Legal Counsel

What makes our Legal Counsel role in Singapore right for you?

Global eCommerce is a rapidly growing area of Worldpay’s business, that’s why we need to hire you! As our footprint expands in the Far East region, we require a native Mandarin speaker to work supportively with our Senior Legal Counsel engaging with internal stakeholders and a wide range of regional local customers. As a qualified legal professional, you should be eager to work in-house for a major global PLC providing consistent high quality legal advice whilst developing your career.

What will you be doing on a day to day basis? 

Using your commercial and legal expertise you will provide insightful, detailed and valuable business advice across: Commercial Contract Negotiation, Transaction Structuring, Customer / Supplier communication, Legal / Non-Legal solution provisioning. Functionally you will operate as a legal subject matter expert facilitating education on legal matters and ensuring consistency in terms of policy, standards and governance. Managing the relationship with our third party external legal provider, you can also expect to be involved in managing the Dawn Raid process for the office.

What will make you right for this role?

You will be a qualified lawyer with up to 6/7 years experience preferably having trained with a recognised firm. Fluency in local language (Mandarin) is essential in this role (preferably native level of proficiency). You will have familiarity with financial services and the regulation standards as well as broad commercial and corporate legal experience (any Payments Industry exposure would be seen as beneficial). International / cross-border transaction experience would be seen as advantageous as would any internationally recognised qualification. You should have excellent communication skills (both written and verbal) combined with a high level of personal and professional credibility.
