Revolut is offering its new Dublin staff a less tasty package than their London counterparts with no free dinners, no pensions and no health insurance, according to online job descriptions.

The pan-European bank confirmed last week that it was planning to shift responsibility for its European payments from London to Dublin as a result of Brexit.

It has advertised to fill at least 14 senior roles in the Irish office, including director of finance, head of wealth and trading, head of growth and head of public affairs.

As with jobs in its London office, Revolut is advertising competitive packages, biannual bonuses, a free metal Revolut card, "all the latest tech you need", and flexibility to work at home one day a week.

But Revolut staff in London get extra perks seemingly not offered to Dublin colleagues: "Don't panic about cooking; get free dinners with Deliveroo," say the bank's current UK job postings. Free breakfast is also off the menu in Dublin and, more importantly, so are pensions and private health insurance, according to postings. Revolut did not respond to a request for comment.

Revolut, which has said that it has 500,000 customers in Ireland, employs 12 people in its Dublin office but is expected to expand its Irish team to between 40 and 50 people this year.
