Seedrs is the leading equity crowdfunding platform and the most active funder of private companies in the UK, with almost £1B invested into campaigns and more than 1100 deals funded. We allow all types of investors to invest as little or as much as they like in businesses they believe in and share in their success. And we allow ambitious businesses in all sectors to raise capital and build community through an efficient, online process.
Seedrs HQ is in London, with offices in Lisbon and Berlin. We are backed by top-tier institutional investors and VCs, as well as over 4,000 of our own users.
We have created a working environment that allows you to be yourself at work and be treated fairly, on the basis of your merits, abilities and potential. We recognise the benefits of having a diverse workforce and take steps to ensure that we endeavour to recruit from a wide pool of suitably qualified candidates. We live by core values, all of which operate to help us deliver company goals.
We’re looking for a self-starter junior lawyer, passionate about startups and investment to join our Investment Team.
The ideal candidate will have qualified as a solicitor or equivalent - NQ or 1 year PQE experience - in corporate or a related area, with a strong understanding of how venture capital and/or private equity functions.
This is a great opportunity for someone looking to move into the startup and venture capital ecosystem whilst leveraging their existing legal skillset. You should be a clear strategic thinker, client-focused, and thrive on the opportunity to help us build our team, our business and the future of European startups. The job will require top-notch interpersonal skills, legal experience and knowledge with genuine empathy for entrepreneurs.
This position sits within the Investment Team, which is at the core of our operations: the Investment Team works with all entrepreneurs raising through Seedrs, helping them to get funded whilst informing and protecting our investors. The candidate must have a genuine passion for helping entrepreneurs grow their businesses.
What you'll do:
You will be responsible for all legal aspects of the campaigns you are handling and will play a key part in taking startups through the funding process. While we’re looking for an excellent lawyer, you’ll also need to develop an understanding of everything related to fundraising via Seedrs, including strategies around crowdfunding, 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.
