More about us

Aldermore is a fast growing and successful challenger bank supporting the UK’s SME entrepreneurs. To support our ambitious growth plans, a substantial investment is being made in the IT Service Delivery function. Our IT teams work across the business and with our external partners to build, manage and support a secure and reliable IT service to meet these exciting plans. As part of this investment, we are adopting a Service Integration and Management (“SIAM”) approach to managing both business and information technology services. The intention is to seamlessly integrate services to provide a single business-facing IT organisation that meets business requirements. This is a move away from managing technologies and infrastructure, to one of managing suppliers and services. By making this change the organisation will become more agile and flexible, able to scale services up and down as required to support business growth and expansion.

We are looking for talented and experienced individuals who want to join challenging yet rewarding environment. The organisation is big enough to provide career development opportunities, yet small and dynamic enough for everyone to make a difference, develop their skills and make a unique contribution to our future success.
