We launched in 2010 as Britain’s first new high street bank in over a hundred years, and we knew it was time to do things differently. We’re committed to being the UK’s best community bank, and are always looking for innovative ways to support our customers and local businesses – that’s why we want to work with ground-breaking startups who can help. Through our Magic Makers programme, successful startups will have access to first-class mentorship and insights from leading experts in the finance sector, and we’ll get to hear their big ideas on what we can do better.

Applications are now open – good luck!
