Who we are

Seedrs is the leading equity crowdfunding platform and the most active funder of private companies in the UK, with £2.1B invested into campaigns and more than 1750 deals funded. We allow all types of investors to invest as little or as much as they like in businesses they believe in and share in their success. We allow ambitious businesses in all sectors to raise capital and build community through an efficient, online process. Seedrs’ HQ is in London, with multiple teams based across Europe.

Republic, a U.S. based firm, has recently acquired Seedrs in a mission to create the first global private investing platform.

Republic operates several distinct business lines including a retail investment platform, a private capital division, and a blockchain advisory practice. The Republic ecosystem has deployed over $1.5 billion in investments, has supported over 600 companies, and comprises over 2M community members across 150 countries. Now, being officially a part of the Republic ecosystem, Seedrs will not only continue to serve the exciting UK and European businesses and investors, but with Republic’s firepower behind us, we will continue to redefine the segment by leading on innovation, customer service, supporting diversity, and trust. Our mission remains unchanged, but now we will have more resources to continue building innovative products that serve our business and investors in the best way possible.

We recognise the benefits of having a diverse workforce and take steps to ensure that we endeavour to recruit from a wide pool of suitably qualified candidates.

What you'll do

  • You will be working closely with entrepreneurs who are fundraising on Seedrs, as they go through the first stage of preparing to launch their crowdfunding campaign with the investment team.
  • As the first point of contact for the investment team, you will be responsible for ensuring a high quality experience for our clients by providing clear and helpful guidance to them throughout their onboarding into the investment team.
  • The main focus of the role is to guide Seedrs clients - who will typically be one of the founders or core management team - through three essential onboardingstepsbefore being assigned their Investment Associate: the submission of a business profile form collecting information for our due diligence checks; making the choice of legal documentation for their roundand the creation of their ‘pre-registration’ page content which is used as a marketing tool to gather investor interest.
  • You will also be responsible for reviewing the information provided in the business profile form and undertaking out due diligence checks so that clients are fully vetted when they are handed to their Investment Associate. This may mean being in direct contact with the client to ask for more information in order to complete our checks.
  • You will work with investment team and sales team managers to ensure we are hitting our targets for clients being assigned to investment associates. You will have the opportunity to lead on operational improvement projects in order to improve the client experience and become more efficient.
  • We expect you will quickly become an expert across these subject areas, able to respond to any questions that arise and act as a trusted consultant to Seedrs clients. The varied nature of these means you will need to learn fast and adapt to the varying needs of our clients.
  • As a key part of our Investment Team, you will also learn about the entire fundraising journey, from the early campaign planning stages through to deal execution and portfolio oversight, alongside your day to day role.

Who we’re looking for

  • A true passion for entrepreneurship, innovation and genuine empathy for entrepreneurs. If you don’t believe that startups will change the world, this job is not for you.
  • An interest and background in company due diligence. We will provide training on the due diligence we undertake, but an understanding of company structure, financial forecasts and simple corporate governance would be helpful.
  • Strong organisational skills to effectively manage multiple tasks under pressure whilst maintaining excellent attention to detail and customer service. This is a relatively new role and we are looking for someone who will be able to manage their workload independently whilst drawing on the experience within the team.
  • Some experience of working in a client facing role is preferred, although not essential provided you can demonstrate excellent communication and organisational skills.
  • A high attention to detail and thorough in your approach to your work.
  • Fluent in English and have excellent writing skills.
  • Possess a willingness to work flexibly. We are a very fast growing company, and we need to operate with all hands on deck.
