HR – Recruitment
Our Story
We’re empowering people to FeelGood about their money.
We’re been on this journey since 2004, when we built the first ever peer-to-peer lending company to give people access to simpler, better-value loans and investments. When it comes to money, we think everyone deserves a fair deal, so since we launched, we’ve helped hundreds of thousands of customers to take the stress out of money by building our business on honesty, transparency and trust.
Our journey’s always evolving and we’re now launching a bank. But a different type of bank – one that empowers its customers to take control of their finances and FeelGood about their money.

If you embrace being challenged beyond the norm, aren’t afraid to think differently and are motivated by working somewhere you can really make an impact, you’ll love life here at Zopa.

Zopa is growing a lot right now.... Between the continued scaling of the P2P platform, and the new financial products we’re building as part of the Zopa Bank launch, we’re looking to strengthen and diversify all areas of our business.  The recruitment team are at the heart of this exciting growth, as we play the important role of bringing in more great talent to help us reach our goal of being the best place for money.  
We’re looking for an experienced Recruiter for a 1-year Fixed Term Contract (maternity cover).  We want someone who can attract the best talent in the market and manage the complete candidate experience across varying functions such as; Customer Operations and Product Design to Analytics and our annual Graduate Programme.   Our recruiters are deeply embedded into Zopa culture and you’ll really get to know the teams you're recruiting for, so developing strong relationships and trust is a must. If this sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you!
