Future Finance, the Dublin-based specialist student lender, today announced its intention to create a further 50 new positions over two years, in addition to the 48 it currently employs, as it expands its business across Europe, including in Ireland. This marks another major milestone for the company after successfully launching in the UK 16 months ago. The new jobs being created are in sales, marketing, customer support and product development.
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 £16 million (approximately €22.1 million). In addition, the company is now lending over £1 million per week (approximately €1.4 million) and Future Finance has established 17 partnerships with universities in the UK including the world renowned London Business School. Future Finance 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 & Innovation through IDA Ireland.
