RESOLVA is assisting Innargi with the recruitment of an experienced and talented legal profile with a proven track record within legal aspects of international business development, preferably within energy related or other long-term projects.
The legal team at Innargi currently consists of two professionals and is in the process of scaling up due to the growth in Innargi’s activities and the derived increased demand for legal support throughout the organisation.
