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.
What is a Graduate Analyst?
Analysts are the people that come up with strategies to drive our business forward. They’re analytical, confident with numbers, and have a passion for problem solving. They use data to generate insights, and then use these insights to identify opportunities in the market and think creatively to come up with new strategies and products. They work closely with our tech teams to figure out how we can use technology to come up with new ways of doing things. They then present their findings to our senior leaders, and then see their projects through to completion.
What will you be doing?
You could be working on a huge range of different projects across the business, from figuring out how we should enter new markets or what our new products should look like, to deciding our pricing strategy or optimising how much we should bid in our Google sponsored search campaigns.
Where your career could go:
As an analyst at Zopa, your career could follow one of several career paths, depending on your interests, skills and experiences. If strategy and tech is your thing, you could progress into a product management role as one of our squad leads. If you would like to stay closer to the numbers, you might go into management in our Credit Risk team. You might even become a Data Scientist if you develop the right toolset. We are committed to moving your career forwards and developing Zopa’s leaders of tomorrow.
Sean started as one of our graduates this year ...“After studying Maths at Cambridge, I decided to work for Zopa, a fintech company. I joined the Unsecured Personal Loan Tribe seven months ago, my main responsibility is making price changes and balancing yield, disbursals and interest rate. I’ve worked on a few challenging projects, such as designing EAD model and Pricing Elasticity Analysis. What differentiates Zopa from companies my friends are at, is here you are encouraged to use your own imagination and creativity to solve business problems, rather than follow orders robotically!”
