Rewards and benefits

As a market leading bank, we like to think we’re pretty good when it comes to sums and number crunching so we know for a fact that happy employees equals happy customers. That’s why we offer our people a fantastic package which knocks the spots off our competition.

So what does this mean? Simple;

For starters we offer an attractive salary package which increases as you develop within your career. From day one you will receive a flexible benefits package which is tailor made for you, by you. Now how cool is that?

We give you a generous holiday allowance so you can let off steam, unwind or do whatever takes your fancy. For that extra bit of flexibility, you even have the option to buy or sell up to a weeks holiday.

We also understand that sometimes it’s the small things which make a big difference so we have a whole host of on-site facilities designed to save you time and make life a little easier. Where else can you shop at work, visit the gym and get exclusive access to discounted concert tickets.
