Metro Bank to recruit nearly 1,000 in 2018

A UK challenger bank is boosting the country’s financial sector to the tune of 900 new jobs this year.

Metro Bank announced this morning these new jobs would take its headcount to just short of 4,000.

The group adds a key focus of its expansion will be in its apprenticeship scheme, with the bank last year becoming a certified employer provider, meaning that as well as hiring apprentices, it is also able to deliver apprenticeship training through its dedicated in-house facility, Metro Bank University.

With around 100 places up for grabs, the bank will roll out sector-specific programmes accredited by either City and Guilds or The Chartered Banker Institute across IT, HR and cashiering.

By hiring for attitude and training for skill, the bank added it focuses on supporting and developing its colleagues, last year promoting 25% of employees who had been with the bank a year or more. Metro Bank University has expanded to three campuses across London, offering staff more than 75 classroom-based courses and 130 e-learning sessions to help progress and develop their skills.
