Join one of the UK’s most successful challenger banks

Since its launch in 2015, OakNorth Bank has helped countless entrepreneurs and businesses across the UK achieve their growth ambitions.

Our loans have directly contributed to the creation of tens of thousands of new homes and jobs across the UK, as well as adding several billion pounds to the economy. What’s more is that we’ve managed to build a profitable business – reaching cash flow break even in just 11 months from launch and having sustained profits since only our second full year of operations (2017).

Who we’re looking for

We’re always interested in speaking to curious, open-minded, ambitious and intellectually-motivated people who are excited about the opportunity to make a real difference to small and medium-sized business lending in the UK.

We expect every team member to constantly be learning, zero-basing (constantly asking if we were to build it from scratch today, how would we do it?), taking ownership, and executing with entrepreneurial acumen.

A great place to work

We have built a place where people love to work.

As a founder-led organisation, giving our team the opportunity to become owners in the business is incredibly important to us. Half of our employees have taken the opportunity to become shareholders, investing their own money in the business, and in doing so, helping to build for the long term. This long-term thinking is vital to our mission – Rishi and Joel have given themselves 20 years to build this business. It’s having this right ambition, where decisions are made for the long term that has been key to OakNorth’s success so far.

    We offer a range of benefits and organise several events throughout the year to encourage team members to get to know one another outside of office hours.
