Zopa to let staff work from abroad

UK FinTech Zopa has announced that it will let its employees work from abroad for 120 days out of the year.

Staff members that want to work from another country will need final approval of the destination from their line-manager and evidence of the right to work.

The British firm has also introduced flexible bank holidays – which means religious bank holidays can be exchanged.

It will now also offer 16-weeks maternity, pregnancy, paternity, and adoption leave, as well as three weeks bereavement leave.

“The world of work has undergone unparalleled change, demanding greater flexibility and the increased desire to feel that our work is meaningful,” said Helen Beurier, Zopa chief people officer. “Our employees now look for jobs that come with the flexibility to support their life goals.

“We believe this policy will be a huge success, as it will enable our people to experience a full and rewarding life with incredible learning and development opportunities.”
