Who are we?
At Seccl, we’re on a mission to rebuild the infrastructure of investments and advice. We provide the technology that allows people to access financial markets – buying and selling investments and holding them in tax wrappers like ISAs and pensions.
Our software allows ambitious fintechs to quickly get to market with innovative investment or advice products – and helps financial advisers and investment managers to build stronger, more valuable businesses, by operating their own investment platform.
Ultimately, we want to create a world where everybody can access the financial markets, or find the help they need, more easily and affordably than ever.
We are part of the Octopus Group – an innovative, £12.5bn+ group of companies that’s on a mission to breathe new life into energy and financial services, and improve the lives of millions of people.
About the role
Our people, or ‘Secclers’, are at the heart of everything we do. Their growth and success are central to achieving our mission allowing anyone to invest – and invest well.
Reporting to our Head of People, the main purpose of this role is to work collaboratively with the People team and the business to shape and deliver our people roadmap to achieve our business goals.
You’ll be as a trusted partner to our teams providing advice, guidance, and support on all aspects of the Seccl people lifecycle and lead on projects that have meaningful impact and support our people to do the best work of their lives.

Helping us continuously develop and champion a workplace where we listen to our people and design our people roadmap ‘with and not for’ our team
