More generally, you identify legal issues, provide analysis of legal risks and create and implement solutions structured to achieve business objectives efficiently.

You get to be at the sharp end of the business and the organization heavily depend on us and our advice. The legal and compliance department is a highly trusted function in this big company. You will join a tight knit team in a fun environment with people from different background.

Much like riding a rollercoaster, sometimes life at Betsson can be lightning fast with twists and turns but always fun! We recognise it may not be for the faint-hearted, but if you’re a go-getter, initiator and adrenaline junkie, always striving to push the boundaries and challenge yourself, then you’ll fit right in.

EXTRA AWESOME:

  • Dual-qualification, common and civil law jurisdiction is a plus.
  • Admission to the Bar (or equivalent – for example, admission as a solicitor in England and Wales) of one of the jurisdictions of the European Union and/ or training in a highly regarded international law firm.
  • Experience from technology or e-commerce sector.
  • Individuals with experience in the payments and/ or online gaming sector whom have a sound basis in commercial contract drafting are preferred but should you have comparable experience in a different sector relating to commercial drafting, then you will still be considered.
