Full Job Description
Career Opportunity-March 2021:
Position: Corporate Cannabis Lawyer/Attorney & Co-Owner/Partner
Company: Confidential NEW Cannabis Company
JOB AND COMPANY INFORMATION:
Our team is working hard to build the future of the Cannabis Industry, we are working hard to help many people, and-perhaps most importantly- we are working incredibly hard to build a company that truly shares the wealth and that treats their employees better than any other company in the Cannabis Industry.
If you are an awesome Lawyer/Attorney looking for a new career, and you have a diverse set of skills and interests…you could be a great fit for our team.
If you are analytical, adaptable, dedicated, trustworthy, passionate, motivated, positive, and talented- and you have a desire to work in the Cannabis Industry- we would love you to have you join us in starting a brand NEW Vertically-Integrated Cannabis Company in Colorado.
For many reasons, this is an extremely unique opportunity… but here are some highlights:
*YOU could join a BRAND-NEW team that is going to begin the application process for a new dispensary, cultivation facility, and MIP license, in Colorado, and you could be a key team member from the very start, and-since the process takes a while- *YOU can help us build the vision for the company while we wait to get approved and open locations, and *YOU could have the chance to work as the 1st “Corporate Lawyer/Attorney” for our innovative new company.
We’re planning to grow fast, and we’ll need your help to do it.
THE BEST PART about this opportunity is probably that you have the chance to create a real career and financial future in this role with our company because YOU could have a chance to become more than just a Lawyer/Attorney for a company: YOU could become a Co-Owner/Partner of this new innovative cannabis company, from the very start, if you’re also motivated to do great things in the Cannabis Industry, and if you have some capital to contribute and you also possess the other attributes we are seeking in a Corporate Lawyer/Attorney and Co-Owner/Partner.
We don’t yet have our licenses and are not yet operating, but we have secured our locations and most of our team, and we are now ready to begin the application process very soon…but we are missing one crucial element that we need to acquire before we can start the license acquisition process for our company.
What do we need? WE NEED YOU AND YOUR TALENTS TO JOIN OUR TEAM.
