We're creating a standalone UK bank for our customers and all our employees to be proud of, focused on driving change in the banking industry. We'll do this by putting the customer at the heart of everything we do, servicing the communities in which we reside with the level of professionalism and friendliness that they expect.

If they walk out of the branch with all their questions answered and with a smile on their face, you'll have done your job.
We are looking for a people-person, with the proven ability to deliver outstanding customer service. You'll have great listening skills and the ability to communicate with our customers to help them make the best financial decision.

You'll have a desire to continuously develop in the role and will always be looking for opportunities to improve your skills and knowledge.
