Before arriving here, hopefully you’ve taken a good look around our website and you have a strong sense of what Squirrel is all about, in terms of our work, our brand and our people. Maybe you know us well already and you’re just keeping an eye on the current opportunities that we have across our offices.
At Squirrel, we’re all about making a difference for Kiwis everyday. So, if you are thinking of applying to work at Squirrel, then please be sure to tell us up front: what difference do you think you would make?
We’re setting out to change the game of the financial services industry in NZ. You’ll find at Squirrel Group a company built on authenticity and dependent upon it’s people. A culture that doesn’t just respect curiosity, fairness and freedom but lives it. And in a community where the path you choose is your own, the places you can go are limitless.
We have a really strong culture and people often comment on our genuinely friendly and informal style. This, combined with a real passion for making a difference, makes Squirrel an exciting place to work.
Squirrel is one of the most awarded mortgage brokers in NZ. We are truly authentic and strongly believe in being real and true to ourselves and our clients. We’re always looking for like-minded people so if this is you, get in touch by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are committed to professional development and our approach to training. We have a dedicated team performance specialist for training and mentoring and our people regularly participate in external industry training courses.
We’ve also introduced our Professional Development Planning initiative, which gives our staff the opportunity to get whatever help they need to develop in their roles and personally, and has proven to be very successful.
In 2015, the entire company flew to the Gold Coast, Australia for a 3-day team building and training conference.
We’re also open to more innovative development opportunities such as sending a Squirrel Money staff member to San Francisco to attend a P2P lending conference.
Squirrel have chosen to donate to The Conscious Kid to help fund their anti-racism educational resources, and we provide these materials to all our staff and encourage them to make use of them. Racism is a global problem and it’s not enough to be non-racist. We must be anti-racist, and it starts with speaking up and getting educated.
We are committed to providing our own people and clients with an inclusive workplace and service. We are not perfect. There is work to be done! And we are up for as many uncomfortable chats as it takes.
Whilst we’re not a big carbon producer, we believe in doing our bit to be green. We’ve come up with a set of core actions to get measures in place to track our carbon footprint and our improvement in reducing it.
Lots of Squirrels want to make a difference and our team is dedicated to maintaining our stance on this.
We have a policy of refurbishing and recycling our used Macbooks for staff to provide for their families.
Squirrel is also a Corporate Supporter and Gold Mission Sponsor for the Auckland Rescue Helicopter Trust.
