At Vida Homeloans, there's a true commitment to finding solutions for those facing financial complexities.

Put simply, the specialist mortgage lender helps those who are typically ignored by high street banks to get life moving. It aims to help everyone find a safe place to call home by providing loans to customers that fall outside the criteria of mainstream lenders.

Working exclusively with intermediary partners, Vida combines cutting-edge technology with a team of skilled and caring people to solve complex customer problems.

With over 11,000 customers, Vida has lent over £2.1bn since launching in 2015, and has continued to invest in technology, people, and processes to deliver a market leading proposition that helps more people with a wider range of home buying needs.

With such a clear sense of purpose, it is no surprise that Vida’s people are motivated and committed to the cause. Vida has worked hard to develop a positive and engaging working environment, centred around its people and core values — VIDA, standing for “visionary, inclusive, dynamic and authentic”.

Its team is compiled of motivated people who enjoy working collaboratively. The business has worked hard to develop a positive and engaging culture.

Quote from the top...
Our people are our most valuable asset and we are blessed with an incredible team of talented individuals. As a business we make it our mission to ensure we create the best possible environment for them to be challenged, develop their careers, have fun and thrive. As we are constantly evolving our business, we want our staff to feel empowered, be part of the change and so we provide an environment where they feel they can make suggestions and share their ideas and concerns. The Best Companies survey provides an excellent platform for us to obtain actionable feedback. Since undertaking the first survey last year, we have introduced Culture Champions, created focus groups and made a number of improvements that make Vida Homeloans a better place to work. But we don’t rest on our laurels and want to continue to improve and build a better, and even more engaged, organisation going forward. Our aim is to become 3 star accredited and will continue to focus on this through the coming years.
