Do you want to play a vital role in a modern legal department while people are becoming healthier and happier? As a Senior Legal Counsel, you will be a crucial part of a global data-driven company by advising and reducing legal complexity while allowing innovation to happen with respect to compliance. Your mindset is to build a modern legal department where boring manual tasks are eliminated with the advantage of automated processes giving you the time to deliver valuable insights to stakeholders on complex legal matters such as AI regulation, GDPR, or MDR.

  • Offer practical and business-oriented legal advice, translating complex regulations into actionable steps and best practices for the company's digital content and products.



  • You have either a Cand.merc.(jur.) or Cand.jur.
  • We expect 3-6 years of relevant working experience within the area of IT law and in particular GDPR and consumer legislation.
  • Experience with areas such as MDR, risk management, and regulatory compliance is a plus.
  • As you will be working closely with commercial teams as well as the product- & tech teams, the ability to communicate complex issues to non-legal stakeholders is important.
  • You have a go-getter attitude and a desire to learn quickly, ready to hit the ground running and contribute to Lenus' success.
  • You enjoy having great autonomy and flexibility in your work life where you value the possibility to join a yoga class in the morning or a padel match in the afternoon.

We encourage you to apply even if you don't tick all the boxes.
