About the Team
The e-commerce legal team provides comprehensive support for diverse, cross functional, and multi-jurisdictional initiatives across the TikTok e-commerce business in the UK and Europe. This is a fantastic opportunity to develop your career within a supportive and dynamic legal team, in a division that is enjoying hyper growth on a truly international scale.

The Role
We are seeking a lawyer to join our EU e-commerce legal team in London to support across a broad range of UK and EU logistics and e-commerce matters.
The focus of this new role will be to support TikTok Shop's logistics teams across the UK and Europe. As part of a full service e-commerce legal team, you will have the opportunity to work on a wide range of advisory, commercial, and product matters.
You will be a talented and motivated self-starter, who will thrive in an environment that asks you to deliver to a high standard at pace, use sound judgement to effectively navigate ambiguity, juggle competing priorities, and work to short turnaround times. You will bring your bias for action, strong ownership, energy, and enthusiasm to respond quickly to a business that is scaling fast.

You will join a dynamic team that is dedicated to delivering excellent stakeholder service to achieve pragmatic solutions for the business. In doing so you will:
- Draft and negotiate a range of high value contracts with vendors and partners, including supply, distribution, and logistics contracts.
- Support logistics procurement deals, including warehouse, storage, and facilities negotiations.
- Monitor and advise on legal and regulatory developments in trade, import/export, logistics, licensing, and supply chain management, and support the business teams in understanding and complying with legal and regulatory requirements.
- Review and provide advice on logistics related digital product features.
- Advise on the development, update, and implementation of policies applicable to TikTok Shop sellers, customers, and logistics partners.
- Build cross-team relationships across a highly matrixed international organisation, partnering with different legal, business, and cross functional teams, to deliver projects against short timeframes, setting appropriate priorities, and managing legal risk.
- Identifying opportunities to improve existing processes and procedures and develop and implement strategies to scale and standardise the use of legal resources.


The ideal candidate will be qualified in a UK or EU jurisdiction with 3+ years PQE and possess the following:
- Strong academic background, with legal qualifications in the UK and/or Europe.
- Experience drafting and negotiating a range of complex commercial contracts.
- Experience advising on trade, logistics, and warehousing contracts, and logistics related technology solutions would be preferred.
- Knowledge of legal frameworks relevant to logistics and transport sectors would be an advantage.
- Experience working with cross-functional business stakeholders as in-house counsel in an international matrixed organisation, with e-commerce experience preferred.
- Organized and driven, with an ability to work independently and with little direction on multiple projects at once in a fast-paced start-up environment.
- A confident self-starter with strong interpersonal and communication skills who is able to clearly communicate complex topics to cross-functional business partners across the globe.
- Strong drafting, documentation, and presentation skills.
- Possess the highest standard of ethics, a positive attitude, and intellectual curiosity.
- European language skills would be a bonus.
