About the business

Our Change teams focus on keeping us competitive and commercially successful as a bank, bringing together customer experiences, data and the latest technology to drive and influence change.

Ultimately, they pave the way for both the bank and our businesses to be more agile - keeping us ahead of the curve when meeting our customers’ needs.
