Hello there. We’re Zopa the Feel Good Money company.
In 2005 we built the first ever peer-to-peer lending company to give people access to simpler, better-value loans and investments. Since then we’ve helped hundreds of thousands of customers take the stress out of money by building our business on honesty, transparency and trust.

It works so well that we want to give our customers access to other great products and tools, empowering them to better manage their money. That’s why, in December 2018, we launched a different type of bank, allowing us to bring a greater range of smart finance products to even more people.

We are extremely proud of the high quality service we provide to our customers. As part of this, when customers need to contact us we want them to be able to engage with us through the channels that they want to use.
We provide an excellent service to customers over the phone today, and we want to offer the same high level of service through a range of digital channels going forwards.
We are looking for someone who can define and own our digital servicing channel strategy and roadmap, driving live chat and in app messaging in the short term, but also setting our direction for the future, assessing and creating recommendations on the role of existing and emerging channels such as Facebook messenger and Whatsapp.
