TSB is creating 15 new relationship manager roles to support small businesses and entrepreneurs across the UK.
The challenger bank is hiring in Manchester, Birmingham, Leicester and Edinburgh as it gets set to take on the business banking market in the same way that it has already challenged consumer banking.
A multi-million-pound investment programme is already underway to build new banking services for SMEs across the UK – led by TSB's new commercial banking director Richard Davies.
The announcement follows news revealed last month by TSB – along with its parent Sabadell – whereby up to £100m of funding would be available to invest in SMEs and start-ups based in regions across the UK.
“We have huge ambitions in the small business banking market and we're on the cusp of making some real waves,” said Richard.
“The recruitment of TSB's new relationship managers is a chance for people to get involved in something right from the offset – to help shape how small businesses are looked after right across the country.
“Small businesses need banking partners who want [to] actively support them with fresh thinking and new services – to help reinvigorate local communities and unlock the true potential of small businesses in the UK.”
TSB has entered into a partnership with recruitment company The Curve Group, which will lead the attraction and selection of the bank's new commercial banking team.
Richard added: “It's great to be growing our commercial banking team at TSB, and I'm pleased we're partnering with The Curve Group to deliver on our ambition of building a diverse and inclusive business bank that truly reflects the communities we serve.”
