As Deputy GC, you will work closely with the Chief Legal Officer to handle complex regulatory, environmental, litigation, and transactional matters.

In this role you will:

  • Advise on state/federal regulatory and environmental compliance
  • Negotiate and draft key agreements and applications
  • Oversee legal matters for U.S. facilities and operations
  • Mitigate legal risks and partner with leadership on decision-making

    • Juris Doctor from an accredited law school
    • Licensed to practice law in at least one U.S. state
    • 20+ years legal experience 
    • Background in transactional law, commercial agreements, and mergers & acquisitions
    • Excellent communication and presentation abilities
    • Decisive negotiation and decision-making skills
    • Entrepreneurial outlook focused on opportunities rather than risk avoidance

This global mining leader provides an exciting opportunity to use your technical background and passion for the energy transition to make a significant impact. With the right experience, you will have a clear path to promotion to GC/CLO within 2-5 years.

Join a collaborative legal team at the intersection of business, law, and cutting-edge mining. Help develop policies and strategies that allow sustainable growth and best-in-class governance.
