You will be responsible for leading, supporting and developing the Protection of Property and banking division of the Client Affairs Team, in close collaboration with the Team Manager and wider leadership and management team.
This is a fast paced and developing service with high standards and aspirations to deliver a gold standard service to our customers. You will be expected to provide
inspirational leadership and management of your team and ensure the service delivers safe and effective high-quality financial care and support.

You will either be an existing Team Leader/Manager or looking to develop the next stage of your career having gained some experience of supervising staff. You will be joining a small and supportive team who are passionate about the service they deliver.
