Metro Bank has announced plans to grow its business and commercial banking arm with 100 new appointments in 2018.
The company is also creating a further 800 jobs across the rest of the bank, bringing its total headcount to almost 4,000.
Since launching in 2010, the bank has created over 3,000 jobs, including 500 to support its business and commercial customers.
Craig Donaldson, CEO at Metro Bank (pictured above) said: “We’re disrupting UK banking by giving control back to customers when it comes to how, when and where they do their banking.
“We’re passionate about supporting and understanding our business customers, that’s why we’re doing things differently at Metro Bank.
“We hire colleagues who are committed to providing an outstanding banking experience – while simultaneously investing in our technology to ensure a seamless service – meaning our customers receive the very best in both service and convenience, whatever the channel.”
The Metro Bank University has three campuses across London and offers over 75 classroom-based courses and 130 e-learning sessions to help its employees progress and develop their skills.
Last year, the bank promoted 25% of its employees who had been with the bank a year or more.
Metro Bank also passed its 2017 recruitment target of 500, as well as increasing the number of local business managers by 30%.
