ILANZ, In-House Lawyers Association of New Zealand

Legal Counsel - Auckland

We’re all about making life’s sociable moments that little bit more special. We care for the people around us by providing food and beverage choices that help us make the most of life. Our work doesn’t stop here. We challenge ourselves to drive innovation in our products so that tomorrow may be better than today.

Within our Beer Spirits & Wine New Zealand business we are excited to be recruiting for a newly created position in the Legal team for a lawyer with 2 - 4 years post admission experience. This role will report to the General Counsel for BSW NZ and Global Markets, and will be based from our wonderful Freemans Bay office.

This is an exciting opportunity to support the New Zealand business unit on all day-to-day contractual and legal matters. In particular this role supports the marketing team reviewing all marketing and trade promotion materials.

As our new Legal Counsel your communication skills, commercial acumen, solutions focussed approach and collaborative style will set you up for success. On a day to day basis, there will be contract/advice support for marketing, sales and operations teams, as well as supporting the General Counsel with other project related matters across the business.

Experience with general corporate law, media and marketing law, intellectual property, the food code and consumer/competition law are preferable but not essential. This role will suit someone who is energised by supporting our business as it grows into new channels. No one day will be the same so your curiosity to challenge the status quo, implement process changes and get out of your comfort zone will be key to your enjoyment in the role and how you will contribute to long term success.

We believe our people have it in them to achieve something outstanding. By challenging ourselves to make a difference, we make our experience at Lion the best it can be. Start a conversation with us today.
