Partner Funds Support Executive - Crowdfunder
Updated: Jul 6
Crowdfunder, we are a highly commercial operation, but it’s also a caring one. We recognise that when an employee walks into the office at the start of a working day, they don’t suddenly take leave of their families, their responsibilities, passions, and hobbies. So, don’t expect a stuffy, corporate environment.
Working on the partner side of the business you'll support the partner account team to ensure that projects are matched with the relevant partner funds they need to make their crowdfund successful and fund distribution targets are met.

This is an opportunity to be part of a team that is both partner and project-owner centric. We want to continue to deliver a focus on partner success but need to scale the team to be able to respond to the opportunity at hand.
