Brooke has launched its ambitious new five-year global strategy following a sustained period of outstanding growth in improving the health and wellbeing of working horses, donkeys and mules across the world. We have achieved this by engaging effectively with communities for better welfare, treatment and veterinary services and through the successful lobbying of key global players to change policy and practice for the mutual benefit of both the animals and their owners – the millions of people whose livelihoods depend on them.
Brooke currently reaches 2 million working animals benefitting 12 million people.
We actively recruit talented individuals who can bring their professional expertise to a growing organisation which prides itself on being a leading animal welfare INGO operating across a growing number of countries in Africa, Latin America and Asia.
We are looking for an experienced commercial contracts lawyer to join us at an exciting time of expansion for Brooke. The main responsibilities will be to advise on and negotiate a very wide range of commercial contracts with the main focus being on technology contracts.
Other key contracts will be with Brooke’s business partners and with other NGOs and charities with whom Brooke works.
The role can be flexible to permit the successful candidate to broaden their experience of advising a leading charity.
You will need to have a law degree and have extensive experience of working at a senior level within a legal department, advising on and negotiating commercial contracts.
You will be commercially minded with excellent experience in advising on legal risks, actions to take to mitigate those risks and negotiation strategies.
You will take the initiative to keep up to date with new areas of law and identify any impact on Brooke.
