Revolution is pulling extensive job offers for new graduates as the challenger bank continues to audit its operations and pick the numbers in an internal review dubbed “Project Prism.”
A spokesperson told PYMNTS on Wednesday morning (September 7) that job postings had been rescinded for four candidates “due to changing business needs in a specific team.” He said the company apologized to applicants and offered them financial support, as well as job search assistance like interview preparation and recruitment advice.
“This is not a sign of a broader hiring freeze; on the contrary, we are actively recruiting. We have more than 200 open positions. On our seventh anniversary (July), we surpassed 5,000 employees globally and our net headcount continues to grow,” the spokesperson told PYMNTS.
He added that Revolut was not cutting costs and had increased its “overall staffing budget” since the review began.
“We have over 300 new members month after month over the past 3 months and have publicly committed to increasing our Crypto membership by 20%,” the spokesperson told PYMNTS.
