Account Manager

    iwoca Published: May 16, 2018

    Description

    iwoca is breaking down the barriers that stop Europe’s 20 million small businesses from accessing finance. Traditional bank loans have slow application processes, inflexible terms and burdensome criteria. In contrast, we use cutting-edge technology to offer flexible access to credit with a five minute application process and a decision in hours.

    Since 2012, we've lent over £400 million to over 20,000 businesses across Europe. Our customers include everything from cafés to car dealers, salons to solicitors. Along the way we have built a sophisticated technology platform, won numerous awards and grown a fun, and vibrant team.

    However, we’re still near the start of our journey – our aim is to finance a million small businesses within a decade and so we need more smart, hands-on people to help us reach this goal.

    The Role

    Our Account Managers are iwoca’s frontline, offering exceptional service to their portfolio of customers while simultaneously driving business growth. They own the customer relationship from when they sign up, all the way through to renewal and advocacy.

    At iwoca, we really love our customers, we want them to have the best possible experience. We understand that financial matters can be confusing and frustrating for small businesses, so our Account Managers work hard to understand our customers’ financial needs and determine how we can most effectively support them with our product to achieve their business goals.

    Our Account Managers are skilled at building trust, explaining how iwoca works and nurturing successful long term relationships with our customers. To help us do that, we use relevant data and analytics (such as customer health scores, lifetime value, customer feedback and surveys), while at all times providing excellent customer service.

    • Drive change throughout the business through structured feedback, ensuring we always provide customers with the best possible experience across all aspects of iwoca
