What we’re looking for:

We are hiring for a Junior Commercial Counsel based in Bulgaria! We are looking for an intellectually curious and enthusiastic recent law graduate or a professional in the early stages of their legal career. You have your sights firmly set on working in-house at a global FinTech company. You’re hungry to learn how to apply legal theory in practice, improve your commercial and contract negotiation skills, and help solve real-life business problems. You love tackling new challenges, taking ownership of your work and thrive on the success of a job well done.

As a member of the Legal Team, you will report directly to our Senior Commercial Contracts Counsel and support the review and negotiation of a wide range of commercial contracts and technology agreements. A law degree is essential. 

Alongside great mentorship, teaching and support, we will offer you the chance to take independent ownership over your work and opportunity to work directly with business colleagues across Tide. You will have the opportunity to work cross-functionally across the wider organisation on a number of business transactions and legal initiatives in the commercial contract field.

We’re a close-knit global Legal Team consisting of 12 members across the UK, Bulgaria, and India. We are one of the most cross-functional teams in the company, helping Tideans accomplish their goals, grow the company and stay compliant. 

We place a lot of emphasis on team collaboration, honesty and support. We seek to make all new joiners feel part of Team Legal from day one. We're looking for an individual who'll not only fit into that team, but will bring new ideas, challenge us and roll up their sleeves when needed.

  • Helping advise business colleagues on a variety of legal queries relating to commercial contracts, including undertaking legal research and drafting legal advice notes.
  • With the support of your senior legal colleagues, independently reviewing, drafting, negotiating commercial contracts, and liaising directly with external contract counterparties. 
  • Helping with other deliverables related to the commercial contract management, including automating our workflow management, helping implement legal AI solutions and building and maintaining contractual templates and databases.    

What makes you a great fit:
