General Counsel

London, England, United Kingdom · Legal

Description

Hello, we’re Tide.

We believe SMEs have been vastly underserviced and overlooked by traditional banks. Something as simple as opening an account can take weeks, mountains of paperwork and too much time. Through a mobile-first platform, we provide modern business banking services to small-business owners, saving them time so they can get back to doing what they love.

Based in central London, Tide is backed by some of Europe’s most notable founders and investors, including Robin and Saul Klein (LocalGlobe) and Alex Chesterman (Zoopla Property Group), as well as top VCs in London and Stockholm (Anthemis, Creandum and Passion Capital).

We’re offering the right person, the opportunity to join our dynamic team to help unlock the next stage of our growth. We’re a rocket ship that's going places – this looks a little like world domination!

Your day will look a little like this:

As a General Counsel at Tide (fondly referred to as a Tidean - a god-like challenger of the banking world) you will have the honourable badge of being our first Tidean to take the reigns as our first in-house legal counsel! You will take ownership of all legal matters at Tide and be heavily involved defining our risk and compliance procedures. You will assist senior management in helping Tide scale through and beyond our Series B, and be responsible for managing all external legal relationships.

Your areas of responsibilities will include:

Legal and First line of Defense Compliance:

Commercial:

Board and corporate:

Diversity is what makes our world interesting. Different people bring fresh new ideas, thinking and approaches, which make the way work is undertaken more effective and efficient. If you’re not into diversity, Tide may not be in the right place for you! Tide holds itself accountable against measurable diversity objectives.
