Wavemaker is a billion dollar revenue agency that sits at the heart of GroupM and WPP. Our ambition is to be the most distinctive and admired media, content and technology agency in the world.

The Wavemaker Global team are looking for a Legal Counsel to join the Wavemaker Global commercial finance team. This role will be responsible for legal projects across the business on a global basis. The Legal Counsel will work closely with and report to our Global Legal Director and will also be required to liaise closely with the GroupM Global General Counsel.
