Tesco Bank invests in new technology hub in Newcastle
18 November 2019
Tesco Bank is to create more than twenty roles in the North East of England after choosing its Newcastle office as the home for a new leading-edge technology hub.
The bank will be recruiting test, software and systems engineers, work stream leads and analysts for its new hub at Quorum Business Park offices. As well as competitive salaries, there’s a wide range of benefits on offer to successful candidates, including the chance to work flexibly to suit your lifestyle and the ability to take advantage of a range of discounts in Tesco stores.
The new hub builds on Tesco Bank’s reputation as a key employer in the North East, where currently more than 700 employees work at the bank’s customer service centre. Tesco Bank will celebrate its 10th anniversary of being in the city next year and, over that time, the bank has made a strong impact in the local community.
In April, the bank announced it had raised over £18,000 for its charity partner The People’s Kitchen, enabling the charity to help even more people and families experiencing homelessness by offering free hot meals, clothing and goods on the streets of Newcastle.
Commenting on the new technology hub, Derek Tucker, Chief Information Officer, Tesco Bank says:
“This is an exciting time for Tesco Bank and our Newcastle office, building on our long relationship with the city and support for the economy in the North East. To better meet the changing needs of our customers and create value, we continue to grow and transform the bank and this investment will be a key part of this.
“There’s a rich knowledge base in the region and we know we can attract the right talent here that will help take our customer offerings to the next level. Working at Tesco Bank will give the opportunity to work on some leading edge and innovative projects, as well as being part of a leading global brand.”
