Meet the Team – Hannah

In the latest post in our 'Meet the Team' series we spoke with Hannah, our Marketing and Business Development Manager.

Tell us a bit about yourself and what brought you to Kingdom Bank.

My name is Hannah, and I’ve been working at the Bank since 2020 and am married with a toddler and another baby on the way! I’d held a variety of roles within different industries before joining the Bank, but for a while had been on the lookout for a marketing position in an organisation whose aims interested me. When my church pastor sent me through the job description for this role, it seemed like the perfect way to combine my experience in marketing with my faith, so I jumped at the chance! 

What is your role at Kingdom Bank and what does a typical day looks like for you?

I’m the Marketing & Business Development Manager, which means I lead a small team that is working to get the word out to Christians and churches across the UK that we exist to support them. I get to be involved in lots of different aspects of marketing and BD, from designing new marketing campaigns, to representing the Bank at Christian conferences across the country, to being part of the Bank’s Wider Leadership Team. I love it! 

How did you become a Christian and how do you find this impacts your work?

I grew up going to church and would say I first understood the gospel when it was explained to me at Spring Harvest when I was 14. That’s when I first got excited about living for Jesus, but I didn’t really understand how to follow him in all areas of my life until my first year of university when I was surrounded by Christians who were passionate about their faith and growing in this themselves. It was a time when God really stretched and challenged me and was foundational for my faith.  

I love now being able to serve the growth of God’s kingdom across the UK through my work. It’s great to be passionate about what you’re working towards and to hear stories of how partnering with the Bank is helping ministries and those employed by them to thrive! 

What excites you most about your role, and what do you enjoy most?

A lot of what we do in Marketing & BD is to help Christians to catch the vision of the Bank – to enable churches and ministries to grow by Christians and organisations placing savings with us so that we can lend these funds to gospel projects. It’s really encouraging when people get excited by this, whether they’re hearing about us for the first time or have decided to open an account having learnt about us over an extended period.  

And, of course, it’s brilliant to chat to the churches, ministry workers and Christian charities whose gospel work is thriving having received a Kingdom Bank mortgage. That’s what it’s all about! 

Where would we be likely to find you when you’re not at work?

That very much depends on whether I’ve got my toddler with me! If I do, we love going to a playgroup or continuing our tour of local parks. If I’ve got a bit of time to myself, you might find me out for a run or a swim, or sat in a café with a coffee and cake – balance!
