UK lender Aldermore is to create 45 new
jobs in Reading as it moves into its specialist asset finance
centre in Apex Plaza, opening in the next few weeks.

The bank, which has been in operation for
about a year, has signed an agreement to rent an 8,000 square foot
office space and its entire leasing team will be relocated

George Ashworth, Head of Asset Finance at
Aldermore, said: “We will then recruit up to 45 additional staff,
with 20 new recruits being required immediately.

“We are seeking a broad range of skills from
individuals with existing asset finance expertise, to
administration and support staff.” 

Aldermore’s asset finance operation provides
leasing facilities for items including plant and machinery and
office technology.
