Associate Legal Counsel
The Office of the General Counsel (OGC) is a very active global group with staff in New York, Budapest and London. OGC focuses in the short term on transactional legal advice and compliance; in the medium term on policy making and good governance; and in the long term on helping make OSF an enduring philanthropy. OGC serves as a resource for informed decision-making providing independent, timely and thoughtful advice on the broad range of legal issues that our programmes, departments, boards and legal entities face as they pursue their visions of change. It looks to prevent legal problems and solve those that occur, to facilitate transactions, and to build structures that consider the longer-term impacts of a transaction, litigation, governance issue or other corporate matter.
The Associate General Counsel is a full-time position based in London that works on matters that include advising staff and senior management on employment matters, contracts, grants, business operations, organisational policies, governance, and regulatory compliance, as well as providing staff training with respect to these areas. Work is carried out both independently and in teams.
