Vive is looking for a Head of Treasury to build and lead this function of our Finance team. Reporting into the CFO, this role is responsible for liquidity, investments and financial risk management related to Vive's activities. You'll need significant treasury experience as well as an interest in building the function up from scratch and developing new tools and processes.

Who are we?

Vive is a new kind of bank; one focused on building exceptional customer experiences. We simplify the world of personal finance, with fair products, transparency, and innovative technology at the heart of everything we do.

We’re launching with a simple range of products, designed around the needs of customers that high street banks have left behind. Our personal loans and fixed-rate savings accounts will provide greater choice, with eligibility up front, end-to-end digital management, and no hidden fees (ever).

We’re also committed to giving customers the tools they need to succeed in the long-term. There are probably enough current accounts out there, so we won’t be offering one. Instead, The Vive Money Manager app leverages the power of Open Banking, allowing users to view all of their existing accounts and products in one place, with personalised insights and a credit score tracker helping them to stay one step ahead.

Vive has received its UK banking licence, with restriction, from the Bank of England, and is aiming to launch in Spring 2020. Find out more at
