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.

Seedrs HQ is in London with offices in Lisbon, Amsterdam and Berlin. We are backed by top UK fund manager Neil Woodford, Augmentum Fintech PLC, listed on the London Stock Exchange Main Market and Europe’s largest listed fintech fund, a number of European VCs and over 1,000 of our own users. Seedrs is experiencing exceptional growth and are looking for superstars to join our team.
As one of the most active funders of UK companies, Seedrs is at the cutting-edge of innovation in fin-tech, entrepreneurship and growth capital fund raising. You will play a fundamental role in driving our growth, and impact how hundreds of exciting and groundbreaking companies access the funds to realise their ambitions.
The ideal candidate will have qualified as a solicitor or equivalent and have 1-2 years 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 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 works with all entrepreneurs raising through Seedrs, helping them to get funded whilst informing and protecting our investors.
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 to funding. While we’re looking for an excellent lawyer, you’ll also need to develop and 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 product.
