Metro Bank receives 40,000 applications for 475 jobs
20 June 2012
The high street bank received over 40,000 job applications for the 475 roles it has created since its launch in July 2010.
Metro Bank expects this number to increase, as it aims to recruit up to 250 roles this year, with plans to grow to 200 stores by 2020.
The bank said that it is committed to creating a workforce that represents the communities it serves, and giving opportunities to staff looking to build a banking career. 51% of Metro Bank’s employees are female, and 45% are under 25.
Craig Donaldson, CEO of Metro Bank, says: "Metro Bank is recruiting to grow as other banks are cutting costs and shutting down branches. In our customer facing roles, we recruit for attitude and style just as much as we do for banking experience – so we’re looking for staff who love interacting with people, providing fantastic service and never saying ‘I can’t do that’.
"We develop our own talent by providing a well-established training and development program which will lead to excellent career opportunities. Metro Bank promotes equality by giving opportunities to people from all walks of life".
Borer's FUSION Time Recording System
With a high number of employees on payroll, using Borer's FUSION Time Recording System will help reduce management involvement and the administrative effort required to manage a time management scheme.
It is labour demanding to manage and maintain a centrally administered or paper based flexitime system. Invariably, queries arise in relation to flex balances and the process can become a very complicated one, particularly for the HR department.
Implementing an automated time and attendance system makes things very easy for both employees and their managers alike.
