Specialist personal savings and commercial lending bank DF Capital's ambition is to be the fastest-growing profitable bank in the UK. Retaining customers and attracting new ones to its lending and savings products, is how it plans to achieve this, as well as by keeping and attracting the best staff who believe in its values.

The Manchester-based bank says it wants to delight its customers by helping them to achieve their goals. "We don’t say ‘no’, we say, ‘let’s try to find a way’," is its motto. It also believes in acting sustainably and is a future-proof business.

The bank, which was established in 2016 and was authorised in 2020, wants to break the mould of banking stereotypes. It says it is committed to being straightforward, expert and flexible in how it goes about business.

A compelling suite of staff benefits is on offer at DF Capital, including 30 days' holiday, private medical insurance, 10% employer pension contribution, life assurance, group income protection, gym membership and travel loans.

DF Capital's key focus for bolstering its talent attraction and retention strategy has been to focus on its sustainability agenda and place importance on how “we do good business, by doing good”. The bank believes this is a key driver to its low levels of attrition and successful direct recruitment efforts.

Last year, it launched its first "green" benefit, Electric Dreams, through which it provides affordable, clean, green driving to staff. It allows employees up to 40% on the cost of a new electric car.

Quote from the top...
We have an amazing opportunity ahead, however success is defined by how engaged, passionate and excited employees are about our journey. I want our employees to enjoy what they do; enjoy finding solutions for our customers and enjoy being part of this team. Being treated well; feeling valued and respected makes for maximum employee engagement. Engaged employees have a sense of purpose, and when you have purpose about what you do, you get stuff done, delivering brilliant outcomes for customers.
