Joining Nadia in the studio for this episode of the The Talent of FinTech Podcast is a brilliant duo from Funding Circle: Victoria Bradford, People Director; and Poonam Verma, Director of Talent Development, Culture and Belonging.
This episode is an exploration of a firm doing incredible things to redefine what it means to work in financial services. Both Victoria and Poonam share the values that are driving this transformational approach, sharing foundational principles such as:
Think Smart; Making It Happen; We Stand Together; Always Be Open; Live The Adventure; Being Obsessed Over The Customer.
And this is all underpinned by a wider commitment to DE&I. Most clearly displayed through an initiative they run named Open Circle, DE&I for Funding Circle is about creating a destination where everyone's voice is valued. Uniqueness is celebrated and no voice or question is muted.
Poonam and Victoria share what's next for a firm already offering so much. 2023 will see their values truly come alive- and we can't wait to watch this journey!
