Loot gives handouts to top customer services people to recruit staff

Contactless Mastercard firm Loot is using a recruitment mix of job board advertising, linking up with universities and referral cards in a bid to fill 50 new roles.

In a statement released this week, the digital and current account and contactless Mastercard revealed the new recruits, which will include full and part-time customer operations advisers and various tech positions, will be based in its new South-West office in Bristol.

Loot added it is looking to connect with a vast pool of talented individuals, which will continue to rise according to the growth of its customer base.

To help recruit for the roles, a Loot spokesperson told Recruiter it will use referral cards for when staff are out and about, and encounter people with excellent customer service skills, alongside job advertising including ads on job boards. The company also has plans to partner with Bristol universities to recruit students to fill part-time roles.
