Job Description

General Information

At Charity Bank we use Applied for our recruitment. Applied aims to overcome unconscious bias in recruiting. Instead of using your CV alone, we'll be asking you to answer questions to test skills needed for the role. The responses are then anonymised, and reviewed in a random order by members of our team.  The Applied platform also asks some demographic questions before you start your application.  We at Charity Bank never see the responses to these demographic questions with your application. We only see summary statistics to help us check if our candidate pool is balanced and if everyone has an equal chance to get hired irrespective of their background. If you prefer, you can easily opt out of answering these questions.

Please email a member of the HR team ( if you require Charity Bank to make any reasonable adjustments to support you during our recruitment process. 

Note: We request that you do not use generative AI as part of your application.
