Newcastle High Street, to be precise! Spend your lunch time browsing the city centre shops, head to the cinema after work or meet up with friends for a catch up. The bright lights of the city are calling you!

Banking Associate may not sound like the perfect fit when your CV is full of experience. But this is Virgin.  The role is what you make it.  Customers are everything to us and we take the service we deliver to them very seriously. 

We’re looking for smart, fearless and confident people to join our Store team in Northumberland Street. You’re an expert, an ambassador and someone who saves the day.

Are you ready to wear it?

The buzz of banking

No two days are the same. You could be helping a customer with a banking transaction, promoting one of our products, talking through a quote or answering a tricky question. It’s a well-regulated, dynamic and ever-changing environment. This means we take the time to train you to do a brilliant job from the start, with ongoing coaching and development as you progress. The team at Northumberland Street are great and will help you on every step of your banking adventure!
