Job description

Climate for growth

It is Priva's mission to create an optimal environment where people can work, grow and develop. We offer global solutions for horticulture and building automation.


Our ambition is to be known as the leading technology and service provider for sustainable urban deltas. We are proud that our solutions result in lower consumption of natural resources and contribute to several of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).


To fulfill our mission and ambition, we are looking for dedicated colleagues.


Your future ecosystem
Between Rotterdam and The Hague, you find the greenhouse capital of the world: “Het Westland”, where our campus is located in The Lier. A region that has a great contribution to The Netherlands as food exporter number 2 worldwide, right after the US.

In these 100 square kilometers, Priva was founded in the fifties. An innovative second-generation owned family business. Today we are a high-tech company that develops hardware, software and digital services in the field of climate control, energy-saving and optimal reuse of water. We do this for horticulture, indoor and city farming, as well as utility buildings such as offices, retail, hotels and hospitals.

We are proud that we are working with 500 colleagues, in 15 international branch offices divided over 12 countries together with over 400 international installation partners to deliver our sustainable solutions and services in more than 100 countries.

How you add value

As Legal Counsel, you get a challenging role in a dynamic environment. You will advise the business when legal questions arise, for example regarding contracts. Next to this, you will draft non-disclosure agreements, participate in projects related to tenders or large market inquiries, guide multiple workflows, be involved in the formation (or extension) of contracts with suppliers and maintain contact with notaries and the Dutch chamber of commerce. You will also be responsible for maintaining and updating general terms and conditions for the use of our products and services by our partners and end users.


Depending on your experience and interests, there is enough room for personal development. Initiatives and projects that contribute to the development of legal within Priva, such as digitization of the legal processes, data protection and assisting/training of our colleagues in the development of commercial agreements are all very relevant. Interest in and/or experience with these subjects is desired.
