Careers with Lidl for Law graduates

Providing legal support for a business as high-profile as ours, with as many public touch points, with so many thousands of employees and millions of square metres of space; it’s daunting. But, as a lawyer, you crave the biggest challenges. You want to see the visible impact of your work. Lidl is part of Ireland and you can be part of that too. 

The legal department provides a general legal service to the business, ranging from supporting contract drafting, advising on the impact of new legislation or answering ad hoc questions on a variety of legal matters. 

The largest volume of the department’s work is summed up in three simple letters G.R.C – Governance, Risk Management, Compliance. The GRC team manages the investigation and defence of insurance incidents and claims by working closely together with colleagues in stores, the regions and Health & Safety, as well as engaging with an external expert panel consisting of medical consultants and engineers. We also coordinate the continuous development and improvement of Lidl’s Compliance Management System, which comprises of modules like Data Protection, Anti-Fraud/Anti-Corruption and Competition Law.

It’s a busy department, but one that will give you a huge sense of satisfaction and vast experience with one of Europe’s biggest brands.
