About Secure Trust Bank plc


What is it like to work for Secure Trust Bank plc

Leadership
Leadership
The CEO has introduced a quarterly communication session which he chairs and uses this time to deliver business results face to face, encouraging employees to question him directly during those meetings. In addition, any suggestions can be submitted to 'Bright Ideas' which the CEO monitors and responds to directly. Each quarter one of the nominees is awarded £250 for the most innovative suggestion.
Personal Growth
Personal Growth

The organisation is on a mission to build the best bank in Britain and floating the bank on the stock market in November 2011 as well as acquiring other organisations is part of their plans to ensure they have the capital and resources needed to continue to support their growth. This growth will provide career development and opportunities going forward and enable them to continue to invest in their overall staff proposition. Provided this talent is harnessed, they believe it can result in positive actions and their talent programme provides an enhanced and focused development path for those who demonstrate a passion and ability to progress. The programme gives the participants exposure to aspects of the business they otherwise would not have had access to and enables them to attend some beneficial learning events including Networking Lessons in Leadership and Personal Effectiveness.

Giving Something Back
Giving Something Back

Secure Trust Bank encourages all staff to take time off during their working days to volunteer their time for the nominated 2012 charity, QAC. This is reinforced by the CEO who 'tops up' the money raised in events from his own pocket. The events throughout the year are driven by the department managers who are often found at the front leading their team during the event, i.e. the IT team helped re-organise the library and the Lending and Project teams helped redecorate rooms by painting walls. All events although organised by a specific department involve everyone within the business to a greater or lesser extent, often creating a competition between departments.
