What's the story?
We were founded in 2014 as the UK's first app-based bank and were the country's first digital-only bank to be granted a regulatory licence.
We're based in the North East of England and we love the region for its culture, energy and sense of community, so we strive to add value wherever we can.
We've grown to a team of over 470 people, many of whom are based in the area. As a progressive employer, we understand the benefits of enabling a diverse bunch of people to shape our business, so we're actively making it easier for individuals from a range of backgrounds to work for us.
