In-House Recruiter - Corporate Functions

Operations – HR/Recruitment
Full Time
At Zopa, we’re shaping the future of finance.

We offer simple loans and smart investments that help people take control of their finances and do more with their money. In the 12 years we’ve been in business, we’ve helped more than 60,000 people lend over £3 billion to 246,000 UK consumers.

And our journey’s only just beginning. In November 2016 we announced our plans to build a next generation bank so that we can bring a greater range of smart, ethical finance products to even more people.

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.   From Finance, to Legal, to Risk to Product, pretty much every team in Zopa is looking to bring in more great talent! EXCITING!
Because of this, we’re looking to bring on board an passionate go getting recruiter that’s willing to get involved with a really diverse range of roles, to make sure we’re able to find the right people to meet our lofty hiring goals.
We’ll give you access to the best recruiter tools available in order to deliver this (Entelo, Linkedin, Indeed, Reed, eFinancial etc.) and we’re open to you suggesting more if you believe it’ll help Zopa attract more talent….
