Are you looking for your next career step? Are you looking for a fast-paced organisation that wants to support your growth and development? If so, please read on…

Herbalife Nutrition is looking for a circa. 2-3 years PQE Legal Counsel to join its successful and dynamic multi-national food nutrition business.

You’ll be exposed to a wide variety of legal work, principally covering contractual, commercial, sponsorship, regulatory, dispute management, IP, employment, real estate, advertising claims and compliance matters. As an integral part of a 12-person strong EMEA legal team (within a region of more than 2500 employees), you’ll develop knowledge and expertise of the legal landscape by closely working with our business operations across more than 50 countries in the EMEA region. Initially the role will have greater focus on markets in Spain, Portugal, the Nordics, Germany, Austria, Lebanon and Greece but these do and will vary from time to time.

We will work with you to develop your technical skills and leadership and can encourage your growth through the team’s knowledge, support and close-knit collegiate nature, together through more structured training as needed.

What are we looking for?

You’ll be a solicitor with post qualification experience ideally from a known commercial law firm and/or in-house legal department.

We want you to be confident working proactively and autonomously, you should have a broad knowledge of international business practices and a strong customer and results orientation. You’ll be faced with identifying potential legal, public, government or regulatory issues as well as being required to be pragmatic and commercially focussed. You’ll need to be able to identify appropriate solutions based on experience, facts and a knowledge of the business and will be called upon to exercise strong judgment and be able to effectively influence stakeholders at different levels accordingly.

Critically you’ll thrive on responsibility, be able to demonstrate an energetic, practical and dynamic approach, be flexible and culturally sensitive. You’ll cover a broad range of issues, be prepared to adapt to different legal subject-matter in multiple jurisdictions and in so doing, be able to prioritise a broad and full workload.

Strong inter-personal skills, a collaborative approach and being a strong team player are essential. 

Experience operating in the consumer sector or similarly a dynamic and fast-moving sector, preferably at an international level would be an advantage.
