How can you expect to spend your day?

You will join the team to assist with account management duties and helping acquire new partners to the business, though as a start-up your daily duties are less regimented than at larger more established companies and so an element of flexibility is required.

• If required you will be expected to visit new partners around the UK and explain how the platform works.
• Learn how "real time" tech services work.
• Learn how technology can and will disrupt an old and established industry like banking with data at the core of this new functionality.
• As this is a start-up business there will be ad hoc duties that arise that you'll be expected to help with.
