Your Career in Business Banking

From start-ups to many of the world’s best-loved and most successful organisations, we help businesses succeed and grow. Today, our dedicated Business Banking team provides lending, risk management, cash and liquidity management, trade finance, and asset and sales financing to clients across dozens of sectors.


About Business Banking

Business Banking serves one million clients in the UK – that’s 23% of the SME market – but this means it’s even more important to find ways to improve these services and build meaningful relationships.

We are committed to continually improving and forging long-lasting relationships to help and empower businesses to survive and thrive through changing times and – ultimately – help businesses achieve their ambitions. And we do all this in the human and committed way that clients will come to expect from the UK’s leading business bank.

In the past couple of years, we’ve witnessed incredible growth. But we’re not resting on our laurels. Far from it. We’re fully focused on bringing together new technology and the most engaged relationship teams to be the leading business bank and with our collaborative team ethos to create the perfect, personalised service for our clients. Join us and you’ll help to make our bold ambitions a reality.

We've partnered with several FinTechs, such as our industry-leading collaboration with PayPal, and collaboration with MarketInvoice, to offer a broader range of products and services to our customers.
