Metro Bank is set to open a new store in central Watford in 2018, creating 25 new jobs for the community.
The challenger bank is currently searching for people who will make the branch a real hub for the local community.
The store will be located at 113 High Street, WD17 2DQ and have thousands of safe deposit boxes on offer, as well as a free coin-counting machine.
“We’re excited to land the banking revolution in Watford and become part of the local community,” said Craig Donaldson, CEO at Metro Bank.
“At Metro Bank, we’ve built a bank around our customers.
“A bank that gives people choice.
“Whether they want to bank face to face in store, online, on-the-go or through UK-based 24/7 contact centres, they’ll be assured that they’ll always receive unparalleled service.”
All Metro Bank stores are open 362 days a year from 8am to 8pm Monday to Friday, 8am to 6pm on Saturdays and 11am to 5pm on Sundays and bank holidays.
