Opening UK Bank Account
Bank Account Assistance
Opening a UK bank account is a notoriously difficult thing to do,
whether you’re attempting to do so from your home country or once you’ve
arrived in the UK. The good news is, we’ve found a way to make it considerably
easier for our clients.
We have great, established relationships with top UK banks and
all the knowledge and experience to help make the process of opening a bank account
in the UK a fairly simple task!
1st Contact has been assisting people wanting to open a UK bank account
for more than a decade now. Not only are our consultants highly trained and professional,
most of them have been through the experience of living and working in the UK themselves.
They truly understand the frustrations involved and work very hard to make things
as easy as possible.
You can open a UK bank account
with a choice of three popular high street banks, including Barclays and Lloyds. Your
1st Contact Kickstart consultant will do the necessary back-end work and then arrange
for your bank meeting when you arrive in the UK.
Quick and easy best of all no need for proof of address in the UK
Most of our clients will open a UK Bank Account after they arrive by attending a
short meeting with one of our local branches in London. This bank account,
opened on arrival is included in the cost of the Kickstart Package and not able
to be sold separately due to our introduction
agreement with our banking partners in the UK.
The 1st Contact Kickstart Package was designed specifically to include everything
a first-time traveller to London would need – at a cost effective price. It's
about far more than just opening a UK bank account.
Kickstart also includes a
UK mobile phone SIM card, various discounts,
job and CV assistance,
free trial gym membership,
free money transfer and more.
Kickstart contains everything you need to kickstart your UK stay and ensure
you are prepared for anything.
