The ClearScore Group Is Creating Over 100 New Jobs In Edinburgh

The ClearScore Group, a British credit marketplace company, has announced expansion plans which will see the firm create more than 100 new jobs in Edinburgh.

The new positions will be based at an ‘open banking centre of excellence’ in the Scottish capital and will include skilled jobs including data engineers, data scientists, developers, design professionals and and product professionals.

There will be a recruitment event at the Kimpton Charlotte Square Hotel in Edinburgh tomorrow (Thursday 26th May 2022) for anyone interested in learning more about the roles and applying for one of the vacancies.

ClearScore currently employs around 200 people in the UK, so the new recruitment drive in Edinburgh will see the firm increase their headcount by more than 50 per cent in the coming months.

Announcing the plans, ClearScore Group’s chief executive officer and co-founder, Justin Basini, said:

“Open Banking has the potential to transform the credit industry and give people the opportunity to actively take control of their financial wellbeing. The tremendous growth we have seen in consumers securely sharing their banking data to simplify their personal finances shows clearly that open banking is moving to the mainstream.”

“Money Dashboard [a B2B personal financial management data business which ClearScore acquired a few weeks ago] enhances our offer to customers and users. And we are delighted that Edinburgh is to be the location for ClearScore’s second UK technology hub.”

"Scotland has a rich history of establishing and growing leading technology businesses, and we are privileged to now have access to a large, highly skilled talent pool, enabling us to continue to drive ClearScore forward to the benefit of our 16 million global users,” added the CEO.

Kate Forbes, the Scottish Government’s Cabinet Secretary for Finance & Economy, welcomed the announcement by ClearScore, saying:

“The Scottish Government welcomes the expansion of the ClearScore Group into Edinburgh. This move will bring a significant number of secure, high-value jobs to the city and further strengthen Scotland’s position as a leading hub for Digital Financial Services.”

“ClearScore’s decision to invest highlights the appeal of Scotland’s dynamic, vibrant Fintech ecosystem, highly skilled talent pool and access to world-class universities. We look forward to supporting ClearScore’s ambitions in Scotland as the company scales up its offering to a growing user base,” said Ms Forbes.

Explaining why they think that their employees drive their business forward,CreditScore’s website says:

“We want our people to perform at their best, so we trust everyone to work in a way that suits them. Focusing on output, not time spent at a screen. We have an inclusive culture where everyone is encouraged to look after their own wellbeing whilst growing and developing their career.”
