Company: Nike, Inc.
Location: Beaverton
Posted on: May 3, 2021

Job Description:


We're looking for an Assistant General Counsel to join our Global Supply Chain and Sustainability legal team at Nike's World Headquarters. This role is our lead lawyer for Nike's Global Operations and Logistics, Social & Community Impact, and Aviation teams. We think of Legal as Nike's offensive line, and our new AGC will leverage legal expertise, critical thinking skills, team mentality and a bias for action to keep those functions advancing down the field.


You will provide strategic legal advice to our business leaders and teams on issues ranging from innovative last mile consumer experiences to helping kids discover the joy of sport through Nike's Made to Play portfolio. You will structure, negotiate and document complex and high-profile transactions, ranging from critical infrastructure third-party logistics agreements to highly visible grants in support of Nike's priority Community commitments. You might even buy or sell a jet!

You will create innovative frameworks, templates and playbooks that appropriately balance competing priorities and allow us to deliver high volume deal types efficiently, quickly and at scale. And you will manage outside counsel and other legal service providers, ensuring that their level of investment is appropriate to the risk, impact and immediacy of the need.

And once you have really settled into your role, you can anticipate cross-training opportunities to continue your development, stretching in to support other functions like Sustainability or Global Sourcing and Manufacturing, and developing your teammates by helping them take on projects within your core accountabilities.


You will join the Global Supply Chain and Sustainability legal team within our Corporate Governance, Compliance and Supply Chain COE. You will partner with legal subject matter experts in areas such as Customs & Trade, Employment, Technology, Privacy and Competition law. And you will regularly engage with our non-US teammates supporting Nike's Geographies and Territories.

You will sit on the leadership teams for Global Logistics and Social & Community Impact. You will be a key member of the Global Logistics Workforce Resilience team, which is responsible for codifying and implementing our labor, health, safety and environmental expectations of Nike's third-party logistics providers. As the lead lawyer for Social & Community Impact, you will provide direct legal support for many of the company's philanthropic initiatives, including the NIKE Foundation and charitable initiatives in support of NIKE's Black Community Commitment.

You will regularly work cross-functionally with colleagues from Controlling, Tax, Communications and Brand Marketing, among others.
