This announcement is part of Embark’s ambitious growth plans, following its acquisition by Lloyds Banking Group. As part of this, Embark will be focused on delivering an extensive technology roadmap for its investment platform, as well as supporting Lloyds Banking Group with its direct to consumer investment and robo-advice offerings. As a result, Embark is firmly establishing itself as a destination employer for people seeking a career with a blue chip organisation focused on financial services and technology.
Embark has a strong commitment to Dundee, having hired over 50 people in 2021, complementing the 110 existing colleagues located in the city since 2020.

Embark has also provided sponsorship funding for Embark Dundee, Scotland’s largest e-bike scheme, as part of its commitment to supporting the local community. Embark Dundee had 15,987 users who saved an estimated 95,400m3 of carbon last year alone. The scheme is set to expand further this year.
Mark Hallan, Scottish Enterprise Director of Global Investment, said: “As part of our values-driven approach to attracting inward investment to Scotland, working with innovative and progressive companies such as Embark in key sectors such as fintech is a priority for Scottish Enterprise.
“We look forward to continuing to support Embark as it continues to grow its presence in Dundee to become a centre of innovation for fintech and further highlights Scotland’s strengths in the sector.”
