Key to attracting the right FinTech talent to your business is having an accurate and attractive FinTech job description.
If you’re looking to hire for your FinTech company, here are some useful tips on how to write a job description that will attract the right calibre of candidates:
Have a compelling opening section to your job description
The FinTech industry is an exciting and quickly developing industry. So, it’s key to give candidates an insight into the potential of working in this industry and what they’ll gain from the role.
Have a job overview section at the top of your vacancy and use this as a chance to sell the role and your company.
Some FinTech candidates may be highly experienced and have certain requirements from a role, so it’s crucial to grab candidates’ attention early.
Have a clear role criteria
Whether you’re recruiting for a Financial Analyst role, Product Manager, or a Compliance Expert, it’s important to have a clear criteria for each FinTech role you’re hiring for.
Having a clear list of the requirements, qualifications, and skills that are essential to your role will allow you to attract candidates who will thrive in your role. For many roles in the finance and technology sector, certificates and qualifications are essential, so make sure to list what is required and the specific level needed.
Our top tip is to clearly define what is ‘essential’ and a ‘must-have attribute for the role’, versus what attributes of a candidate are more ‘preferred’. This will allow candidates to quickly see if they are eligible to apply to a role.
List what candidates’ day-to-day tasks will involve
So applicants can decide if this is a role they’d feel capable in carrying out, and also a role that they will enjoy doing, it’s important to describe the common tasks of the role.
For example, list any software candidates will be using or specify if they will they be managing teams.
It’s also useful to describe how their role fits into the wider company, and the teams they will be working closely with. This will all give candidates a well-rounded understanding of what the role will entail.
Describe all the benefits and perks of the job
To further sell your opportunity to candidates, you should include a ‘benefits of the job’ section towards the top of your FinTech job description. List any benefits, such as starting salary, travel opportunities, benefit packages, training opportunities, and company socials and trips.
While graduates value a competitive starting salary, they also value many other aspects of a role, like progression and training, so be sure to include all the perks of your opportunity.
