Hello, we’re Starling. We built a new kind of bank because we knew technology had the power to help people save, spend and manage their money in a new and transformative way. We’re a fully licensed UK bank with the culture and spirit of a fast-moving, disruptive tech company. We’re a bank, but better: fairer, easier to use and designed to demystify money for everyone.

Training for the role:

We have a 6 week training programme which is run from the office so you’ll need to be able to commit to being in the office full time, for your first 6 weeks with us. The training gives you all of the skills and support you need to succeed at Starling!

The recruitment process:

Once we have reviewed your application, if we feel you have the skills and experience foe the role, we will invite you to an initial 20 minutes long phone interview.

After this, the final stage would be a video interview with our Fraud Investigations team, where they will discuss the role, your skills and experience in more detail and an answer any questions you may have about the role and what to expect!
