“The budget supports employment; but does it support growth?” Craig donaldson, chief executive, metro bank comments on the 2013 chancellor’s budget

The Chancellor promised a Budget 'for people who aspire to work hard and get on’, and this was certainly a budget that was aimed at boosting employment. In particular we welcome announced cuts to the employer National Insurance contributions. As a fast growing company, Metro Bank understands that growth is a major priority of most businesses. In just three years we’ll have created over 1,000 new jobs, and recognise that the cost of hiring people can be a major barrier to growth for many companies. Anything that can alleviate this must be welcomed with open arms.
