We've been officially certified as a Great Place to Work™ in recognition of our outstanding employee experience! So far, we have 10,000+ people working around the world, from our great offices or remotely, on our mission. And we're looking for more. We want brilliant people that love building great products, love redefining success, and love turning the complexity of a chaotic world into the simplicity of a beautiful solution.

About the role

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. 🚀

As a Complaints Legal Counsel, you’ll also work on pre-action letters and responses to claims, and will provide day-to-day legal advice as a business partner to key stakeholders🧑‍⚖ We’re looking for someone with the legal experience and ability to effectively analyse legal case outcomes to identify Revolut’s weak points.

The goal? To improve the quality of our services and make sure that we deliver WOW at all times 💫
