Interim Counsel - 5-7 PQE - FIntech - 3 months
Your new company
A fast-growing fintech business with a SaaS platform, benefiting from the broader infrastructure of its holding group. The company has become a leader in supporting transacting asset management businesses, and has trebled its headcount in the last six months.
Your new role
A position created position through the increased workload, this Legal Counsel role reports into the General Counsel, expanding the team until a more junior permanent lawyer is found. You will liaise with stakeholders up to C-level to help drive the business forward. The role involves regular negotiation of business-critical agreements, including vendor, customer licensing and service agreements, alongside some corporate governance and occasional corporate structuring work. Working with sales, marketing and technology teams, you will add commercial value across the wider organisation. The business is proud of its high-performance culture and its values, which include curiosity and honesty.
What you'll need to succeed
You will be qualified as a lawyer in the UK or a major common law jurisdiction, with excellent academics and strong training at a reputable law firm. While the ideal experience will be 5-7 PQE as a guide, the business will consider lawyers with more or less relevant experience. A strong corporate, commercial or finance legal background will suit the role. You will be eager to learn with a "can-do" attitude and be excited about being accountable for all legal matters in the future.
What you'll get in return
The successful candidate will benefit from high-level legal exposure from the experienced General Counsel, stakeholder engagement across the business and the opportunity to head up the legal function in the future. You will be rewarded with a highly competitive dayrate, with a hybrid working model.
