The team provides comprehensive legal support to our business in the Netherlands, including client contract negotiations, advice on delivery issues, legal compliance advice and dispute resolution.


A successful candidate will be working with the Dutch Legal team from our office based in Krakow or Wroclaw, Poland. We are also willing to consider candidates from other locations in Poland for a remote work employment (if the candidate proves competencies required for this type of working system).


As a commercial lawyer, you will work on client contract negotiations, bid strategy, contract reviews and be part of the deal review and approval process. The deals include framework agreements, consulting agreements, digital and cloud services agreements, IT infrastructure and managed services agreements. We work in the private and public sectors. You may also advise on some post signature (delivery) matters, and you may do some sub-contracts and procurement work, although the Legal team prioritises legal work that contributes to business growth. You may also work on specific legal projects, dispute resolution and legal compliance matters.  


Main accountabilities:

  • Review and negotiation of contracts such as Master Services Agreements, Outsourcing & BPO Agreements, Software Licenses, Subcontracting Agreements, Data Protection Agreements, Agreements with Alliance partners, Suppliers, System Integration Agreements and Procurement Agreements. This involves negotiations directly with the clients and their attorneys, and requires close interaction with the various departments of the company, including the business, finance and delivery teams
  • Preparing responses on the contract terms for Request for Proposals, including those related to public sector, and identifying and articulating the legal and business risks
  • Review and management of Inter Company Agreements between various group companies
  • Ensure compliance with laws and company policies while supporting business
  • Provide support to legal team members from other jurisdictions, where required
  • Participation in trainings, development related activities and other initiatives of the legal department
  • The successful candidate will work on all phases of deals, ranging from the proposal/bid review stages, right through to final negotiation and post signature issues

Your team

You will be part of the Global Legal Center (GLC) team, based in Poland, which consists of fully qualified Legal advisors and lawyers and is headed by the Head of GLC Poland. The team delivers high quality and pragmatic legal services to all parts of our business in a number of different countries and jurisdictions. You will also be part of Capgemini’s global Legal team, with over 200 lawyers world-wide.

Team spirit and good work environment. Professional development.  Accelerated career progression.  It’s all on offer at Capgemini. And although collaboration is at the core of the way we work, we also recognise individual needs with a flexible benefits package you can tailor to suit your needs.


At Capgemini, we help organisations across the world become more agile, more competitive and more successful.
