The Curve Group, one of the UK’s fastest growing Recruitment and HR outsourcing companies, announces today that it has entered into an exciting partnership with TSB Bank for the attraction and selection of their new Commercial Banking team.
Britain’s challenger bank, TSB, was built to bring more competition to UK banking and ultimately make banking better for all UK consumers. TSB occupies a unique market position as a UK-only values-led challenger brand with over 200 years of heritage. TSB has over five million customers and is Britain’s most recommended high street bank. With an established Retail business, TSB is now focusing its attention on growing its Commercial Banking capability to support small businesses and entrepreneurs right across the UK.
Under the project outsource contract, The Curve Group will initially be providing consulting and research support around role design and talent mapping, moving into attracting and selecting 15 new Relationship Managers to grow and serve this new customer base.
TSB is committed to building a diverse bank, with a culture that is inclusive of gender, race, disability, background, or education – and a workforce that reflects the diversity of the customers it serves. This requirement is front and centre in all new appointments, and TSB is looking to appoint its 15 new Relationship Managers in the first half of 2018 and with a strong gender split.
Providing an end-to-end solution, The Curve Group will also be designing the assessment centres and selection materials and running all elements of the process on TSB’s behalf.
Commenting on the appointment of The Curve Group, Richard Davies, Commercial Banking Director of TSB says “We have huge ambitions in the small business banking market and we’re on the cusp of making some real waves. The recruitment of TSB’s new Relationship Managers is a chance for people to get involved in something right from the offset – to help shape how small businesses are looked after right across the country.
“Small businesses need banking partners who want actively to support them, with fresh thinking and new services – to help reinvigorate local communities and unlock the true potential of small businesses in the UK.
“It’s great to be growing our commercial banking team at TSB, and I’m pleased we’re partnering with The Curve Group to deliver on our ambition of building a diverse and inclusive business bank that truly reflects the communities we serve.”
Jeanette Ramsden, CEO of The Curve Group commented “As specialists in Financial Services, we are delighted to work on the build of TSB’s new Commercial Banking team. TSB is bringing fresh thinking to the SME market and creating fabulous opportunities for Relationship Managers and Business Banking specialists to build the bank that makes them feel proud and connects them to customers on a personal level. The Bank’s desire to build in diversity and flexibility from day one is to be admired and will truly set them apart in this segment.”
