This will be your future team:
Our Global Legal Network team is a small family of legal professionals with diverse cultures and languages located in Prague. We have the exclusive aim to provide quality legal support to our internal Accenture operations teams (Procurement, Workplace, HR, etc.), mainly in Europe. We never get bored, as every day brings new situations, tasks and challenges. Each member of our team has his/her own tasks to complete but whenever the situation requires we support each other or back up our colleagues. We care about teammates and we also like gathering out of the office for team/company events.
This will be your future role:

You will guide internal stakeholders in managing contractual relationships with suppliers and matters related to local compliance by using your expert knowledge in local law and applying the company policies/rules and corporate governance.
You will meet and interact with many interesting colleagues across the organization and will help them to understand our corporate policies and standards in order to jointly mitigate and manage the risk exposure for the company. You will learn how to react quickly, formulate your own point of view and deal with demanding stakeholders. Last but not least, you will have the opportunity to make our professional life easier and more exciting by bringing in your own creative and innovative ideas.
This is what you already have:
• Completed Law Degree, preferably from Germany, Austria or Switzerland
