For Sandvik Machining Solutions (SMS), we are now looking for a business-minded, experienced, and socially confident Legal M&A Counsel to strengthen our team as we further accelerate our M&A agenda. This is a versatile position, with excellent opportunities for personal development, right in the center of our multinational business. On top of this, you will have the opportunity to work with experienced business developers and key strategic initiatives as we take part in shaping the new direction of Sandvik Group.
We have an exciting portfolio that holds some of the strongest brands in the market, and as a leading supplier in the global cutting tool industry, we are proud to serve our customers with products and solutions for optimized productivity and profitability. If you are as passionate as we are when it comes to development and strategic business drivers and want to be part of the team that executes on the strategic agenda – then you are the one we need for this position!
About the team
With an overall business strategy that aims for continuous development – both organically and through corporate acquisitions – our legal function plays a key role. We support the business in achieving objectives and driving growth by providing pragmatic legal advice and proactively assessing and mitigating risks. This requires accuracy, strong integrity, and solid business understanding, as well as proficiency across many legal and compliance disciplines.
About the job
In this position, you will have the opportunity to practice your dedication to corporate and commercial law as you contribute to strategic transactions, investments, joint ventures, and various projects. You take responsibility and ambitiously drive your own assignments, and you challenge us to view things from a different perspective and to discuss alternative solutions. You report directly to the Head of Legal M&A and are located in Stockholm. The role may involve occasional international travel.
Your background and character
We are looking for someone with a Swedish Law degree (Jur. Kand) or an equivalent international law degree and at least seven years’ experience of legal M&A work - either from a reputable business law firm or within a corporate in-house legal organization (in-house experience is a plus). You have the legal experience needed to act independently and to find legally adequate solutions to various situations and you are a seasoned project manager. Experience from competition law is also advantageous. As we act in a global setting, you need excellent communication skills in English, verbally and in writing.
Key for this role is your ability to gain trust both by building long-term personal relationships and by offering advice and guidance based on legal experience, sound judgment and a thorough business understanding. Accordingly, we place great value on your personal qualities, characterized by your practical, analytical and decisive mindset. You are also a true team player with a strong drive to get things done.
