The Curve Group has entered into the third phase of its partnership with TSB Bank to further expand its business banking capability.
In 2018, The Curve Group successfully recruited TSB’s first two waves of relationship managers and area directors for its business banking team. The third phase of this project outsource contract will see The Curve Group once again providing consultancy, research support and talent mapping in order to attract and select a further 21 additional relationship managers and one senior leader to bolster this nationwide team.
The expansion of the relationship manager team forms part of TSB’s commitment to small business banking, with a multi-million-pound investment programme already underway to build new banking services for small businesses.
As part of this commitment, TSB has already hired 30 relationship managers and two senior leaders in Scotland, North of England and the Midlands. Relationship managers will require the necessary skills to work closely with small business owners in the local area to determine what advice and support will best unlock their potential.
