A thousand jobs on offer as online bank heads North


Starling Bank is recruiting in Manchester for 1,000 roles across software engineering, data science, cyber security, operations and customer service.

The online bank has announced that it will open its new Manchester office in the first half of next year, following “an impressive year of growth.”

“What better place to set-up shop than in Manchester? As the world’s first industrial city, with three brilliant universities on its doorstep and a thriving technology scene, there was never any doubt that Manchester would house our first step into the North,” said Anne Boden, founder and CEO of Starling Bank.

It stated that it had chosen Manchester for its expansion due to the “deep pool of tech talent and rich cultural and creative heritage.”

The city will join offices London, Cardiff, Southampton and Dublin, which currently employ over 2,000 staff between them.

“We’ve expanded our headcount by 20% this year and only continue to grow. Our sights are now firmly set on Manchester, where we can draw from its potential workforce of more than seven million, allowing us to grow our headcount even further with some of the North’s finest talent,” added Susanna Yallop, Chief People Officer at Starling Bank.

The move comes after Starling achieved its first full year of profitability (£30m) and reached a 3m account milestone.
