent colleagues and the overarching success criterion is to drive many ongoing projects independently and provide practical and relevant legal advice.

The company has a young, dynamic and entrepreneurial culture that is, at the same time, informal and driven by passion. The atmosphere at headquarters is international, and during a normal workday you will meet many different nationalities.

You are eager to work with inter alia:

  • The role as a sparring partner with a commercial mindset to the entire organisation
  • Legal advice and negotiations in connection with the conclusion of a wide number of different contract types
  • International cooperation with local lawyers and legal counsels
  • Management consultancy in connection with transactions and restructurings
  • Bank and financing agreements
  • IT contracts, including GDPR
  • Limited HR-related issues in relation to consultancy agreements for subsidiaries.

To be successful in this role

You have a theoretical education as a Master of Law or a Master of Business Law, perhaps a licence to practise law, as well as several years’ experience from a major law firm, preferably combined with a secondment or direct experience from an international in-house legal function.

You have a solid professional ballast, just as you are a competent generalist with experience performing some of the tasks mentioned above. At the same time, you are eager to understand the business in order to provide commercially oriented legal advice.

You should be willing to have a steep learning curve and, thus, you are not expected to have experience with all the tasks mentioned.

As a person you have a great desire to acquire new knowledge and to constantly become professionally more competent since this position involves a large area of responsibility. If you have a licence to practise law, it will be possible to retain this.

Does this sound just like you?
Please forward your application and CV. Please attach any relevant exam certificates, etc. We will handle all applications with discretion. Job interviews will be held on an ongoing basis.
