WorkSafeNB is a Crown corporation committed to promoting healthy and safe workplaces for New Brunswick’s workers and employers. While the priority is preventing workplace injuries and occupational disease, WorkSafeNB provides comprehensive rehabilitation, return to work services, and fair compensation benefits when these do occur. We are expanding our legal department with a new position – a Commercial Legal Counsel – as part of our strategy to continue to provide the guidance, leadership, and sound legal advice necessary to maintain WorkSafeNB’s culture of excellence and caring.

 

The Commercial Legal Counsel will report to the Associate General Counsel and will serve as a lead commercial lawyer for WorkSafeNB. The Counsel will lead the company’s preparation, review, negotiation, and process of contracts, including implementation of contract and document management systems and will support process improvement initiatives in this regard. The Counsel will be responsible for negotiating, writing, reviewing, summarizing, researching, and executing a wide variety of vendor and procurement agreements within a public procurement environment. Experience in federal, provincial, and/or municipal government procurement processes is highly preferred.

If you are a member of the Law Society of New Brunswick, with a passion for continuous improvement and finding practical business solutions to complex challenges, WorkSafeNB offers you an opportunity to make a substantial impact on a change-ready organization, while supporting a new and energized leadership team. Bilingualism (strong written and spoken English and French) is a definite asset.

WorkSafeNB will provide support in its recruitment processes to applicants with disabilities, including accommodation that takes into account an applicant’s accessibility needs. If you require accommodation in order to participate as a candidate in the recruitment process, please contact accommodate@kbrs.ca or communicate your needs to the recruitment professional named in the job description.
