Job Description


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.

The iwoca People Operations team mission is to attract, engage, develop and retain the very best talent. We are laser focused on the candidate and employee experience. As People Operations Administrator you will take charge of:

  • Look after People-related data, making sure it’s accurate, regularly reviewed and compliant with GDPR.
  • Carry out general HR admin, including all onboarding, leaver and benefits admin. Manage background checks, reference letters, benefits applications, emergency contact reports, sickness absence, long service / anniversary awards etc.
  • Be the expert user of our HR system (PeopleHR) and help others to get the best use of it.
  • Collate monthly reports for payroll.
  • Get involved with adhoc people projects as required by the Head of People Operations and in support of the team.


We look for people that are smart, humble, motivated and who are always looking to improve. For this role, we are looking for candidates with:

  • Experience of HR information systems, ideally PeopleHR.
  • Obsession with customer service. Our employees are your customers and we want to provide the best experience possible.
  • Stellar organisational skills. You can prioritise workload effectively, and work accurately, at speed, displaying exemplary attention to detail.
  • Discretion! You understand the need for confidentiality working in HR.
  • Proactive problem solving skills. You are resourceful and work well independently.
  • Excellent communication skills and confidence in dealing with all levels of employees.
  • Sound knowledge of G Suite, especially Google Docs and Google Sheets.

In return, you’ll get a say in how things are done, the opportunity to make a difference to small business owners, and to work on big and challenging projects.
