Tesco Bank creates 100+ customer-centric roles

Tesco Bank is to create 120 new technology and change roles across its Edinburgh and Newcastle offices.

In a statement, the firm revealed the move was part of a wider investment in customer-centric solutions aimed at helping to better meet the needs of Tesco shoppers.

Roles include test, software and systems engineers, systems architects, solution designers, project managers, and IT and business analysts.

The firm expects that 100 of the new roles will be based in Edinburgh and 20 in Newcastle. This is in addition to the 20 roles created when Tesco Bank announced that Newcastle was to be the home of a technology hub, which launched in November 2019.

Tesco Bank adds while the roles will command a competitive salary, successful candidates will also benefit from the chance to work flexibly to suit lifestyles and take advantage of a range of discounts in Tesco stores. Development opportunities will also be on offer once in role.
