Metro Bank to create 900 jobs in 2018

The challenger bank has announced plans to recruit almost a thousand new members of staff this year, taking its total headcount to almost 4,000.

Metro Bank has revealed plans to create 900 new jobs in 2018, increasing its colleague base to almost 4,000, after smashing its target of recruiting an additional 500 new colleagues last year.

A key area of investment is 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 available, it will roll out sector-specific programmes across IT, HR and cashiering. With the schemes accredited by either City and Guilds or The Chartered Banker Institute, apprentices will receive a recognised qualification at the end of the 12-36 month programme.
