Banking Recruitment Agencies

The banking industry has evolved from the traditional responsibilities of just moving money via payment mechanisms. It now offers retail, private, as well as boutique services. The ideal portfolio for bankers includes investment banking, customer care, and financial advisory services.

Recruitment agencies specialising in the banking sector work with many financial institutions employing a significant number of employees.

Skills and Qualifications

Most hiring organisations require applicants with at a 2:1 degree and above. A degree in economics, business studies, management, marketing, accounting, or mathematics will often put an applicant ahead of the competition.

There are also opportunities in the bank for customer service, sales and marketing, and public relations roles which do not require advanced degrees. These opportunities may also offer employees the chance to advance to senior banking roles. Some financial institutions offer in-house management programmes and fast-track courses to promising candidates.

Applicants who are focused in customer service and sales orientation and demonstrate excellent verbal and written communication skills are highly sought-after. Candidates are also required to have management skills, commercial awareness, and a sharp business acumen as well as be flexible enough to adapt to changes.


Banking recruitment agencies work with major banks such as Barclays, Co-operative, Lloyds, Halifax, and Nationwide to enlist qualified personnel for various roles within the banking sector.

The online banking sector is an emerging employer that is growing fast with the digital age and gaining popularity with users for its convenience.

The sector has also encroached into the retail sector with many leading supermarkets offering banking services. Some of these are Tesco, Sainsbury’s and M&S banks. Although they do not offer traditional current accounts they are also very popular and convenient for their users.

Telephone banking services such as First Direct are also useful and helpful for older customers and those who live far from urban settlements. They also recruit personable applicants who are excellent at customer service and telephone sales.

There are numerous opportunities for growth in this industry with regular training to update staff on products and markets. Candidates who are registered with a professional body such as The London Institute of Banking, Chartered Banker Institute and British Bankers Association are often at an advantage.


Banking recruitment agencies often carry out a market survey to find out the current market rates for professionals in this industry. Starting salaries are reported to start at £18,000 to £25,000 with possible £2,000 bonus for those in training. Trained and experienced entry-level roles offer attractive packages starting at £21,000 up to £40,000 for branch managers. Senior roles in the regional banking level offer between £40,000-£60,000 annually while central management banking roles can fetch upwards of £80,000.
