Banking Researcher

Based in Haddenham


We’re looking for someone with significant previous experience within UK retail banking (probably as a Personal Banker) to join our team of Researchers maintaining a database of over 3.69 million product features. This is a fixed term contract to cover maternity leave.

The data collected and managed by our Banking research team is used by some of the largest names in the industry to provide:

  • instant and unbiased market and competitor intelligence for providers of banking products;
  • product ratings for them to use in their marketing messages; and
  • product feature data for comparison websites.

We currently have an opportunity available to join this team of specialist Researchers – covering current accounts, savings accounts, business accounts, credit cards, and all types of mortgages and loans. This is a fixed term contract to cover maternity leave - likely to be for at least 8 months. We'll also consider you for any permanent roles that arise during or after your contract.

The role primarily involves:

  • researching banking product information using the Internet, industry press, and documentation from product providers;
  • updating our database with any new information; and
  • building effective relationships with product providers to facilitate the acquisition of accurate and up-to-date information.

We’re looking for someone with significant previous experience within UK retail banking (probably as a Personal Banker), detailed knowledge of the full range of banking products and up to date understanding of the current banking market.

To be successful in the role, you’ll need to combine strong organisational and communication skills with the ability to interpret information and to think analytically. You’ll also need to be a proactive team player with an inquisitive, methodical approach to your work. A keen eye for detail and accurate data entry skills are both critical, together with strong Excel skills.

This role could be performed full time, but we're also happy to talk flexible working. We ideally want someone to work five days per week, but could accommodate reduced hours on those days (between 5 and 7.5 hours per day). We've also always supported people to work from home for part of their week if they want to - not just during a lockdown!

In return, we can offer a unique and interesting role within the retail banking industry. The salary for this role is £20-23k, dependent upon the skills, knowledge and experience you can bring to the role. You’ll also benefit from all the great things about working for Defaqto.

Between £20,000 and £23,000 Per Annum
