For Sandvik Group, we are now looking for a driven and forward-thinking Legal Counsel to join our Group Legal Support team. We offer you a rewarding and exciting job in a decentralized organization and the chance to work with passionate colleagues in a truly global environment.

Job summary
As Legal Counsel within our Group Legal Support, you provide general legal support with regard to any legal matters at Group level – where your main focus is to provide legal support to, and manage risk for, Group IT (mainly IT sourcing) and Group indirect sourcing, including GDPR related issues. You give support on Group level in general corporate matters, as well as in other matters at Group level in our decentralized organization. As part of your role, you also develop and set common policies and processes.

In this position, you report to the Vice President of Group Legal Support, and you are located at our headquarters at World Trade Center in Stockholm.

Your profile
You have a Master of Law, and at least seven years of professional experience from a law firm or an in-house role – preferably in an international organization. You also have experience from managing external legal resources effectively and cost-efficiently, as well as from managing, implementing and responding positively to change in an adaptive and innovative manner. Furthermore, you have proven ability to utilize skills in various legal areas; especially IT sourcing, indirect sourcing and GDPR but also within corporate law and other matters typically managed on group level in a decentralized organization. Experienced in managing solutions, delivery and analysis of intricate issues in a complex organization is a merit.

We place great value on your personal qualities in this recruitment, characterized by your analytical, practical, pragmatic and decisive mindset, as well as your honest and hands-on approach. Your excellent interpersonal communication skills enable you to gain trust - both by building long-term relationships and by offering advice and guidance beyond legal aspects, based on sound judgment and a thorough business understanding. As a team-player, you enjoy cooperating with others, but you also have the motivation to work independently and take ownership of your responsibilities and take an active and proactive role within your area of responsibility. Operating in a constantly changing environment, you are attentive to details and have the will and ability to identify relevant facts and risks.
