If you go to the UK to work, you’re going to need a bank account. However, this is not as easy as it seems! UK Banks will require information and certain documents from you, such as utility bills, rental agreements and payslips, before they will open a bank account for you. This can be a ‘Catch 22’ situation, as prospective landlords will want to see bank statements from you. This process of obtaining a bank account can take up much of your initial time in the UK, when you just want to get settled in!
This is where i4 can help you!
i4 has relationships with some of the major High Street Banks in the UK and can organise to have your account open within 24 hours, taking the hassle out of this whole experience!
As part of the i4 The UK Starter Package, we will arrange for your bank account to be opened before you depart from Australia and with time allowing you can even have your debit card in your hands before you leave!
This means that that you will be able to transfer funds into your UK account so they are ready and waiting for you when you arrive in the UK, saving you time and money.
