About the team

The legal department sits at the heart of Revolut and is a core part of the business. Members of the team provide front-line guidance and support to all areas of the company, contributing to decisions that impact on Revolut’s growth every day.

The breadth of work you will encounter (and level of commercial involvement) is pretty unique for an in-house role, from structuring credit programmes to launching into new territories. We hire both generalists (typically corporate/commercial solicitors) as well as specialists (such as compliance), alongside operations analysts, all of whom have a large degree of responsibility for Revolut’s ongoing development and growth.

What you will be doing:

  • Draft, review, negotiate and advise internal stakeholders and negotiate with external counterparts on a variety of corporate matters.
  • Corporate advisory: advise internal stakeholders (and negotiate with external counterparts where relevant) on fundraising, secondary sales, mergers and acquisitions, restructurings and intra-group agreements.
  • Debt advisory: advise internal stakeholders and negotiate with external counterparts on external debt financing and structuring.
  • Governance: support the team on governance related matters.
  • Investor relations: support the team in managing investor relations.

What you’ll need

2+ Years PQE

  • Strong corporate experience as a private practice lawyer at a top law firm
  • Strong skills in drafting legal documents (corporate documents, internal procedures)
  • Solid stakeholder management and engagement skills

Be responsible and result-oriented

Excellent academic and law firm credentials

Hold a current practicing certificate

Excellent English language skills (written and oral)

Nice to have

A little about us…When Revolut was founded in 2015, we had a vision to build a sustainable, digital alternative to traditional big banks. Our mission now is to help our customers improve their financial health, empower them to have more control, and promote financial cohesion across the communities in which we operate. Launching into 2020 with 10 million Personal customers and over a quarter of a million Business customers only reinforced our belief in the vast need across the world for better financial services. As our customer base has boomed in the last year, we’ve expanded our team to match that growth. We started 2019 with several hundred employees; we closed it out with 2000.

What we’re looking for…Revolut is being scaled up by people all around the world who share our vision. We’re looking for people who align with our five core values: we believe that we Get it Done because we Think Deeper and are strongly rooted in the Dream Team. We Never Settle hence why we always Deliver Wow. You want to join a community forward thinking people - we are here for you. We believe in empowering our Revoluters in their work, giving them autonomy and ownership of what they do. We want everyone at Revolut to own their story and their successes - working with us means you’re not just another cog in the machine.
