Hybrid Legal/Business Role
Travel Edge is a technology company specializing in the travel industry which was started over 13 years ago. For over a decade, we have been creating and fine-tuning the technology, marketing and operational processes that will redefine the travel industry. Travel Edge is also the largest luxury-focused agency in North America and has won numerous industry awards. Some may consider travel to be old school and dull. Travel Edge will make you think again. We run more like a start-up, where the teams are lean, and the work is challenging.
Lead by senior leaders who have years of experience in helping companies transform business through smarter marketing, technology and commerce programs, excluding the impacts of COVID-19, this company has sustained year-over-year double-digit growth for the past several years. Travel Edge is now seeking a Legal Counsel to add to its Legal Department. This individual will assist in a wide range of legal work including, commercial contracts, M&A transactions, IT/licensing, financings, compliance, employment law matters, litigation management and tax planning. In addition, this role requires that the candidate assist in developing business cases and participating in strategy and risk discussions with Senior Management. This position, located in downtown Toronto, will report to the General Counsel.
The ideal candidate will have 2-4 years of corporate / commercial experience gained at a well-respected law firm or corporation. A business degree or entrepreneurial mindset and an ability to strategize will be required. Although the General Counsel will provide mentoring, the ability to work independently and be resourceful will also be important to succeed in this role. As you will be dealing directly with business groups and executives, professionalism and strong interpersonal skills will be essential. Minimal travel will be required for this position.
This is an opportunity to join this exciting organization at the ground level. We can offer a competitive compensation package as well as an opportunity to participate in an employee travel program.
