Main responsibilitiesThis is an opportunity to influence our marketing and digital activity so that it is compliant with financial promotions regulation. You’ll need to provide a detailed understanding of regulation and how it relates to the promotions that we create. Be prepared to use your powers of persuasion to challenge, justify, negotiate and propose solutions. You will also be required to lead the Financial Promotions Consultant to manage the flow of approvals.

Customers are at the heart of everything we do at Skipton, and you’ll need to help us to deliver the best outcomes for them and the interests of the business when you’re approving promotions. You’ll be proactive in identifying opportunities to improve how we communicate, and use your knowledge and expertise to highlight risks that might conflict with regulation.


This is a busy role with time pressures and deadlines, so balancing conflicting priorities will be part of your day-to-day. The business will be relying on you to manage numerous approvals so that we can deliver our corporate plan.
Ideal candidateBuilding relationships and getting to know the business inside out will be the key to your success. You’ll need all the attributes required to become a trusted adviser and an ability to make complex regulation easy to understand, whether you’re presenting it across a table or giving written feedback.


You will have detailed knowledge of financial services and ideally financial advice, pensions and investing and be in a similar role approving financial promotions.  Relevant industry qualifications are desirable to demonstrate a sound knowledge and understanding of the sector.

Not only will you be great at listening, you’ll be good at interpreting queries and delivering the right response. You’ll need to be calm under pressure, resilient and ready to roll up your sleeves, to fit in with this supportive, sociable team.
About the companyWhen you become a Skipton colleague you’ll be supported with a structured development plan and opportunities to progress your career. The sky’s the limit for proactive individuals prepared to set their own agenda. A pension plan, life cover, generous holiday allowance, childcare vouchers and product discounts are available too – all within a high performing organisation that encourages colleagues to be curious and challenge the mainstream.

We’re committed to creating a diverse and inclusive workplace where every colleague has an opportunity to fulfil their career potential. This includes consideration for anyone seeking a more flexible work-life balance. If you have a need for flexibility then please discuss this with your hiring manager.
