Kids aged from 7-12 will be taking over across Colchester sampling new careers including a stint at Metro Bank’s High Street store – a perfect way to spend a summer holiday weekend.
“We are really looking forward to meeting our new recruits” said Colchester Metro Bank assistant store manager, Lauren Crow. “The kids will experience every aspect of banking including a behind the scenes tour of our bank vault and safe deposit boxes, as well as having a go on our coin counting Magic Money Machine. Who knows maybe they’ll be inspired to become the next governor of the Bank of England!”
