Full Time

It's time that you come and join the bank that is delightfully surprising everyone
You've probably heard the rumours about what it's like to work here at Virgin Money. Like the one that you can spend your lunch breaks playing pool and video games (that one's true) or the one that Richard Branson is the Head Chef in our onsite restaurant (false). Please, allow us to set the record straight by answering some of our most frequently asked questions...

What roles are you currently recruiting for? We're looking for Banking Associates to join us at our Gosforth office.

Salary? Starting from GBP18,000.

I don't have any banking experience. Can I still apply? You sure can! Many of our colleagues hadn't worked in a bank before. All we ask is of you is that you can deliver heartfelt service to our customers.

What's the dress code? We have a dress for your day policy. Fancy wearing your jeans and trainers? Go for it. Feeling a bit fancier and want to wear your favourite shirt and tie combo? Be our guest. The choice is yours.

Which days will I be expected to work? This depends on which team you will join. Some roles are Monday to Friday, some are Monday to Sunday. A full time working week is 37.5 hours, usually worked over 5 x 7.5 hour shifts. If you're looking for part time hours or there are any shift patterns you'd really prefer, please just let us know!

What's the office like? Pretty cool, we think. We've got a gym, coffee shop, restaurant, shop, bank branch, and chill out zone. We also always have exciting retailers onsite selling everything from brownies, books and jewellery to aftershave and perfume.

Any benefits on offer? You bet! We offer a double match pension scheme, free parking, life assurance, private medical cover, 27 days annual leave and a flexible benefits package which enables you to purchase up to an additional 3 days annual leave per year, plus you'll get a shiny Virgin Tribe discount card which will entitle you to exclusive discounts across the Virgin group. All of our employees also get two paid volunteering days per year.

Are there any career development opportunities? Absolutely. Your career path here at Virgin Money will be as unique as you are, so we'll give you everything you need to get you to where you want to be. We advertise all of our job roles internally, so you'll be able to apply for anything that is a bit of what you fancy.

Will I get to meet Richard? Sadly, this is unlikely. As lovely as our office is, Mr. B doesn't spend too much time here. If we owned a private island in the Caribbean we know where we would rather be! You just never know though...

Sounds great, where do I sign up? Hit the apply button - we can't wait to hear from you!

Our aim is to nurture a skilled, diverse and committed workforce where every individual regardless of background can share our purpose, reach their potential and be rewarded appropriately for their contribution to our success. We're also happy to talk flexible working with you.
