Guinea pigs wanted

Posted on 12 Oct 2005 by Zopa

As we constantly change and (hopefully!) improve Zopa, we hugely value input from our members and visitors. Right now, we’re gearing up for some major developments and we need your help! We want to create a panel of people who are willing to spare a couple of hours one evening a month for the next few months to work with us as we develop new services, screens and concepts. Some of the evenings will be more classic focus group type sessions, some will be one to one interviews, and some will be usability sessions (less scary than they sound - we’re interested in how people use the site, and what works, and what just confuses the heck out of people!).

If this sounds like something you might be interested in, we’d love to hear from you! You need to be able to get to our London office (near Oxford Circus) for about 7pm and be prepared to stick with us for several sessions. We’ll pay you £50 a time for your trouble, and can probably promise some food and drink (at the very least, the Zopa fridge is well stocked with chocolate and wine!).

Still with me? Great - send an email to and I’ll get in touch. If we aren’t able to accept you, please don’t be offended - we only need 10-12 people, and we want a good cross section of people who are interested in Zopa.

Look forward to meeting you!

UPDATE: We’ve had lots of interest, but we’re still looking for more people! Drop me a line if you’re up for it - even if you’re not in the UK. (I’m sure we can work out some way of getting your input!)
