Senior People Partner

Looking to do work that matters?

We get it – it’s why most people come to Cleo. Together we’re fighting for the world’s financial health, building an AI that helps our users make the best money decisions from day one. We’ve helped 4 million+ people so far with personalised insights and a voice you don’t expect in FinTech. But it’s time to do more.

As we enter the next phase, we’re looking for more improvisers, data geeks and grown ups who want to own their work and create meaningful change.

The opportunity:

We’re looking for a Senior People Partner to lead and grow our People (HR) team - overseeing Cleo's Business Partnering and People Ops teams.

It’s a close-knit team with ambitions to build and grow a company making a positive impact on people’s lives and their relationship with their finances. To help them, we’re looking to you to continue to build on our culture - one that employees across not only the UK, but globally will recognize as not just a great place to work, but as a place to come and make a difference.

Why should I apply?

This is the chance to join a unique startup and one of Europe’s fastest growing fintechs at the early stages of its journey.

This is a huge opportunity to step-up & scale-up. We have exciting plans for 2022 and beyond - we’re looking to grow exponentially so this has potential to be a career-defining role.
