Who we are

AIB is a dynamic and diverse place to work. We are changing from the inside out to become a bank people can believe in. And by people, we mean our employees as well as our customers.

We’re one of Ireland’s biggest banks, but that doesn’t mean you’re just a number when you work here. We’re organised enough to have small teams focussed on one big initiative. Whether we’re analysing data, developing an app or, lending money, we are all focussed on our customers. 

In each team you’ll find leaders who focus as much on people as they do on function. Here, anyone who is responsible for managing people is called a people leader, not a manager. That shows our commitment and focus on the development and engagement of the people who work here.

You’ll find a mix of age, race and gender, where everyone has an opportunity to reach their potential. You’ll find a culture of openness, positivity and respect where everyone has a voice.

We are looking for the best experienced people as well as graduates. We will match your energy and enthusiasm with empowerment so that together we can build a culture that break the conventions of what our customer and employees expect of a bank.
