VouchedFor is on a mission to help people find the best advice for life’s big decisions. We are already the UK’s leading platform for consumers to find trusted financial advisers – but our ambition is so much larger. Today, only 10% of brits have received financial advice, and we want to change that. This role is an opportunity to own the products that will match the next 10 million people with their ideal financial adviser.
VouchedFor is one of the UK’s most exciting ‘fintech’ startups, backed by investors whose successes include Zoopla, eBay and Octopus Energy.
We’ve grown 60% since March 2020 and are set to scale rapidly as the leading review platform for professional services.
We bring together thousands of professional advisers, hundreds of thousands of satisfied clients, and millions of people needing great advice at the most important points in their lives. With the right dedication to customer feedback, rapid iteration and pioneering technology, our product has the power to literally land someone their dream home, access to their children, or a comfortable retirement.Recently, we’ve been piloting a transformational new product called ‘Safeguard’. It uses deep customer insights and analysis to help financial advisers deliver a much greater quality of financial advice and experience… with the potential to make over 1m customers happier and wealthier.
