Bank of Ireland to create 100 technology roles to accelerate digital delivery
Bank of Ireland is to create 100 new technology roles to further accelerate a range of digital projects. The new roles, which include cloud platform engineers, cybersecurity experts, data Infrastructure engineers, specialised project managers and business analysts, will be part of the Group’s technology and customer Solutions team.
Last year, the Bank of Ireland mobile app was enhanced through the introduction of a new digital money management service which offers customers more than 40 insights into their spending. The bank processed 366 million contactless transactions, up 41% since 2021. Over 90% of everyday product applications are now digitised.
New hires will be involved in some of the Group’s most critical strategic initiatives. These include developing new customer features on digital channels, delivering against the Group’s Cloud Strategy, protecting customers against emerging cyber threats, and capabilities such as advanced data analytics.
The roles will be recruited in line with the Bank’s flexible working policy, meaning applicants will be able to work from a combination of home and central office locations, as well as a network of 13 remote working hubs.
All new recruits will have day-one entitlement to Bank of Ireland’s suite of market-leading Family Matters policies including maternity and paternity leave, parents leave, foster care leave, early pregnancy loss, surrogacy, fertility leave, all of which are paid leave entitlements.
In addition, the Bank has also recently announced the introduction of a performance-related Profit Share Scheme. This will see colleagues rewarded by April 2024 based on both the financial and operating performance of the company and individual performance during 2023.
“Bank of Ireland is one of the most attractive and dynamic places to build a career right now,” said Eimear Harty, HR director, group technology & customer solutions. “We have some exciting digital projects underway across the Group, and we’re looking for talented specialists who want to drive improvements in the banking experience for millions of customers.
“As well as interesting work, Bank of Ireland is a great place to grow your career. Colleagues benefit from some of the most progressive and inclusive workplace policies in the market, flexible working supported by a network of remote hubs, and competitive pay.
“Banking is changing fast, it’s exciting, and these new positions will be at the forefront of advances in the sector. These new roles will further support our progress and momentum as we build a world-class, diverse technology team, delivering improvements for customers.”
