Legal Counsel EMEA

  • UK, United Kingdom
  • Full time

Here's what we know for sure: companies work well when they've got the right people. That's what inspired us to build a SaaS platform that makes recruiting, onboarding, developing, and retaining people simple. From humble beginnings in Melbourne, we are now proud to have homes in Sydney, the USA, UK, Singapore, Manila, and Dublin. Our platform is used by 2.6 million customer-employee users in over 190 countries, (but that's enough about us).

 

About You

Having started your career at a top-tier or mid-tier law firm and now in-house (or with secondment experience), you are an experienced lawyer (4-6PQE) ready to take on a challenging legal counsel role within a growing, global Software as a Service (SaaS) organisation. With broad commercial law experience, including strong global data protection expertise and contract negotiation skills, your style is both resourceful and pragmatic.

You have a proven ability to blend strong technical legal skills with commerciality and common sense. You embrace learning new things and enjoy rolling up your sleeves and giving everything a go. Ownership and autonomy in your role are key motivational drivers. If you enjoy being a trusted business adviser, cross department collaboration, innovative colleagues & a part of an awesome culture, then we're the perfect company for you!

 

The Opportunity

This newly created permanent, full time role will be fast-paced and have a real international flavour. While SaaS or tech experience will be favourably considered, it is not essential. We are looking for someone who is interested in building a career in the growing tech sector, preferably with some in-house Legal Counsel experience in global data protection compliance (Licensed to practice in England & Wales or Ireland).

Reporting to our General Counsel and working closely with our Leadership and wider Sales team, the role covers the following responsibilities:

  • Client Contract Management and Review - you will work closely with the Sales Team on client contract negotiation 

  • Data Protection Compliance - you will lead the EMEA data protection strategy including data transfer initiatives to third countries, and keep up to date with global data protection impacts

  • General legal advice & providing timely, commercially-relevant legal advice on a range of issues that arise in a SaaS business (including privacy, data security, IP and supplier contracts)

 

Equal Opportunity at PageUp

We know that in many cases individuals from underrepresented groups will not apply for jobs when they don’t meet all criterias, we don’t want this to be the case in our team. If you think you have what it takes, but don't necessarily tick every single bullet point on the job description, please still apply and give it a try. We'd love to have a chat and see if you could be our newest member.

 

So what makes us stand out?

PageUp is a 2021 Best Place to Work on the AFR list, recognised for our practices and achievements in community building, flexibility, communication, and transparency during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. This recognition highlights the strong culture we've built at PageUp and reflects our tireless efforts and commitment to create community, trust, and flexibility within our culture.

Oh, and our customers love PageUp for its deep, customisable functionality for a range of workflows and industries, all accompanied by outstanding customer service.

 

And, of course, the perks.

Our benefits provide something for everyone! Flexible working; an extra day of leave to do something awesome (no really – it's called Awesome Day); generous paid parental leave for primary and secondary carers; health benefits; a wellbeing allowance; employee assistance program; volunteer leave and more.

Our global presence also means those with a little wanderlust have the opportunity to take their career to new places. Pardon the pun.
