A savings management platform has announced 80 new jobs.
Newcastle Strategic Solutions says the posts are the first phase of a ‘tech talent’ investment drive that will see significant and continuing recruitment in 2020.
The North Tyneside-based online savings technology and services provider says the 80 roles will add to its existing 600-strong team, which is based at Cobalt Park and Newcastle city centre.
Bosses say the new roles will support complex projects, including launching new banks and developing new and innovative services for existing clients.
They will also include opportunities in customer service, client service, business transformation and financial crime operations.
Business growth, continued success and positive half-year business results has accelerated investment in the business, which is one of the North East’s most established and successful FinTechs.
