Account Executive - Marketplace

Sales & Business Development London, United Kingdom


Who are we?

We want to help small businesses win. That’s why we’re here.

We connect small business owners to investors – to create jobs, help families and power economies – because we believe that people are made to do more. And we want to help them get the finance they need to thrive, creating thousands of jobs as they drive the economy forward.

So, we created the leading online marketplace for small business loans. Our investors have lent £13.7 billion in 171,000 loans to 122,000 small business owners. In a single year, we unlocked 100,000 jobs and contributed £7.2 billion to the UK economy. There’s never been a better time to join!

Be part of the team that changes everything. Let’s build the place where small businesses can get the funding they need to win and leave a legacy behind, forever. 

The team

The Marketplace team specifically represents what we see as the future of how we can 'build a better financial world' for SMEs in the UK. By partnering with other Lenders, the team are able to help more businesses achieve the funding they need.

What will you be doing?

As an Account Executive for the Marketplace team you’ll provide an exceptional service in managing loan applications for SME clients with a turnover up to £200,000 annually, to 3rd party lender partners. Working closely with both internal and external teams, you will supervise and manage these applications from start to completion and provide the client with an in-depth understanding of 3rd party lending and how this can benefit their business.

Do not worry if you don’t have any previous experience working in commercial finance – we can build on any knowledge gaps to help you succeed! 

  • Working towards a monthly target to achieve team and personal goals
  • Engaging with SMEs via a range of channels (calls/emails/sms) and help fulfil their funding requirements via our 3rd party lender panel
  • Working in an efficient manner and building relationships to be the ‘go to’ for both the client and the lender
