Oodle Finance is a dynamic consumer lending FinTech business based in Oxford. Built on technology, operational excellence and consumer innovation, our vision is to bring transparent and efficient lending products to everyone. We are technology driven - built on proprietary credit underwriting algorithms, market leading customer service, loyalty and rewards schemes. Oodle is a unique brand that aims to redefine the relationship between borrowers and lenders, and is supported by capital from one of the world’s leading investment companies.

Launched in early 2016, our founders and management team have extensive track records in Finance and Technology. We are looking for exceptional candidates to join the team and share the journey. We value candidates with strong academic achievements and/or expertise in their subject, along with a desire to thrive in a fast-paced entrepreneurial culture. Successful applicants will be able to demonstrate energy & passion in all that they do, motivation, curiosity and a can-do attitude.

We currently have a requirement for a Commercial Lawyer to provide legal support to our General Counsel. Your primary responsibility will be drafting, reviewing and negotiating commercial contracts, but you will be happy to take on other legal work, as and when the business requires. 

You need to have qualified with a well-regarded law firm, with a minimum of 3 years PQE. Ideally you will have worked within Financial Services, in particular Auto Finance or Consumer Lending, but more importantly will be your ability to work independently. Experience of litigation work would also be a benefit. Attention to detail and excellent written & verbal communications skills are a must.
