As Senior Managing Counsel - Employment EMEA you will provide support and expert legal advice on all aspects of Employment Law and human resources practice areas, across 16 regions. The Senior Employment Counsel will be part of the Global Legal Department and report directly to the Director Employment Law. This role will be the go-to person for the HR department to offer insight into, and advice about, legal matters relating to local law across the regions.
As Senior Managing Counsel - Employment EMEA, you will combine both academic and hands-on knowledge of Law with strong interpersonal skills. You will demonstrate the ability (and desire) to work independently and flexibly in Booking.com’s fast-changing environment.
