Our most important investment is our people – the staff we choose and the customers we attract. They all make Swoop, well… Swoop
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 vibe.
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 Covid-19 – we find them the finance they need, when they need it.
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 5th October 2020, Swoop has 42% female representation in senior management. Our target is to reach 50% by the end of March 2022. Whilst Swoop is proud to already sit at 42%, we believe that 50% should be the ambition.
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
We work with world class partners to help us support businesses with finance
