Passion for innovative technologies that shape the world

ANDRITZ is an international technology group that has been in business for more than 180 years, providing plants, systems, equipment, and services for various industries with sales in 2022 of €7.5 Billion. The company is one of the technology and global market leaders in the hydropower business, the pulp and paper industry, the metal working and steel industries, and in solid/liquid separation in the municipal and industrial segments.  In all of our business areas we are focused on innovative technologies that have a positive impact on our planet.  For more information visit www.andritz.com

Our client, ANDRITZ, employs over 1200 people in Canada as part of the Andritz Group Legal Department, which includes nearly 50 lawyers worldwide.  In anticipation of growth and an increased workload, Andritz is creating a Legal Counsel position within its existing legal team in Canada.

Reporting to the Director of Legal Affairs for Canada, you will be part of a team of two lawyers in Canada, seven lawyers across North America, and the overall global ANDRITZ legal team. While your day-to-day work will be primarily focus on supporting Canadian operations related to hydroelectric power generation, you will also be involved in legal matters related to other groups, including pulp and paper, separation, and metals. In particular, you will provide legal support to the business units: primarily in commercial and construction law, but also in labour and employment law. You will draft, revise and interpret a variety of commercial contracts, including customer contracts, engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contracts, service agreements and more. You will provide support to the Human Resources and Labour Relations departments in the event of dismissals, sanctions, negotiation of collective agreements, etc. (without, however, having to make representations). You will also provide support in dispute management and litigation (with external counsel when relevant) and assist the Director with transactions.

Are you interested in joining an entrepreneurial environment in the fast-growing renewable energies sector? Do you enjoy being at the heart of the action, are self-reliant and able to propose practical solutions that protect the company while facilitating the achievement of business objectives? If so, we would love to speak with you! You need to be licensed to practice law in a Canadian province, have a good working knowledge of French and have knowledge of or experience in civil law to qualify. Ref.: #32483.

This is a mandate entrusted exclusively to ZSA. CVs sent to or contacts made with Andritz will be forwarded to ZSA for analysis.
