Legal Counsel


We are looking for an all-round Legal Counsel with a track record in M&A and an international profile to support us with our global expansion. 

Dept is a fast-growing international digital agency. Part of that growth comes from acquisitions in Europe and the USA. And with that growth, we also continuously strengthen our corporate & legal structure, while keeping tight control over various contractual matters and compliance in general.  

We are looking for a counsel that is all-round and can work within these areas:

  • M&A (due diligence, structuring, contracting, financing)
  • Corporate governance and legal (re)structuring

  • Internal compliance with eg. labour law and GDPR

  • Are willing to travel very frequently and are fluent in (legal) English;
  • Have strong negotiating skills and can manage our extensive network of external legal counsels in over ten countries efficiently;
  • Are open to work 32 hours a week preferably;
  • Tackle things proactively with a solution-oriented and commercial mindset to structure our corporate backbone as we grow. You are good in building bridges and finding compromises;
  • Can perform under pressure and deadlines, with a strong filter for priorities. You don’t mind hard work and long hours that are sometimes needed;
  • Keep our legal and corporate housekeeping tidy and are super hands on in getting things done as a team player.


  • Dynamic and international environment in which you are the legal expert in managing our growth;
  • Direct reporting line to one of the MDs ensuring a key position in all M&A and legal activities;
  • Infrastructure to excel at work, with great office facilities and tools to work with;
