About the Role:
Opportunities of this nature do not come along often!
Reporting to the CEO, this newly created General Counsel position will be responsible for all of Rockit’s commercial legal advice; the global licensing portfolio – for growing, marketing and distribution of Rockit branded apples; leading the management of extensive Intellectual Property Rights; developing legal strategies for disputes; maintaining high standards of Corporate Governance; and acting as Legal Lead on strategic business projects.
Now you’re seriously excited I know!...
Incorporating a multitude of legal dimensions – be it resources, global, partnerships, commercial or employment law, this is a rare and very ‘real’ opportunity to build skills in international intellectual property, working with a world-renowned IP legal firm.
Your sound corporate and commercial law background goes without saying!
Your current NZLS Practising Certificate is imperative. This, along with your LLB, will be complemented with at least 8+ years in the above-mentioned commercial sphere.
As a current Senior Legal Counsel or GC, you understand the need for high quality, customer centric, and heavy hitting legal advice.
Inhouse, private practice or a blend – it is the commercial legal savvy you will bring. You may have other languages to support your advanced written and spoken English, and possibly some Horticulture exposure. However, you will have sound project management, analytical and numeracy skills, be strategic, and have oodles of intelligence.
With resilience being your middle name - ongoing change, fast paced growth, and business pressures that come with that, get you 100% pumped!
