Actively Hiring
The Legal team sits at the heart of Revolut and it’s a very important part of the business. This lovely bunch supports all other Revolut teams, helping us achieve our goals each and every day.
They’re special, they’re strong-willed and they work on a lot of different areas (which is not that common for an in-house role, we know, but they’re just that good). From structuring credit programmes to launching into new territories, the Legal team does it all! We hire both generalists (typically corporate/commercial solicitors) as well as specialists (such as compliance), alongside operations analysts and they’re all responsible to make Revolut grow. It’s your turn to WOW us!
You’ll work on some of the most exciting and challenging legal issues that impact fast-growth, disruptive FinTech companies ๐Ÿ“ˆ You’ll be joining a dedicated part of the legal team that’s responsible for responding to high priority, complex and, sometimes, sensitive topics.

  • Being a part of the Core legal team also means you’ll be responsible for building solutions to make the legal team more efficient at a global level to make sure we grow and adapt at the same pace as the business. We’re leaving no one behind!

  • Working closely with the Head of Legal on general commercial, governance and regulatory issues.

  • Reviewing and assisting with the drafting of corporate documents, commercial agreements (including NDAs), affiliate agreements and third-party agreements in relation to Revolutโ€™s newest products and services.
