Octopus Legacy is the place to plan for death and find support after loss. When people think about planning for death they think about wills, life insurance and funerals. We take these cold processes and turn them into something more human. Share more than money: leave voice notes, music, recipes. Shape a legacy that connects you while you're here. And after you're gone.
Founded by Sam after his mum died suddenly, we’re a group of people who work in death because we’ve been affected by it. We know the difference a good plan makes, and what it’s like when there isn’t one.
Death can come between us, leave mess, legal fees, frustration. But it can also make us stronger. We see a world where people talk openly about death, and work out the real meaning of legacy, one that connects to them. We’re here to make that world happen.
Want to be a part of shaping a role and growing a team? We’re in hyper-growth mode which includes an acquisition strategy that you’ll be taking a leading role in. This is a foundational role in the growth and sales team.
We’re hiring an M&A Associate to help support us with a massive outbound function that we’re launching as part of our goal to reach 1m clients. This role will be focused on building out our business by reaching out to existing legal firms and broaching the conversation of M&A. A bit like how Octopus Energy recently onboarded Bulb’s clients. We can’t reveal too much without signing NDAs but the scope of this project is enormous. You’ll also be working alongside Octopus’ M&A team to help with the onboarding of these new clients.
This role will help you build or grow a foundation in M&A, develop expertise in the estate planning industry and be on the front line of hyper-growth. As the first member of this team, there is an opportunity to mould the role, and develop into a leadership role as the team grows.
You want to work at a startup and you’ll thrive in a fast paced environment. You have a personal growth mentality, with a hunger to learn. Autonomy doesn't scare you, and being self-sufficient and happy to come up with solutions to problems on your own is attractive to you.
If you're not 100% sure that you are right for the role, please apply anyway. What's the worst that could happen?
We know that to be truly innovative, we need to have a diverse team around us. That is why Octopus Legacy is committed to creating an inclusive environment and is proud to be an equal opportunity employer.
