Zuto to support growth with 150 new recruits

James Wilkinson Zuto CEO

Zuto plans to recruit 150 new team members this year, following a period of rapid growth.

The Manchester-based fintech firm, which evolved from Car Loan 4U, is currently achieving over 50% revenue growth year on year.

In the first four months of 2022, Zuto has already welcomed 105 new starters.

James Wilkinson, Zuto CEO, said: “Since the very start of our journey, we have been on a mission to change things for the better – not only for our customers, but also for our local community, our Zutonites, and the planet. We want to make the car finance experience as transparent as possible for customers and we are focused on creating a great environment for employees by fostering a culture of equality and sustainability.

“The recruitment drive will strengthen all departments of the company, including sales, contact centre and product development. In our technology division alone we have recently welcomed an intake of  graduate developers and a machine learning engineer. We are now on the lookout for more like-minded individuals and people looking to make a real difference.”

During 2020, the car finance company hired 100 new staff members, increasing its workforce by 40% during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Zuto has recently been awarded B Corp accreditation, joining a growing movement of companies that are using business “as a force for good”.

The process of becoming B Corp certified is conducted via the B Impact assessment, which involves a series of assessments on every aspect of a business’ social and environmental performance – from renewable energy sources to diversity & inclusion (D&I).

Wilkinson added: “Becoming a B Corp is the single proudest thing that has happened at Zuto and it comes at an exciting time for us as a business, as we go through a period of exponential growth.”
