Legal Counsel for Global Agreements (m/f/d)

Job Description

Siemens is a global powerhouse focusing on the areas of electrification, automation and digitalization. One of the world’s largest producers of energy-efficient, resource-saving technologies, Siemens is a leading supplier of systems for power generation and transmission as well as medical diagnosis. In infrastructure and industry solutions the company plays a pioneering role.
Are you ready to be part of the change?

What role will you play?
You will be part of a very dynamic, international and growing Hub organization in the Legal department of Siemens Portugal. The Hub currently consists of 4 colleagues (with two additional open positions). The Hub serves various countries and businesses around the world. As this is still a new concept you have the exciting opportunity to shape this promising concept for the future. 
Your job will be very diverse and interesting and offers the opportunity to get an excellent overview of what Siemens does. The different incoming tasks are distributed amongst the Hub team members according to their level of experience and skills. You will be the direct point of contact for the business colleagues in your area of responsibility. You will support the business in commercial transactions, from the drafting process to contract execution. Requests include general commercial advise such as reviewing/ drafting/ negotiating contracts, preparing legal risk analyses for “Limits of Authority” internal approval processes and claim management. The main focus of the tasks will be the counselling of "Global Frame Agreements", which form the basis for the business with international top tier corporate customers and include product sales as well as project business. In addition, the job includes coordination with various Siemens units at management level and collaboration with Siemens regional entities. You will also conduct contract management training and contribute to new business models/concepts in the Global Agreement area. 
Most contracts and negotiations are in English language. However, some German companies prefer German as contract and negotiation language. If you are not fluent in German these contracts might be taken over by another Hub team member.

How does that sound? Our perfect candidate must be/ have…
-Fully qualified lawyer with excellent European academic credentials.
-Fluency in written and spoken English is a must (including ability to draft and negotiate contracts in both languages).
-Knowledge of German language and German law is a plus. Preferably you have been advising on German law and/ or you have studied German law.
-Basic communication skills in Portuguese are a plus.
-Experience of at least 5 years in the drafting/review/negotiation of contracts in a law firm or as part of an inhouse legal team is essential.
