  • This is an opportunity to contribute to the strategy, positioning and processes in an important area for a dynamic technology business across multiple jurisdictions. Candidates must be able to demonstrate good commercial judgment as well as being organised, efficient, and capable to provide high quality legal and compliance outcomes.

In both cases, we are looking for a rigorous work ethic, detailed analysis and reporting, conscientiousness to ensure correct compliance, and insights to identify opportunities to exceed the necessary. We do not see this as a defensive legal investment so much as a proactive investment in the ideas, analysis, research and driving leadership needed to be a pace-setting in our industry on carbon and other sustainability priorities
