About the team

The branches team lead the roll-out of Revolut’s European branch network which aims to deliver local bank account details to the majority of Revolut’s 14M users by 2022. Not having local bank account details is one of the key factors currently preventing users from making Revolut their primary bank account (most users have GB IBANs). Many employers and merchants reject foreign IBANs thereby making it difficult for users to deposit their salary or pay via direct debit using their Revolut account. Local branches solve this problem.

The project is managed by a team of change delivery and operations managers who work hand-in-hand with product and engineering teams to integrate with local payment schemes, and oversee cross-department implementation. Additionally, they partner with territory CEOs and Regulatory Affairs to navigate FS regulation and regulator relationships.
