Growing a business, without growing your people is old school. Hitting your career ceiling sucks. Career development needs to be more human, progressive and - that’s right, we’re gonna say it - fun. We believe everyone should feel valued at work, in fact this is Pleo’s mission.

As a People Growth Partner at Pleo, your core mission is to make people feel valued, by building an outstanding and forward thinking L&D strategy. You’ll succeed if this will not only retain, foster and accelerate our current Pleoer’s but also attract the best talent. 

Your aspirations should be that everyone is talking about how Pleo is "the place to work" to accelerate one’s personal and professional growth. Where our employees, who are at the core and heart of our business, feel energised, are actively engaged and feel like they can grow at the same rate as Pleo does as a company. 

But hold on, setting up a few “how to have a salary review” workshops won’t do the trick. As a company we think about development holistically. We think of attributes like wholeness, authenticity, emotional awareness when we talk about People Growth. We want our employees to bring their whole self to work, so we believe investing in the growth of their whole selves is what will take Pleo to the next level. 

Here’s a glimpse into a “Day in the life of..”. Historically we have put a lot of emphasis on growing our organisation from within and as example promoted Pleoer’s onto the leader path, being first time managers. Whilst we had developed an internal leadership course, introduced a culture of feedback and sent managers on training courses - the experience of craftsmen still wasn’t the same in all departments. 

You’ll be helping to set standards of what great people growth at Pleo look like and to build programs around this while keeping track of all our different stakeholders. You will advise leaders of the organisation around offers, learning gaps and keep track of attendance to our company-wide trainings.  

Our leadership style within the organisation is bottom up and this is also how we think our people will develop as such - in a collective effort of growth. And generally speaking, we want everyone, no matter if craftsmen or leaders within Pleo to have access to all development resources they need to get to their next level. 

What does this role entail?

  • Work with Strategic People Partners and Competence Owners to identify and action learning/skills gaps
  • Embed a people-centred growth mindset across the whole of Pleo, focusing on new needs for learning and re-skilling as part of our hypergrowth
  • Manage the process around our training offers 
  • Act as a sparring partner to the organisation and help them develop and create programmes, e.g., onboarding and continuous growth across Pleo

You’ll thrive in this role if you

  • Have experience building and developing learning/development systems
  • Have strong attention to detail and are great at organising processes
  • Have strong stakeholder management skills
  • Are confident at multi-tasking and working with multiple stakeholders simultaneously
  • It’s a plus if you’ve taken part of scaling up a company, but otherwise you must be able to thrive in ambiguity and a fast-paced, fast-changing environment

Your colleagues say that you

  • You are a great advisor and listener
  • You love learning and can rally people around you to try new things with you
  • You care deeply about your colleagues and the environment they and you can thrive in 
  • You are easy to work with and respected for your fast and high quality execution

  • Ability to work remotely (anywhere between the east coast of the Americas to European timezones)...
  • ...or onsite if you want to (Copenhagen, Stockholm, London, Madrid, Montreal, Berlin, Lisbon)
  • Lunch is on us - whether you are working remote or at one of our offices 🍜

  • Paid parental leave - we want to make sure that we're supportive of families and help you feel that you don't have to compromise your family due to work 👶🏻
  • €2500 annual Flex Benefits budget (maybe you want to buy additional holidays, pay for the gym, book a professional coach or pay for part of your MBA - entirely up to you!). We know everybody prioritises different benefits. So, our Flex Benefits package lets you choose what best suits you. Ask us about what we offer; we’ll be happy to outline more!


At Pleo, we use English for all our internal communication to keep everyone on the same page; please submit your application in English unless otherwise stated above.

We’re on a mission to make everyone feel valued at work. That’s only achievable if our team reflects the diversity of the world around us - and that starts with you, hitting apply, even if you are worried you might not tick all the boxes! We embrace and encourage people from all backgrounds to apply - regardless of race/ethnicity, colour, religion, nationality, gender, sex, sexual orientation, age, marital status, disability, neurodiversity, socio-economic status, culture or beliefs.

Not everyone interviews the same: if you have accessibility issues that you would like us to know about, send an email to our Inclusion team at and we’ll make sure to design an interview format that works for you.

Why work here?

Working at Pleo means you're working on something very exciting: the future of work. Through fintech we've seen a way to impact how people work; we think company spending should be delegated to all employees and teams, that it should be as automated as possible, and that it should drive a culture of responsible spending. Based on some pretty amazing Series C-round investment in 2021 we think we're onto something big.

So, in a nutshell, that's Pleo. Today we are a 500+ team, from over 54 nations, sitting in our Copenhagen HQ, London, Stockholm, Berlin, Madrid, Montreal, or Lisbon offices – and quite a few full-time remotes in 22 other countries! Being HQ'd out of Copenhagen means we're inspired by sensible things like a good work-life balance. If you don't work in the office with us we'll help you get up the best remote setup possible, and will fly you in for our amazing team camps ✈️
