Atom Bank looks to attract tech talent

A recruitment drive is underway to find key technical people for the UK’s first bank built exclusively for mobile.

Atom Bank, which launched in April this year, plans to revolutionise the face of banking in the UK with its unique user experience.

The new bank is now aiming to attract the best of the UK’s tech talent for its digital and technology Division with the help of North East recruitment specialists, GEM Partnership.

Anne-Marie Lister, head of organisational development at Atom Bank said: “Our customers deserve the best. Ensuring we attract the best people will not only help us to change the face of banking, it will ensure an outstanding customer experience. The bar is set high, but we are confident that GEM Partnership will help us to achieve our goal.”

Newcastle based GEM Partnership, recently recognised by the London Stock Exchange in their ‘Companies to Inspire Britain’ 2016 report, were appointed following a competitive tender process, largely due to their knowledge of the specific digital and technology talent pool.

Lee Rankin, managing director, said: “We’re very much looking forward to supporting Atom Bank’s technology and digital recruitment drive. As an incredibly ambitious business and fantastic employer, we are very excited to be part of their plans.

“With Atom Bank, the task at hand is to engage proactively with the best people in the UK marketplace who have a desire to be part of a sector revolution, developing digital technology never used in the financial sector before; this is a challenging and thoroughly exciting brief.”

With roles available in a variety of technical and digital disciplines including Architecture, Development, Technology Management, Atom Bank are hoping to attract the cream of the crop.

Recruitment is being carried out in phases as the technology and services develop towards launch and beyond, with start dates staggered over the coming twelve months.
