A further 20 jobs are to be created at Tesco Bank’s Newcastle office. This is in addition to the 20 roles created when Tesco Bank announced Newcastle as the home for a new leading-edge technology hub in November 2019.

The roles the bank is recruiting for include test, software and systems engineers, systems architects, solution designers, project managers, and IT and business analysts.

As well as competitive salaries, there are a wide range of benefits on offer to successful candidates, including the chance to work flexibly to suit lifestyles and the ability to take advantage of a range of discounts in Tesco stores. Development opportunities will also be available.

David Bowerman, chief operations officer, Tesco Bank, said: “It’s an exciting time at Tesco Bank as we invest to develop propositions which better meet the needs of Tesco shoppers. We know there are deep talent pools in Edinburgh and Newcastle, and we hope to tap into these further as we bolster the technology function that does so much to help deliver for more than five million customers every day.

“We are looking for people who want to work collaboratively as part of an agile team, with new cloud-based technology, in a business with exciting plans and potential.

“Successful applicants will join strong, established teams working on innovative projects and delivering positive change as part of a globally recognised brand.”

Derek Mackay, cabinet secretary for the economy, said: “With world-leading universities and new digital academies offering a great variety of choice for careers in the industry, as well as an increase in the number of agile start-ups, it’s no wonder that Edinburgh is becoming one of the UK’s thriving tech hubs.

“This latest investment by Tesco Bank will further add to Edinburgh – and Scotland’s appeal as a destination for highly-trained tech jobs, and help to create a more dynamic and innovative side to our financial sector.”
