Skipton International completed its office move last week, taking over the 3rd floor of Tudor House to accommodate its expanding team.
The Skipton team has grown by a fifth in two years, with 50 Guernsey team members now working for the bank.
The mortgage and offshore savings specialist will still greet its customers through its reception on the ground floor where its customer services and banking teams will be based, with the rest of its operations residing on the 3rd floor.
Jim Coupe, Managing Director, Skipton International, said: “This move is part of our larger business plan to expand our team to allow us to better service our growing customer numbers, both on the island and off. Within a couple of years our planned headcount is due to expand beyond that which could have been supported by our prior office configuration and this move increases our office space by 75%. We do not want our customers to be concerned should they walk past and notice the ground floor north suite sitting empty, we are still there to serve you from our existing reception.”
Skipton International is expanding upwards at Tudor House following another successful year for the business. Skipton recently reached £1.5bn of assets, whilst still predominantly Channel Island mortgage focused it is growing substantially through its Expat UK Buy to Let mortgage proposition, which comprises about half of current mortgage applications.
The bank has continued to grow across the Channel Islands over the last three years, moving into the ground floor of Tudor House in 2016 and opening a new Mortgage Centre in Jersey last year.
Jim Coupe added: “Skipton will continue building our team and hence advertise new positions as they become available. We are always pleased to receive interest and CVs at any time from individuals who share our values and have a passion for providing quality customer service.”
