Reporting to the Division Lead Counsel, you will ensure the success of the Kusile Reporting Project in close collaboration with our businesses Motion Traction and Motion System Drives.

  • Liaise with the Legal Department regarding major claims and critical developments in sales, procurement and throughout the project lifecycle. Support the Division Lead Counsel in dispute resolution and litigation activities
  • Actively participate in the risk review and project reviews processes from a contractual and risk perspective and ensure adherence to the relevant instructions

Your background

  • Minimum seven years of experience in bids, negotiations and contract management for complex (international) projects,
  • Proven track record in compliance matters (incl. investigations),
  • Project management skills, preferably gained in a complex industrial environment,
