Job Description

Our Story
Hello there. We’re Zopa.
Our diverse team is united in their mission of creating simple, fair and honest financial products that have the customer’s needs at their heart. We’re proud that this dedication is reflected in our excellent rating on TrustPilot.
We’ve always been unapologetically honest with our customers, and value the same in return. Their feedback helps us shape what we build, so we can provide a bank fit for today, and for the future.
We’re not the new kids on the block though - we’ve been a pioneering force in finance for 16 years. In 2005, we built the first ever peer-to-peer (P2P) lending company, giving our customers access to loans built for real-life and intelligent investments backed by cutting-edge tech. In 2020, we launched Zopa Bank, meaning we could offer more – like fixed term savings backed by FSCS protection and a credit card to help customers take control of their finances.
Today, our bank and our P2P business run alongside each other, with the same ethos and the same mission. We’ve lent out over £6 billion and are proud to have made money work better for over half a million people across the UK, whether they were looking to borrow, save or invest.
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.­

We’re looking for a Technical Recruiter to hire across a range of tech roles. You'll partner closely with leaders across our technical teams to understand their priorities, help them design and execute successful hiring process and bring in a diverse set of candidates. You'll have responsibility for the entire candidate lifecycle including sourcing, interviewing and closing as well as giving insight and recommendations to hiring managers along the way.

Our tech community are award winning (we just won the Best Use of IT in Consumer Finance' award at the FStech awards!), ambitious and growing at an exciting pace. Our recruiters are deeply embedded into Zopian culture and you’ll really get to know the teams you're recruiting for, so developing strong relationships and trust is a must. So if this sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you!

A day in the life:

Partner with Senior Zopians across our tech community to understand and help deliver their hiring plans
Hire for a variety of tech roles (Software Engineers, Reliability Engineering, Data, IT Infrastructure and more)

Proactively identify and attract a diverse pipeline of top talent to Zopa (whether through Headhunting, Networking, events or Brand Attraction).
Ensure that all candidates experience a recruitment process reflective of our amazing culture and brand
Build strong relationships with the hiring teams across the business to make sure the internal customer experience is as clear and concise as the candidate experience

About you:

Experience in-house is a must – ideally in a fast growing, technology focused role and business

You’re analytically minded, make decisions based on data and can use data to influence stakeholders
You’re passionate about challenging the norm and finding better ways of doing things and care deeply about inclusiveness and diversity
Hands on sourcing experience, which means you can autonomously deliver against the roles you’re working on

Flexible working? Yes please!

We’re currently piloting a new flexible working scheme. This means that whether you want to come into our open-plan, riverside London Bridge office or work from the comfort of your own home (or both!), you’ll be able to decide on an approach with your manager, looking at what works best for you, your role and your team.

Not only that – the new model also includes the option of working from abroad for up to 90 days a year!* But no matter where you are, we’ll make sure you’ve got everything you need to thrive, both in your work and home life, from day one.

Subject to having the right to work in the country of choice

To thrive here, you’ll need to:
Champion our customers. Whatever your role, you’ll be close to our customers. We care passionately about doing the best for them.
Help us make fearless choices. Our environment is fast-paced, agile and open. You’ll solve interesting and challenging problems, and be trusted and empowered to bring your ideas to life.
Walk the talk. Like us, you’ll be honest, stick to your promises and face the tough moments head-on.
Win smarter. You’ll be always on the lookout for a better way of doing things, going beyond ‘good enough’ and welcoming different points of view.
Be in it together. You’ll join an ambitious, diverse and all-round approachable team with a mix of ideas and talents who inspire each other to be better every day.

Zopa is proud to offer a workplace free from discrimination. Diversity of experience, perspectives, and backgrounds leads to great products and unique company culture. We simply can’t expect to empower our customers to better manage their money without challenging the current status quo. Creating the best place for money is no easy task, which is why we need talent from all walks of life.
