Metro Bank, the UK’s leading challenger bank, is set to open its doors to the Colchester community on Friday 16 December, with the launch of its 47th store. The revolutionary high street bank is not only bringing local residents and businesses a true banking alternative, but has created 25 new jobs for local people.

To mark the occasion, the award-winning bank is inviting Colchester residents to join colleagues for its grand opening celebrations. The two-day long party will include live music, stilt walkers, giveaways, and entertainment for the whole family.

Metro Bank prides itself on offering the very best in service and convenience and looks to recruit colleagues who have a passion for building customer relationships. Since its launch in 2010, the bank has created over 2,400 jobs and has plans to recruit even more colleagues before the end of the year.

Kevin Walker, Regional Director, Metro Bank commented: “Putting customers’ needs first is at the heart of Metro Bank’s ethos. Our role is to make banking simple and convenient and we’re excited to bring local residents a bank that truly believes the customer is king.

“Crucial to our model are our colleagues. We recruit local people that are passionate about customer service and providing the best banking experience on the high street. We look forward to becoming an integral part of the community and making a real difference to the way Colchester banks.”

Unlike any other bank in the UK, Metro Bank is open seven days a week, early until late and provides instant account opening along with on-the-spot card printing for lost or stolen credit and debit cards. All stores offer safe deposit boxes for customers’ valuables and free coin counting for customers and non-customers alike.

The new Colchester team will be led by Ryan Smith, Store Manager, and Chris Morgan, Local Director, and the store can be found at 31 – 32 High Street, Colchester, CO1 1DB.

All Metro Bank stores are open at the most convenient time for local residents and businesses; 8am – 8pm Monday – Friday, 8am – 6pm Saturday and 11am – 5pm Sundays and bank holidays, 362 days a year.
