We are looking for a very special manager to lead our new tech company in Chicago.

Here at Richmond Group , we build and fund start-ups to improve the lives of ordinary people. In the UK we pioneered a flexible mid-sized loans business for hundreds of thousands of people unable to previously access credit. Whilst winning a stack of awards, we successfully expanded internationally. Now we are coming to the USA and are on the lookout for new recruits:

Do you have a passion for technology, with at least three years experience working in a consumer lending environment (excluding mortgages)?

Richmond Group does things differently. We will partner with you; giving you problems and expecting you to give us solutions. We believe that our success has been due to keeping things simple, clear communication and getting out of the way. You will be the centre of our US venture, coordinating with our overseas leaders and propelling us to success. From the start you will be hiring and developing a working team to grow our personal loans product in the digital space. Using your experience of underwriting and servicing, you will take responsibility for running the operations; talking to credit bureaus, liaising with brokers, meeting regulatory compliance, resolving customer disputes etc.

This is a Start-Up, everyday will be different and you will have to successfully navigate unforeseen challenges, you should expect problems and love solving them. We don’t care if you have a PhD or Agile Management qualifications; we only care about what you deliver. You must rely on yourself to find solutions because we won't be controlling how you make decisions.

This is a rare opportunity where you will take full ownership of your work. Behind you will be the financial backing, support and knowledge of Richmond Group, which includes assistance from one of the UK’s most successful entrepreneurs. Our other recent launches (on track to becoming $100m-$1b companies) show that there is no limit to our potential. If you are prepared to break out from your career, come be part of something new and exciting.
