Octopus Labs is the fintech innovation unit of the Octopus Group. We fuse track record and technology, expertise and UX, to build financial products the way they should be: trustworthy, rewarding and easy-to-use.
2 years ago we launched our first business, a peer-to-peer lending platform called Octopus Choice. We now have over 8,000 customers with assets under management over £190 million. Our second business Octopus Cash was launched 18 months ago with an AUM of £63 million today. Both businesses are growing at a rapid pace and each has the potential to grow to >£1 billion in the next few years.
Working at Octopus Labs provides an opportunity to combine the exciting pace and enthusiasm of a start-up, with the broader benefits of a large, well-capitalised business that manages more than £7 billion and has over 280,000 customers.
As a Management Accountant for Octopus Labs you will be a key member of a growing finance team and will have the opportunity to progress your career in finance and accounting whilst surrounded by brilliant and creative tech-focused people. You’ll learn more and be exposed to more than you ever could have imagined in a finance role, all whilst knuckling down with your CPD and working towards becoming that perfect finance all-rounder.
Of course, you’ll be getting stuck in with the classic accounting and reporting requirements of the team. In addition you’ll also have plenty of opportunities to drive the agenda on a variety of things that the finance team currently have a view over:
First and foremost, we are looking for somebody who will be a great fit. You will likely be 1-2 years post-qualified and have solid knowledge and skills which are sharpening and developing every day (and we’ll make sure they continue to do so!). What is key, however, is an emphasis on more of the soft skills that will allow you to get the most out of the role and the team:
Plenty of reasons to come on board!

Random acts of kindness make the workplace a better place. So, go out of your way to be helpful, and give people reasons to smile.

Every great business started with a flash of inspiration. If you’ve got a great idea, don’t keep it to yourself.
At Octopus, we recognise the importance of embracing diversity in order to create a high performance culture.
