A competitive salary
An opportunity to grow and develop – we give every employee £1,000 a year to grow their skills outside the company

Company DescriptionFounded in 2012, Capital on Tap is on a mission to help small businesses thrive. We believe small business owners are the foundation for growth in our economy, and yet today’s banking system has left them behind. To date, we have partnered with over 40,000 businesses across the UK deploying funding facilities of over £400 million to customers ranging from small and micro-retailers up to multinational supply chain groups.
What makes us different? We view ourselves as a technology company first, we just happen to be in finance as this is the best way we can help businesses achieve their dreams. We have built a dynamic and vibrant culture where our employee’s opportunities for growth are as big as their ambitions.
