About the Company
“If there’s one thing the last 12 months has taught us, it’s that we need people.
Somehow, there is an assumption that everyone is up to speed with technology. But many of us are actually still trying to figure it out, and sometimes feel left behind.
It’s okay to ask questions about how to do things. And ask in person. Not over the phone with a voice from the other side of the world. Or a chatbot.
We believe it’s better to get help in person, with a person, so we can understand what someone really needs.
So we want to do something really radical to banking…
Bring people back. Not just any people: people who are welcoming, interested in you, reassuring and helpful. All the traits that make the day go better for everyone.
We’re going to partner with all the banks that don’t have locations everywhere they would like to. So that local people get access to their bank account with OneBanks regardless of who they bank with.
OneBanks is a free, accessible service aiming to support small businesses and individual customers of all ages to show that technology can make lives simpler.”

It’s a role that starts with the needs of the individual customer: if technology can improve and simplify their banking, then you will help facilitate that. If tech isn’t the answer then the customer will be supported in the most appropriate way.

The ideal person for this role will be people-focussed, friendly and down-to-earth, to support OneBanks’ aim to create a sense of community within Kilwinning, Ayrshire. To achieve this, you will ideally be located within Kilwinning or the surrounding area and be familiar with the local community.
You may apply for this role whatever your age, academic background or working experience.
The following traits are relevant to the role:
- People-focussed, friendly and down-to-earth
