  • Develop an understanding of everything related to fundraising via Seedrs, including our nominee structure, the regulatory framework in which we operate, engaging with investors (from small, self directed investors to high net worths and institutions) and understanding our platform and products

 

Who we're looking for:

  • The ideal candidate will have qualified as a solicitor or equivalent - NQ or 1 year PQE experience (in a corporate or related area)
  • Experience in corporate transactions, including contract negotiation and good understanding of shareholder agreements and/or share purchase agreements
  • A self-starter and problem-solver who is able to use their initiative to help not only our entrepreneurs and investors, but also the Portfolio team scale & grow
  • Genuine interest in and understanding of the startup ecosystem and early-stage investing
  • Strong organisational skills as well as the ability to effectively prioritise across different workstreams

 

Interview process 

We have a multi stage interview process:

  1. 30 minute phone screen with the Senior Legal Manager
  2. 1 hr interview with the Senior Legal Manager and Senior Legal Associate, including a pre-prepared technical assessment
  3. Final Interview with our CIO backed up with a Culture Interview with the People Team/Colleagues
