Careers

We’re on the most exciting journey – want to join us?

At Optimum, we really do believe that it’s our people who are our main competitive advantage – the ‘thing’ that sets us apart from our competitors.   To this end we want to ensure that we recruit and retain the very best people.

“We have bold ambitions, but ones we know we can achieve with the right people on board.  With that in mind, we are always looking for exceptional people”

– Sam Marshall, Chief Executive Officer.

People join Optimum and stay – not only because we like to nurture our internal talent and support people’s career aspirations through our succession planning initiatives, but because colleagues are invested in our plans for the future and can see the opportunities coming their way.  It’s not all about work though, we have a lot of fun, celebrate success and support local charities along the way.

We’re building for the future – do you want to build for yours?

We are always on the lookout for talented people who get a kick out of doing a great job, have a passion for excellence, and love working collaboratively with other colleagues. 

If you want a fast-paced environment, real career progression opportunities and somewhere to showcase your skills and experience, this is the place for you!

We currently have over 100 colleagues and are looking to increase this number significantly.  Our company values are very important to us, and we recruit people who actively demonstrate those same values. 

So, if you want to be involved in our exciting expansion plans and have the chance to really shape and influence the way the business grows then we’d love to hear from you. 

In return for your commitment, you’ll have the chance to develop your career in a dynamic environment, working alongside the top talent, and exceptional leadership team, that have helped us in our success so far.

Our benefits

We offer competitive salaries, 25 days’ holiday + bank holidays (and a day off on your birthday to help you celebrate in style!), private healthcare, life assurance, annual bonus, and up to 8% matched contributory pension … but the real benefit of working at Optimum Credit is the opportunity to work with talented people who get a kick out of doing a great job, have a passion for excellence, and love working collaboratively with colleagues.

At Optimum we are all ‘colleagues’.  We may have different roles and responsibilities but we all have something unique to bring to Optimum. 

We value this uniqueness and recognise that having a diverse team is the best way to succeed, so we welcome applications from suitably qualified people from all sections of the community.
