Careers – about us


British Business Bank is an organisation with an open culture and a strong sense of purpose.

We offer people the opportunity to work in broad and interesting roles where they can make a real difference, transforming local communities and the economy by improving access to finance markets for smaller UK businesses. Our work is rich and varied – and we collaborate with a wide range of stakeholders including Government, think-tanks, industry bodies, academic institutions and financial services organisations.

We continually strive to create an inspiring culture and environment, based on our shared Values, that enables our colleagues to excel. Whatever team you are in, your work will be stimulating and challenging, with opportunities to learn new skills, grow your capabilities, and develop your career.

We recruit candidates from a diversity of backgrounds who can bring a wealth of knowledge, experience and ideas from the public and private sectors, and who share a passion for our mission and purpose. Our colleagues say they are proud to work for the organisation, and this is reflected in how they go about their work – from award-winning performance and creation of innovative solutions to a willingness to embrace cross-team working and knowledge-sharing.

Since we were established in 2014, we have grown rapidly as an organisation and now have more than 250 employees across our Sheffield and London offices.

We are organised into 10 teams across the bank, who are responsible for our outward-facing product lines and our internal functions:
