Entrepreneurship is in our DNA

We’re working hard to reinvent the way businesses experience finance – we’re simplifying the complexities, ensuring transparency, eliminating inconvenience and empowering our customers to easily make money decisions every day.

When we say ‘team’ we mean our customers, too. Like us, they are risk-takers, everyday entrepreneurs who believe in making a difference. They, too, contribute to our culture.

When they flourish, we celebrate. When our customers invest in more jobs, sponsor the local sports club, export for the first time or invest in new facilities, it makes us happy.

It’s especially rewarding when we see our work help businesses survive shock events like the pandemic and the cost of living crisis – we find them the finance they need, when they need it.

HM Treasury Women in Finance Charter

The UK Government’s Women in Finance Charter commits financial services firms to support women’s progression into senior roles. Swoop is proud to be signatory to the charter.

As of the 1st April 2021, Swoop has over 44% female representation in senior management. Our target is to reach 50% by the end of 2022. Whilst Swoop is proud to already sit at over 44%, we believe that 50% should be the ambition for all organisations.

Swoop has growth plans over the next 18 months and we are committed that retaining and increasing diversity (inc. gender) at senior management level is one factor which is a key to success.

Swoop will continue to bake-in inclusivity to our organisation so that we continue to attract, and retain, a talented workforce. Direct interventions include a member of the senior management team having responsibility for D&I oversight, requirement for gender and name blind applications and the linking of diversity targets to senior management bonuses.

Swoop's values - G R I I T

Global

Our mission is to solve access to finance for all small business owners. The problem we are solving isn't unique to any one place or region, so we must have a global outlook in what we do and how we think.

Global

What does this mean:

We’re open minded. We respect people and their culture, beliefs and values. We’re curious, like to travel, we aim to understand people and forge long lasting relationships with them.

Resilience

The life of a small business is very turbulent, so often they need to have thick skin and deal with adversity more times than they’d like. As such, we also need to be resilient in how we work; we need to be able to deal with things not always going exactly right or on time. It's how we overcome these challenges that we grow and improve our careers. These experiences will serve to make us more rounded.

Resilience

What does this mean:

Obstacles shouldn’t be seen as deterrents but as opportunities that can be solved. Giving up on something isn’t cool and battling to get something achieved is to be celebrated.

Integrity

We’re in the business of making a positive impact on the lives of business owners around the world. Therefore, it's crucial we act with others in a way that we would act for ourselves or for our family. We’re straight up and work to make the biggest impact through laying out the best possible solutions for our customers.

Integrity

What does this mean:

We think long term. Do right by the customer and you’ll forge a long lasting relationship that will be a lot more fruitful than any short term wins.

Innovate

Our ideas, energy, and willingness to learn and listen from our customers is what will drive us to be the best company we can be. What we have today won’t serve our customers well in years to come, so it's essential we create a culture of sharing ideas, feedback, and gathering insights from customers, peers and market trends. So, we massively champion people who share these ethos and are keen to share.

Innovate

What does this mean:

Share your voice, ideas, insights or those of our customers or other thought leaders that will help drive our business, product, and culture forward.

Together

You’ll undoubtedly come across many a competitive soul at Swoop but what makes it the most sweet is that we’re competitive as a team. When we win through product releases, sales, marketing campaigns, customer acquisition, customer conversion and new partnerships, we do as a team. What gives us our competitive edge is the collective. We champion those that share their knowledge and insight with the group to help everyone improve and make us a more formidable team.
