Talent Partner

About Trussle
Owning your own home should be one of the most exciting times of your life. But for too long it's been overshadowed by the daunting process of getting a mortgage. We're working to change that. At Trussle we're using data, design, and technology to solve the mortgage problem once and for all.

Having raised investment of £ 19.3M from leading investors including Goldman Sachs Principal Strategic Investments, launched key partnerships with players such as uSwitch and Zoopla, and becoming the highest-rated online mortgage broker on Trustpilot, we're well placed to continue our rapid growth.

At Trussle, we're not just building the best online mortgage experience for home owners. We're also building a second home for our employees, with the necessary support to help them get out just as much as they put in. We're very aware that our team spends the majority of their waking hours at our office. So we invest in every one of them - from providing regular lunches, socials, and meditations sessions, to offering a week's paid Learning & Development budget so they can learn outside the office too. We may be a tech company, but we believe it's our people that make Trussle our second home.

About the Business Operations team
Our Business Operations team looks after the core operations of the company which ensures the smooth day-to-day running. We're focused on building internal infrastructure and optimising the effectiveness of some of Trussle's key central functions including Legal, Compliance, People, Talent, Finance, Office, and Community.

The People & Talent team supports Trussle to achieve our vision and mission. We know that our employees are the driving force that gets us where we want to go to. We are committed to our employees to create the optimal environment where they can become the best version of themselves. Our Talent function is responsible for shaping our talent acquisition strategy to make sure we fulfill our ambitious headcount targets both from a quality and quantity perspective. Our People Partner function supports everyone throughout their journey at Trussle, and ensures we stay connected and personal as we scale.
