Revolut has detailed plans to boost its headcount in line with global growth, with a particular focus on its sales, customer support and fincrime teams.

The neobank and fintech expects its global employee numbers to increase by 40% over the remainder of the year from its current standing of 10,000, with 70 roles being advertised in its founding market of the UK.

This would build on the growth trajectory the company has already experienced this year regarding headcount. Revolut has increased its staffbase up to  10,000, marking an uptick of 20% on the 8,000 employees the firm started the year with. 

The majority of roles will be created across the three aforementioned teams, and the company plans to keep remote working a core element of its hiring policy. Over a third of its workforce are based outside London, where the company is based.

Francesca Carlesi, CEO of Revolut UK, said: “Revolut continues to grow from strength to strength; and to support that growth it is essential that we recruit the best talent from across the industry. 

“10,000 employees is an exciting milestone but we’re not stopping there. We are delighted to be expanding across our global markets, including the UK, with hundreds of new roles across a range of specialities, all at a time when others are cutting back. 

“As our home market, the UK is at the centre of Revolut’s growth, and is an integral part of not only the company’s expansion locally but also internationally. We look forward to welcoming the next batch of Revoluters over the next few months to help build Revolut across the globe.”

Revolut has experienced significant growth since its foundation in 2015. Bundling up a presence across a number of major markets, the fintech’s services encompass banking, payments, currency exchanges, commodities and cryptocurrencies, among other areas.
The company now counts 40 million global customers, with eight million in the UK alone. The acquisition of a UK banking licence has been a continuing source of frustration for the firm, although it has been able to secure licences in other markets such as Mexico.
