Background

Starling Bank, the leading digital bank, is on a mission to disrupt the banking industry. We’ve built an app with smart money management tools to help our customers live a healthier financial life. We also offer ground breaking B2B banking and payments services.

Since our launch in 2014, we’ve opened more than 500,000 accounts, including over 30,000 SME accounts, and our customers trust us with over £250m of their money. We’ve won the Best British Bank award, and now employ more than 380 people in our City of London office, with plans to create up to 150 new jobs at our new office in Southampton.

We are a fully licensed UK bank but have the culture and spirit of a fast-moving, disruptive technology company.  We are obsessed with providing our customers with the best banking app and money management experience around.

Everyone at Starling gets the chance to own interesting things from day one, and we’re told one of the best things about working here is the ability to achieve a lot in a short space of time.

  • Assisting with the management and development of Starling Bank’s existing corporate governance framework;
  • Running internal committees, including liaising with committee members, preparing agendas and taking minutes;
  • Managing the company’s statutory books and UK Companies House filings.

What you will have:

  • Relevant professional qualification;
  • Experience in a related role within financial services;
  • Corporate law experience.

What you'll get in return:

  • competitive salary;
  • access to a range of benefits (see our website for more details).
