A need has arisen for a senior legal counsel to operate as Head of Corporate and Project Finance to be based in the company headquarters in the South of France supporting the Finance department, in particular the Integrated Treasury. The successful candidate will provide appropriate legal support to ensure that the objectives of the Finance team are implemented, and that the group as a whole has access to funding and hedging on the best possible terms whilst remaining compliant with the applicable regulations. He/she will manage relationships with different stakeholders representing the finance team within the context of transactions and negotiations, conducting risk management, and proactively ensuring the existence and use of efficient processes. The successful candidate will also have the prospect of collaboratively managing a small team.
You will demonstrate a minimum of 10 years’ relevant legal experience acquired in law firms and/or in-house, with solid experience in Finance law and regulation, particularly in the area of Project and Corporate Finance.

Acting as a genuine team player will be essential to thrive within the team’s corporate culture, as well as fluency in English (and ideally another European language).
