Funding Circle has offered to fast-track working visas for Ukrainian workers and to provide a relocation grant of £4,000.
The lending giant has teamed up with Job Aid to help fund UK visas for highly-skilled workers who have been displaced as a result of the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
There are currently six full-time jobs available by Funding Circle for professionals fleeing Ukraine. They include a senior data engineer, a software engineer on the originations team, a senior front-end engineer, and a site reliability engineer.
All jobs are based in London and come with a relocation allowance of £4,000 to help with travel and moving costs. Funding Circle will pay for the UK visa application of any successful applicants.
“In response to the devastating conflict in Ukraine, effective immediately, Funding Circle will sponsor any highly-skilled workers who are eligible for any of our open roles, to help them find refuge in the UK with their families,” the company said.
“For any individuals displaced as a result of conflict – in the Ukraine or any other country – Funding Circle will fast track eligibility and interview process for any open role.”
Last month, Zopa Bank announced that it will support up to 50 work visas for eligible Ukrainian applicants already in the UK with backgrounds in engineering, technology, and data analytics or with experience in consumer financial services.
The former peer-to-peer lender called on the entire fintech community to provide employment for Ukrainians in the UK and to help those fleeing the Russian invasion.
Other fintech jobs available via Job Aid include roles for Java developers at Varengold Bank, and engineering managers at online real estate platform ImmoScout24.
