Career Choice

20th April 2023

Colleagues from the Eastbourne Metro Bank will be chatting to teenagers and their families about a potential career in banking at Eastbourne’s Big Futures Show on April 25th

“Young people often believe there is a need for a raft of qualifications and lots of barriers to enter banking, but at Metro Bank this is not the case as we hire for attitude and train for skill,” explains Grace Pressland, Recruitment Manager, Metro Bank. “We want people who love to work in teams and we look for zest, enthusiasm and empathy more than GCSEs, A Levels, degrees or even past banking, or financial services experience.”

 “We are looking forward to being able to showcase a career at Metro Bank and talk about why we love working here,” explains Eastbourne Metro Bank Local Director Tom Meggison.  “There are lots of different opportunities with the Bank where you can build a career in marketing, IT, finance, operations and customer service as just a few examples. Any young person interested in learning more, should come and visit our stand at the show.”

The Big Futures Show is held at Eastbourne Sports Park from 9.30am-4pm.
