Otta's take on Zopa

Theo Margolius headshot

Theo Margolius

COO of Otta

Zopa has been a pioneering force in the world of finance since 2005, lending out billions in personal loans since its inception, before the launch of its bank in 2020. Its depth of lending experience makes it a digital bank with a difference - offering all the benefits customers have come to expect from a challenger bank, but backed up by 16 years of know how.

As a bank, Zopa has the flexibility to offer much more than loans to their customers, such as their fixed term savings accounts and credit card. Their model is clearly defined, with a focus on lending and saving rather than current accounts - and its investment in its banking license has clearly paid off. The company has recently seen significant investment that will accelerate the growth of its current products as well as support expansion into the business lending space. It has also made its first ever acquisition, of the ‘buy now, pay later’ platform DivideBuy.

Diversity & Inclusion at Zopa

Jamie Ferguson (Talent Acquisition Advisor)

  • We're always looking for passionate and talented people who can help us be the best place for money. We welcome everyone, regardless of age, disability, gender, sexual orientation, parental status, race or religion.
  • We run a successful mentoring program, with 28 mentors across the business. We believe this launching pad helps our internal talent stretch beyond their comfort zone, explore new avenues and grow into future leaders.
  • We’re focused on ensuring a fair approach to attracting talent, from how we advertise roles to our application and interview process. For all our hiring requirements we mandate 50/50 shortlists and diverse interview panels. We also run all our adverts through a recognised gender de-coder to ensure we attract and hire a diverse range of people. More recently we’ve been experimenting with new job boards and partnerships like Otta Jobs and BYP Network (Black Youth Partnership Network) to increase diversity in our candidate sourcing.
  • We’ve secured trail-blazing partnerships with organisations like Code First Girls, YSYS and BYP Network. We’ve already had huge success with our Code First Girls cohort who joined our tech community as Software Engineers and Database Administrators in January.
  • We encourage Zopians to create memorable career journeys, and internal mobility plays a huge part in this. All our live job vacancies are posted on our internal jobs board. Over the last 12 months, we’ve trained and supported many Zopians to make internal career moves and become compliance officers, developers, lawyers and HR specialists. In fact, 20% of our open roles in Q3 2021 were filled by internal candidates. This not only makes Zopa a great place to work, but also allows us to break down some of the systemic pipeline issues that we see in STEM professions.
  • Our Diversity & Inclusion focus groups and “All in” club celebrate diversity through various company events, such as quiz nights and “Bring your kids to work” day – our favourite is international food night!
  • Everyone at Zopa has different working styles, and we want to support them in any way possible. That’s why we’re committed to flexible working whether that’s from home, in the office or a combination of both. What’s more, our model includes the option of working from abroad for up to 90 days a year!
