Joining our newly established Group Legal International department, which is part of our Legal, Business Ethics and IP organisation, you will be stationed at our local representation office in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

As our new senior legal counsel, you will be providing effective and timely guidance to the commercial and functional teams on business transactions and support the development and execution of regional growth or performance projects. Moreover, you support the General Counsel by participating in business reviews, strategic planning and key initiatives in the markets.

Furthermore, you will participate in virtual team meetings regularly, and once a year, we meet in person to follow up on the strategy and define new goals together.
