Careers at Squirrel

What does Squirrel do?

Squirrel makes it super easy and fun to save for your goals and create - then keep to - your very own personalised budget.

After joining, simply add your monthly expenses and saving goals, then customise them with your own photos and names. This could be money for a holiday, your monthly Netflix subscription, a deposit for a new place or whatever excites you.

The app then keeps your savings safe and pays out your spending and bill money as you need it.

How does it work?

Squirrel is simply a bank account in your name – controlled by an app - that makes it easy to budget your money and build healthy savings habits. Each month as your salary gets paid into the app, three things happen:

  • Your savings money gets kept safe inside your savings goals, where you see them grow towards completion
  • Your bill money is kept safe, then paid out to your current account the day before your bills are due – so there's no need to ever have to worry about accidentally spending bill money!
  • Your spending money goes into your current account as normal – for fun and spending (you can even request to break this down into weekly amounts if you find it easier to budget for a week!)
