Legal Counsel – IT and Digitalisation
Work location: Kraków

Job description:

An excellent opportunity for a legal counsel who wants to work on IT projects, IT contracting and further explore new areas of the law and continue to grow their knowledge of Artificial Intelligence and Digitalisation, translating that into practical, actionable best practice. You’ll help to put this developing team on the map across Shell and in doing so, grow your own reputation.
What’s the role?
You’ll be helping Shell to explore the future of energy and contributing to building a community of IT-savvy lawyers who have the potential to become a very valuable part of our Legal domain.
Your role will be to advise, draft and negotiate with internal and external parties globally, providing Shell IT, Shell’s Contracting and Procurement organisation and Shell’s Digital Strategy and Digital Centre of Expertise with a broad-range of IT-related agreements. You’ll sharpen your already-impressive knowledge of new and emerging digital technologies, such as artificial intelligence, blockchain, the internet of things and robotics; it’s vital you can advise on new business models and commercial opportunities in these areas, with a keen eye for legal risks, pitfalls and mitigation strategies.

A key part of the role is to cultivate and sustain relationships both within legal and across the world of Shell; by promoting awareness of what we do, you’ll help the team to become widely recognised for their expertise.
Whilst the role is based in Krakow, the Digital Centre of Expertise is located in Houston, Texas, London, UK, Amsterdam, NL; and Bangalore, India. In addition to working virtually, the role may require travel on a relatively frequent basis, especially to one or more of these locations.


What we need from you?
We’re keen to hear from men and women who can deliver commercially focused solutions on projects with both complex legal and technical elements. Life moves fast at Shell, so you need to be able to balance conflicting priorities and be comfortable pursuing commercially focused risk-based solutions against an ever-evolving legal and regulatory framework.
On top of that, your CV includes as many as possible of the following:


  • Post-qualification experience in IT law and general commercial law;
  • Firm grasp of all areas of commercial and IT legal issues under different legal systems (common law and civil law); 
  • Experience working with businesses to deliver timely, cost-effective, commercially-focused legal services; 
  • Experience of working in an Agile environment.
It’s your personal skills that will make all the difference. Positive and proactive, you’re a natural collaborator – someone who can cultivate strong professional networks and operate effectively in a corporate, team-focused environment. You’re accomplished at bringing out the best in others too, whether that’s supporting and coaching others or influencing and negotiating with key stakeholders and decision-makers.
Of course, you’ll need to convince us you have a keen interest in new technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain, the Internet of Things and that you’re conversant with the associated legal implications. As well as being able to quickly grasp technical detail, working directly with experts in their field, it’s vital that you have the all-round communication skills to translate that information into language that’s readily understood by non-technical clients and colleagues.
