Legal & Ext Relations
Legal Counsel
North Island, NZ
Permanent Full Time

We’re all about making life’s sociable moments that little bit more special. We care for the people around us by providing food and beverage choices that help us make the most of life. Our work doesn’t stop here. We challenge ourselves to drive innovation in our products so that tomorrow may be better than today.


Within our Lion New Zealand business, we have a fantastic opportunity for a lawyer with 2 – 4 years post admission experience. This role will report to the Senior Legal Counsel for Lion New Zealand, and with hybrid working, will be based from our Fanshawe St office.


This is an exciting in-house role, supporting our NZ business unit on day-to-day contractual and legal matters, in particular supporting the marketing team with brand campaign launches, trade promotions, intellectual property matters and managing key brand partner and sponsorship agreements.


As our Legal Counsel your communication skills, commercial acumen, solutions focussed approach and collaborative style will set you up for success. On a day to day basis, you’ll be required to provide pragmatic and strategic advice and legal support for our marketing, sales and operations teams, as well as supporting the Senior Legal Counsel with other key business projects.


Experience with general corporate law, media and marketing law, intellectual property and consumer/competition law experience are all preferable but not essential.


This role will suit someone who is energised by supporting our wider NZ business on a range of complex and innovative projects. No one day will be the same so your curiosity to challenge the status quo, implement process changes and get out of your comfort zone will be key to your enjoyment in the role and how you will contribute to long term success.


We believe our people have it in them to achieve something outstanding. By challenging ourselves to make a difference, we make our experience at Lion the best it can be. Start a conversation with us today.
