We believe that it is the unique combination of skills, perspectives, and experiences of our people that makes us truly stand out. Our company values reflect this - we are a dynamic, human-focused, honest, and passionate team who is dedicated to providing awesome service to our customers.

About the role 

Join Youi's award-winning in-house legal team as a Legal Counsel and be a valued expert for a 12-month temporary role covering parental leave.
