In-house legal job, interim legal job, commercial legal counsel

Your new company

A world leading FinTech organisation, with over 2,5000 people across the globe and processing US$15 billion in transactions annually. Founded nearly 40 years ago, this fast-growing financial services company serves some of the world's most prominent brands with innovative products and services. A recent deal strengthens their position in the market, increasing their share of the foreign exchange market in London. The offices in West London host the small in-house legal function.

Your new role

An interim role reporting into the General Counsel and working with the payments team. This will be a general commercial position reviewing, drafting and negotiating on a range of commercial contracts such as confidentiality, services and joint venture agreements with international banks. You will connect with all areas of the wider business and become recognised as a reliable business advisor, while being comfortable interacting with stakeholders at senior levels.

What you'll need to succeed

You will be a qualified commercial lawyer with demonstrable experience with commercial contracts as this will form a significant part of the role. You will need to be a team player able to contribute in general advisory, contracts and legal support matters. While the role will ideally suit 5+ PQE lawyers, this is intended as a guide only. Financial services or payments backgrounds will be readily welcomed.

What you'll get in return

You will be joining at an exciting time in the company's evolution and you will work in a fast-paced international environment. You will get the chance to work on high quality work as part of an innovative in-house legal team, thus developing your expertise to a level you may not enjoy in a bigger organisation.
