Number of Positions: 1
Salary: Will be determined based on education and experience
Close Date: August 6, 2018
Tired of litigation and looking to branch out into labour arbitrations and corporate commercial work? Or perhaps you’d like to use your knowledge and experience in these areas while working with a dynamic business? SaskTel has an opportunity for you to work on litigation and labour and employment matters while also providing corporate-commercial advice to SaskTel and its subsidiaries to assist in meeting their business and service goals.
Delivering first-rate communications to the people of Saskatchewan for more than 110 years, SaskTel is a major player in the Information & Communications Technology sector. Operating as a provincial Crown Corporation, SaskTel competes with local and national businesses, while giving back to our province through community initiatives. Our workforce is comprised of approximately 4,000 union and non-union employees throughout the province of Saskatchewan and we focus on providing great customer experience and quality products. People really like to work here and we think you will too.
We are looking for a dynamic and enthusiastic Associate Corporate Counsel to join our legal team at our head office in Regina. This is a full time permanent position. As a strategic member of the Corporate Counsel team, during your first year, you will be the “go-to” person for all labour and human resources advice and will handle litigation and labour arbitrations on behalf of SaskTel and its subsidiaries. You will be expected to run your own litigation and arbitrations, as well as be responsible for corporate commercial work including negotiating, reviewing and approving contracts; creating practices and procedures while ensuring compliance with relevant legislation and legal influences; and communicating and negotiating with SaskTel’s business partners. Following the first year, you will retain some labour and employment responsibilities and litigation files, but will also have the opportunity to expand your responsibilities to corporate commercial work.
Our legal team prides itself on leveraging our legal skills and business acumen to find solutions to business problems while providing legal direction and advice to the SaskTel management team. We’re looking for someone who takes pride in their work and wants to make a difference, just like us. In the past, lawyers with a passion for our business have had the opportunity to advance in many different areas. We are also prepared to grow someone with only 3 to 5 years experience into the Associate Corporate Counsel role, starting in a more entry level position.
