“Talent requirements are constantly shifting within the fintech ecosystem. There’s always a demand for new talent from fintechs. And in other cases, companies may require new skill sets as they grow and change direction.”

FinTech Australia has launched a new tool for the ecosystem, aimed at helping retain talent within the fintech ecosystem, named ‘The Big Match’.

Developed in partnership with talent platform Upplft, the retention tool aims to connect fintech industry jobseekers with new roles in the ecosystem.

Extra element of stability to the fintech talent market

General Manager of FinTech Australia, Rehan D’Almeida said: “Talent requirements are constantly shifting within the fintech ecosystem. There’s always a demand for new talent from fintechs. And in other cases, companies may require new skill sets as they grow and change direction.”

“By introducing this database, we’re aiming to add an extra element of stability to the fintech talent market. We also want to retain fintech talent within the ecosystem, and ensure new emerging companies are both aware of it, and have access to it.”

Neil O’Donnell, Founder and Co-CEO at Upplft, said: “Finding, attracting and retaining talent is a top priority for any business, particularly in the current market. We continue to help and provide support to the thriving fintech ecosystem across Australia and make people aware transitioning from other Industries that there are still many great opportunities in the fintech sector.”

For talent, the Big Match is free to use and the role matching process starts as soon as you register. No CVs required, the questionnaire only takes a couple of minutes to complete.
