An extremely exciting opportunity has arisen for a lawyer to become the General Counsel of a burgeoning FinTech company experiencing exponential growth.

You will be coming directly into the senior management team and be responsible for everything to do with legal and compliance. Reporting directly into the CEO and the board, you'll also be expected to grow out the legal function moving forward.

You will be clearly passionate about technology and possess a real entrepreneurial verve. The expectations for yourself and the business should be high and you'll be driven to provide significant value not only in terms of legal expertise but also in a wider commercial/business sense.

A strong grounding in financial services and FS regulatory frameworks would be ideal. Experience in a compliance focused role would also be of benefit and broad expertise covering corporate and commercial law would be of significant value.

This is a unique opportunity to help lead a rapidly growing business at a critical time in its development. You'll be working with an incredible team of people and be given the capacity to contribute to all areas of the business.
