2020 was a year that nobody could have predicted, it’s been one of the most challenging years in recent memory for so many businesses. Our mission has always been to help small businesses get the funding they need to win. Through the Covid crisis, like many of our customers, we have adapted and pivoted and are proud to be playing our part in helping small businesses not just survive this period, but go on and thrive. In both the UK and US, we worked hard to become accredited to the government-backed lending schemes - CBILS and PPP respectively. In the UK, we are the 5th largest CBILS lender with over £2 billion lent in the UK in 2020, growing our market share to 25% (by CBILS loans approved). Across the pond in the US, we have approved $1 billion of PPP loans. All of this is only possible with the right team in place, we pride ourselves on hiring some of the smartest minds across our industry.

Wow, what a year it has been! Like many companies, due to Covid-19, we had to change the way we socialised here at Funding Circle. It’s actually been interesting to see how innovative we have been in coming together. Culture is very important to us, so we encourage Circlers (yes, that’s what we call ourselves!) to stay connected through various activities on not only a team level, but an overall company level as well. We converted all of our normal in person activities to virtual ones. On top of our standard meetings, through Zoom and Google Hangouts, we’ve planned a number of activities to help stay connected. To name some of the things we’ve done so far; company wide lockdown lunch, coffee roulette, wellness/exercise sessions, virtual happy hours and the biggest company quiz we have had to date (the leaderboard is getting super close and nearing the finals)!

I am constantly in awe of our Management team, especially through these challenging covid times, and so I felt it the right time to leave a review on what a great place Funding Circle is to work for.


None that I can think of.

Does there seem to be diversity at Funding Circle?

...Culture: There is a great deal of internal politics and favoritism at this company, each department has "cliques" and if you are not a part of that clique for some reason, you will be left to fend for yourself....Read More
