Legal Counsel Dept (vacature gesloten) – Amsterdam/Rotterdam


Working on interesting legal issues at a fast-paced digital marketing agency with flexible and hybrid working conditions. Aiming to help the world’s leading brands build and accelerate their digital exposure.


Dept is a fast-growing international digital marketing agency which is PE-backed by Carlyle. The company unites creativity, technology and data together. Dept helps the world’s leading brands build and accelerate their digital products, services and campaigns. For instance, Dept recently introduced a marketing technology platform designed for brand building and acceleration of digital operations. The team of over 2,000 thinkers and makers spans 13 countries across Europe and the Americas. Dept proudly works for top brands like Samsung, Google, Amazon, Microsoft, Bose, Netflix and more. Part of that growth comes from acquisitions in Europe and the USA.
