Contract Type

Lendable is on a mission to make consumer finance amazing: faster, cheaper and friendlier.

We're building one of the world's leading fintech companies and are off to a strong start:

  • One of the UK's newest unicorns with a team of just over 250 people
  • Among the top 10 fastest–growing tech companies in the UK
  • Profitable since 2017
  • Backed by top investors including Balderton Capital and Goldman Sachs
  • Loved by customers with the best reviews in the market (4.8/5 across 10,000s of reviews)

So far, we've rebuilt the Big Three consumer finance products from scratch: loans, credit cards and car finance. We get money into our customers' hands in minutes instead of days.

We're growing fast, and there's a lot more to do: we're going after the two biggest Western markets (UK and US) where trillions worth of these are held by big banks with dated systems and painful processes.

Join us if you want to
  • Take ownership across a broad remit. You are trusted to make decisions that drive a material impact on the direction and success of Lendable from day 1
  • Work in small teams of exceptional people, who are relentlessly resourceful to solve problems and find smarter solutions than the status quo
  • Build the best technology in–house, using new data sources, machine learning and AI to make machines do the heavy lifting

  • Assist with company secretarial and governance duties
  • Assist with the preparation of investor documentation for potential new funding rounds
  • Help to manage the use and cost of external legal counsel
  • Work closely with other members of the Legal Team to provide timely and first–class legal support

  • You have strong organisational skills and are able to autonomously lead multiple deliverables in a fast–paced environment
  • You are excited by new challenges and like understanding laws in new markets and around new financial products

  • You enjoy working in a fast–paced and growing business and taking ownership
  • You have a mindset that is adaptable and flexible to change
  • Have excellent communication and relationship–building skills
  • The opportunity to scale up one of the world's most successful fintech companies.
