Head of Partnerships


Partnerships are a crucial part of Tide’s go-to-market strategy - we aspire to a partnerships program that is unparalleled in the business banking space. This means establishing a large network of relationships that open up go-to-market opportunities, strengthen our value proposition, and enhance the offerings of our partners. 

Our partners are both small and large. We approach the small ones through a mixture of sales and marketing channels. And we cultivate the larger ones through longer-term bus dev efforts.

Our model for partnerships clearly works for key segments and we’re now looking to double down. As such, we’re looking for a General Manager to take our partnerships efforts to the next level. 

Our ideal candidate brings a unique mix of sales, marketing, operations, and product skills. They have experience managing and growing high-performing teams. And they are passionate about Tide’s mission to empower business owners to get on with doing what they love.

About Tide 

Tide is about doing what you love. We believe the world would be a better place if more people gave it a shot. We’re building a business current account that gives time back to those who work for themselves, so they can get back to doing what they love. 

Our members have a fully-functioning account in 5 minutes. It gives them an integrated set of all the financial services they need to run their business in a mobile and desktop environment. 

Tide launched in January 2017 and in July, announced $14m funding from leading venture capital firms (Anthemis, Creandum, LocalGlobe and Passion) and industry insiders. We have grown extremely fast since launch and have ambitions to sign 50m businesses up, over the coming years, across the world. More significantly, we have the privilege of progressing a mission which is genuinely important for the world.
