Student loan firm to double workforce as it launches Irish service
Specialist student lender Future Finance is to more than double its workforce to almost 100 people over the next two years as it looks to launch on offering into the Irish market.
The Dublin-based firm is to take on an extra 50 workers, in addition to the 48 staff it currently employs.
The company offers loans specifically designed for both undergraduates and postgraduates to help them fund their higher education. The new jobs being created are in sales, marketing, customer support and product development.
The announcement comes after the company launched its lending offering in the UK 16 months ago.
Established in Dublin in May 2014 Future Finance has to date received over 25,000 applications from students at every university in the UK and has lent a total of over £16m.
Future Finance now plans to roll out its service across Europe, with Ireland due to launch by the end of 2015.
The project is supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through IDA Ireland.
