Director of Legal

  • About the Firm: GoCardless processes billions in payments each year. Tens of thousands of businesses across the UK and beyond rely on us to handle their payments, and hundreds more sign up every week. As we look to the future, those businesses will be larger, more demanding, and present in multiple countries - and so will we.
  • About the role: The legal team is at the forefront of GoCardless’ expansion, development and scaling - both domestically and abroad. We enable the business to move into new markets and geographies, often dealing with novel issues along the way.
  • Looking For: We are looking to secure your experience in scaling legal processes, your knowledge of what KPIs and KRIs are, and how to set them; your first-class communication and stakeholder management skills, and your ability to distil complex and cumbersome legalese into understandable English.
  • Opportunities: As Head of Legal, you have the opportunity to lead a team of three lawyers that support the entire GoCardless business. You will set the direction and structure for the team, ensuring that we pave the way for the business to execute, with a focus on innovation, efficiency and approachability.
  • And more: The team is seen as an enabler, not a blocker, and we would like to keep it that way.
