Willingness to embrace the ambiguity that is inherent in a start up environment where we are building a new bank from scratch. Appetite for change so that you can help us make the most out of the opportunities that ambiguity brings: to explore different options and ideas and find out what works best for us. Ability to communicate clearly and concisely so that everyone understands what you're telling them. Excellent written skills. What you write is clear, precise and structured - and therefore quick and easy to read and understand. See How We Write for more about why we believe good writing is important and our style of writing.
