Our commitment to the Armed Forces Covenant
As a business, we are working more closely with the Armed Forces in a number of ways. In recruitment we are committed to being inclusive and supportive to those individuals who are leaving the army and looking for their next steps in their career.
For our customers we are making it easier for Armed Forces customers to get on the property ladder. The Armed Forces Help to Buy is an interest-free loan provided by the Ministry of Defence, allowing eligible Armed Forces personnel to borrow up to half of their gross annual salary (to a maximum of £25,000), interest free for 10 years. We are now supporting the use of the loan as a deposit to buy a house, available directly through our stores or via a broker.
Metro Bank launched in July 2010 as the first new high street bank in more than 100 years. The revolutionary UK bank offers personal, commercial, business and private banking services, with a focus on providing unparalleled levels of customer service and convenience.
With our unique, customer-focused model, we are reinventing the rules of banking, making every effort to remove all 'stupid bank rules' from our day to day services, to offer simpler and more convenient banking.
Metro Bank was founded on a simple precept: Offer the best customer experience, how, when and where the customer wants it. Stores are open 7 days a week, 362 days a year, and customers benefit from a London-based 24 hour contact centre and full internet banking services.
