Military banking

Financial support and career opportunities for the Armed Forces

We signed the Armed Forces Covenant in 2019 because we’re dedicated to supporting current and former military members, and their families, in serving our country.

We understand how challenging military life can be, so our products and services are designed to make managing your finances simple and easy – no matter where you are in the world.

From little things like accepting BFPO addresses, to storing your valuables in safe deposit boxes, our people-people are here to help our military community in any way they can.

Spending time abroad is a huge part of military life, but our app and Online Banking can keep you connected. Open new accounts in minutes and get personalised insights straight to your phone.  

There’s also no need to book an appointment to visit us in store – we’re open seven days a week, early ‘til late. And if you need to, you can choose someone you trust to manage your accounts on your behalf.

Armed Forces Help To Buy scheme

Nothing should stop you buying your first home. We allow up to four applicants – so if you’re called away during the process, the others can continue on your behalf. You can also apply to let your property out if you need to leave it for periods of time.

We bring banking to you

We currently run educational classes for kids, and would love to hear how else we can support your banking needs from within your community. There’s no need to leave camp – just contact us on 0345 08 08 500 and we’ll arrange a visit.

Looking to start a career in banking?

We’re always looking to hire people who have left, or are about to leave the Armed Forces. As a community bank, we know you can bring a range of vital skills to our customers and colleagues.

For us, it's more than just experience. When we recruit for new roles, we ‘hire for attitude, train for skill’, and we know that military personnel have a great approach to learning and adapting.

Our people-people team will be there for you from the very first step in your application process, providing you with personalised advice right through to the very end.

Any veteran or military partner who is interested in working at Metro Bank will receive a one-to-one phone call to discuss their CV, as well as interview guidance to ensure they feel prepared.

Changing careers can be daunting, but in the first few months of your new job you'll receive support from our former-military and reservist network. We're also partnered with PTSD Resolution, Vitality and Hugh James LLP to make sure we can support our colleagues effectively.
