About the job:
We are looking for a structured and ambitious colleague to join our Market Relationships team. As our new Legal Manager, you will be immersed in a dynamic environment where you will engage with external counterparts and internal stakeholders while working alongside highly passionate Saxo professionals.
Market Relationships sits in the Trading Department and is responsible for managing Saxo’s external providers across prime brokers, exchanges, CCPs, sub-custodians, correspondent banks and market data relationships that deliver critical market, settlement, data and banking access to our clients. In this role you will be mandated with the documentation associated with these relationships, ensuring we have great and consistent terms in line with what our clients need.
Our team currently consists of 11 employees, based in Copenhagen, London and Gurugram. The role is based in Copenhagen, and you will be working virtually with colleagues, counterparts and providers globally. You will report directly to the Head of Network & Market Relationship Management.
Your responsibilities will be, but are not limited to:
Ensure consistent terms across all of our providers
Negotiate terms within Saxo appetite
Engage in correspondences and calls with internal stakeholders and external providers regarding mark-ups
Ensure that our agreements are up to date
How do you succeed:
To succeed in this role you are able to work in a structured, determined, and detail-oriented manner to ensure our terms are streamlined across our providers. You possess great communication and negotiating skills to successfully represent Saxo externally with our numerous counterpart relationships.
Henriette Christensen, Head of Network & Market Relationship Management, says “
Master’s degree in law or a related field on similar level.
Proven track record from a similar role, preferably within the financial sector.
Real experience of working with, negotiating, and utilizing contracts.
Furthermore, we are looking for a candidate who is structured, detail-oriented, analytical and self-motivated. Someone who likes to take ownership and would like to play an important role in setting the agenda for how we approach and run our contracts. Skills such as effective problem solving and ability to work with tight deadlines will help you succeed. You are a team player willing to share learnings and new ideas. Additionally, you can articulate problems succinctly and are fully proficient in English.
The COO organisation is responsible for building, constantly developing and improving the full digital value chain that we deliver to our clients and partners. This is done in close collaboration with the Saxo Experience Office and supports the bank in always providing a world-class digital Saxo experience in an efficient, stable and scalable way.
At Saxo IT and the business are integrated, ensuring end-to-end ownership. We are organized based on what we want to do for our clients rather than on subject matter expertise. Within COO you will work together with people from different disciplines, but all with the same goal in mind: making a positive difference for our clients.
The COO umbrella includes the following departments: Operations, Security & Financial Crime Prevention, Trading and our ‘Backbone’ consisting of Enterprise Architecture, Infrastructure, Data Platforms, Workplace Service Management, DevOps Lifecycle Management and IT Business Management.
We aspire to be a non-hierarchical, purpose-driven organisation. At Saxo, it is not about entitlement; it is about impact – no matter where you sit in the organisation. A good idea is always taken seriously and you can truly make a difference.
When you work here, you become a Saxonian. Obviously you will get an attractive compensation package. But we also invest in your personal development and offer you large responsibility from day one. We encourage an open feedback culture and a supportive team environment. If you show a collaborative spirit, drive and passion, your learning curve will be steep and your (international) career opportunities with Saxo immense.
At Saxo we don’t just offer a job – we offer an opportunity to invest in your future!
