London, GB

Drive the risk agenda at a cutting-edge, dynamic and high-growth fin-tech company.

GoCardless processes billions in payments each year. Tens of thousands of businesses across the UK and beyond rely on us to handle their payments, and hundreds more sign up every week. As we look to the future, those businesses will be larger, more demanding, and present in multiple countries - and so will we. The risk team must ensure that GoCardless adopts, implements and maintains innovative and appropriate risk processes and controls as we have a duty to banking partners, regulators, schemes, merchants and their customers to review and monitor accounts and transactions with the utmost care.

We've built a friendly, collaborative culture where we hire and develop smart, driven people that share our desire to do work we can be proud of. We value learning and feedback and are devoted to encouraging and supporting each other's professional growth.
