Office Assistant - Part-time

full-time iwoca London

Join one of Europe’s leading Fintech startups.

At iwoca we believe finance should make life easier, not harder, for small businesses. When small businesses go to traditional lenders they are forced to deal with long waits, absurdly rigid criteria, and impersonal bureaucracies. We believe small businesses deserve a financing service that strips out the hassle; that gets to know each customer’s needs; that generates opportunities instead of problems. iwoca is finance, custom-built to expand possibilities for small business.

Our aim is to finance a million small businesses within a decade and so we need more smart, hands-on people to help us make our goal a reality.

Your mission will be to help maintain our wonderful culture, support the team with administrative tasks and help maintain a fabulous office space. We are looking for an enthusiastic, thoughtful, proactive person who can think on their feet, is keen to support and delight the iwoca team, and for whom no task is too big or too small! Whether it’s ensuring the coffee machine is always full of beans, handling visitors and deliveries on reception, supporting our Exec team with travel bookings youll play an important role in helping to create a really wonderful office environment.
