French Legal Counsel
The legal department currently consists of eleven legal counsels under the supervision of the general counsel. Because of the maternity leave of a legal counsel, we are interested to meet candidates to join their team on a temporary basis for at least 5 months. However, considering the enormous growth in France, it is possible that your contract can be extended to expand the team further.
Their legal department supports the international headquarter in Hoofddorp and the operations of all markets in the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, France and Spain. They have an entrepreneurial, dynamic, professional but informal business culture and proud and highly motivated colleagues. In June 2016 Basic-Fit was listed on Euronext Amsterdam.
Basic-Fit is looking for a legal counsel for our French market. You will report to the General Counsel and will work closely with the two other French legal counsels and the French operation to help them with their expansion plans. Your main responsibilities will be reviewing, drafting and negotiating of real estate agreements related to the opening of our new clubs. In addition, you could work on a variety of commercial contracts and legal matters, such as claims and liability or consumer law.
This is an incredible time to join Basic-Fit. Are you ready to join the Basic-Fit team with big plans for the future? You should at least have:
•A law degree from a university in France;
•Native knowledge in French and fluency in English, additional knowledge of Spanish and/or Dutch is an advantage;
•At least 4 years relevant working experience, gained as a lawyer and / or in house counsel, in France;
•Experience with real estate is a pre.
We are looking for people who are:
•Action-oriented - you have an insatiable urge to get things done;
•Down to earth - you don’t hide behind big words or empty promises;
•Open - you tell it like it is and are completely transparent in everything you do;
•Friendly - you are always eager to help and bring a smile;
•Structured, organised, self-starting and highly motivated;
•Able to work with great responsibility and under high pressure.
