  • About Good With

    Good With has a vision to help young adults access fairer finance and avoid negative financial events, problem debt and financial hardship. Young adults are at a disadvantage when applying for financial products because the data lenders hold about them is limited. This means that the banks see lending to these customers as high risk. This group is also less likely to have lived experience with managing financial commitments, making them more vulnerable than other groups to experiencing problem debt.

    At Good With, we recognise that financial behaviours are the product of financial knowledge and understanding, and a complementary financial cognitive skill set. Financial capability can be improved with appropriate education and support, and individuals’ wellbeing (both financial and otherwise) is likely to improve as a function of this education. This means that, with support, young adults who do not currently possess financial skills can develop them and flourish in their financial lives. 

    We believe that we can demonstrate a person’s readiness to commit to financial responsibilities via alternative means to the usual credit scoring methodology. Using a multi-disciplinary, research based approach, we are designing a product that will:

    1. Educate users about financial skills (both practical and cognitive/behavioural)
    2. Track users’ progress, and
    3. Deliver a credible and robust measure of user readiness to financial service providers 

    We do not only want to teach users about financial facts and figures. We also want to help users to develop a cognitive financial tool kit that will help them to make informed decisions about money. This includes, but is not necessarily limited to: helping users quantify risk, giving users confidence to discuss money, and equipping users with the tools to bounce back from financial mistakes.


    About the role

    Our goal is to gather empirical evidence to demonstrate that using the Good With app  improves financial wellbeing. If we succeed in demonstrating this, we will be able to make a case for the Good With app being socially prescribed (by relevant charity partners/NHS) to prevent poor financial outcomes for vulnerable users. 

    This role will support the Financial Wellbeing Research Strategist with support from the wider team, work packages associated with this role are:

    1. to bring relevant approaches from clinical psychology and apply them to the design of our educational frameworks, 
    2. to work with our behavioural data scientist to support the development of scales and statistical models that accurately predict financial wellbeing and vulnerability,
    3. to lead a research projection conjunction with the University of Plymouth to empirically measure user outcomes,
    4. to support UX research including participant recruitment, interviews and focus groups as directed by the senior UX strategist. 

    This is an exciting role for a BSc Psychology graduate, ideally with a relevant masters degree and/or practical experience in clinical psychology, who would relish the opportunity to translate their learning into an innovative digital intervention that will scale nationally and internationally.
