The biggest problems people think about when they move abroad to a new country are: getting a paid job and getting suitable affordable accommodation.
What most people sometimes forget is that they also need a bank account to manage their wages and their personal financial affairs. Getting a normal high street bank account can be very difficult in the UK due to the banks ""old fashioned"" way of dealing with people - especially, the proof of address which new people will not have. In these days of multiple shared houses, it is difficult to obtain this proof of address. Since we started dealing with jobs in 2007 this "difficulty in getting a bank account" is a very common complaint we hear from the Polish, Romanian, Czech, Hungarian, Bulgarian, Slovak, Latvian and other EU jobseekers we find jobs for.

The below banks and E -money finanical institutions are more modern and relaxed in their approach to giving people bank accounts and you can open an account any of them without the "difficult" proof of address. Please take a look at them and choose one that suits you, and you could have a new bank account within a matter of minutes - online. You do not even need to leave your home to get the account!
