Job Responsibilities

  • Use your global employment law expertise and sound judgment to inform Webflow’s global employment policies and practices (e.g. advising on employee relations matters, global expansion), while balancing legal compliance, best practices and Webflow’s business needs, with an initial emphasis on the UK and Ireland.
  • Serve as a trusted advisor to Webflow’s People team to help ensure that Webflow is compliant with applicable global labor and employment laws (e.g. “right to work” requirements, benefits, employee mobility).
  • Provide expert legal advice on a wide range of employment life-cycle matters, including hiring practices, performance management, leave administration, disciplinary actions, and terminations.
  • Keep abreast of developments in employment law globally, and advise on potential impacts to the business. Liaise with external counsel in various jurisdictions to handle employment litigation matters efficiently.
  • Help to implement employment best practices by leading strategic employment law projects, such as building out a global Employment Law Center of Expertise as a go-to resource for our People team, creating and leading trainings on global employment requirements and best practices, and facilitating our global expansion efforts. Develop and refine scalable processes, templates and procedures for our internal teams.
  • Collaborate in the drafting, reviewing, and updating of localized handbooks, offer letters, compensation plans and other policies as needed to ensure they align with current laws and best practices.

In addition to the responsibilities outlined above, at Webflow we will support you in identifying where your interests and development opportunities lie and we’ll help you incorporate them into your role.

Job Requirements

You’ll thrive as Senior Global Employment Counsel if you:

  • Are a motivated self-starter with the ability to self-serve on a majority of British and Irish employment law issues.
  • Have familiarity with the labor and employment laws of other countries, such as the UK and Ireland, and the desire and resourcefulness to learn about employment laws in other regions as needed.
  • Have working knowledge of privacy regulations in the context of employee data and global employment law.
  • Are adaptable and an effective multi-tasker, with a demonstrated ability to manage and prioritize multiple, often competing, demands for your time.
  • Are a creative thinker, collaborative, and excited to contribute to a lean but growing Legal team on a variety of projects which may fall outside of your core expertise.
  • Have a track record of forming and maintaining strong partner and cross-functional relationships.
  • Have a JD or LLM from an ABA accredited law school (or foreign equivalent), and at least one active state bar membership.

Even if you don’t meet 100% of the above qualifications, you should still seriously consider applying. Research shows that you may still be considered for a role if you meet just half of the requirements.

Our Core Behaviors:

  • Obsess over customer experience. We deeply understand what we’re building and who we’re building for and serving. We define the leading edge of what’s possible in our industry and deliver the future for our customers.
  • Move with heartfelt urgency. We have a healthy relationship with impatience, channeling it thoughtfully to show up better and faster for our customers and for each other. Time is the most limited thing we have, and we make the most of every moment.
  • Say the hard thing with care. Our best work often comes from intelligent debate, critique, and even difficult conversations. We speak our minds and don’t sugarcoat things — and we do so with respect, maturity, and care.
  • Make your mark. We seek out new and unique ways to create meaningful impact, and we champion the same from our colleagues. We work as a team to get the job done, and we go out of our way to celebrate and reward those going above and beyond for our customers and our teammates.
