CLIENT : This is a rare General Counsel position, available for candidates looking to head up a division of a large and diverse oil and gas company.
ROLE : You will have a commercial reporting line to the CEO and be tasked with both establishing and developing the legal function.
The work will cover a broad spectrum of O&G sector work such as corporate, commercial, projects, construction, disputes, compliance and regulatory.
It will range from large deals such as M&A with extensive drafting and negotiating, and working with JV partners, down to more general day to day matters.
The role will also involve mentoring and training up junior staff.
CANDIDATE : It is essential that you have trained and qualified with a strong international standard law firm, and ideally on top of that, will have in-
house experience. It is a senior level role and candidates will need in excess of 15 years' PQE. Your skill set should have extensive experience in O&G and large projects work, as well corporate, commercial and standard in-house work.
It will be hugely beneficial to be based in the region already, although overseas applications will be considered - but only if you have distinct exposure to the Middle East market.
