This diverse, fast-paced rotational programme covers four demanding and absorbing placements across multiple UK cities.

You’ll gain valuable insights into business areas across the bank, as you learn about performing audits to test the control frameworks, identifying the gaps and recommending solutions to suit their goals. Your time will be divided up between two types of audit teams in:

Functional Audit

See how the bank works for our clients, in our front-line, customer-facing business teams. You’ll cover diverse areas such as Retail Banking and Products, Insurance, Commercial Banking and Digital.

Risk Specialist Audit

This is the engine room of the organisation; the back office specialist areas that allow bank operations to work as fluidly as possible. You could find yourself anywhere from IT to HR, Finance to Credit Risk, or Group Operations.

Once you’ve completed placements in these areas, you’ll also do a placement outside of Audit to develop your understanding of how other areas work across the bank.

Throughout the programme, you will study for a professional qualification. This is fully funded and supported by the bank, and each of your placements are aligned to the qualification stage you’re at, to ensure the learning is relevant and readily applicable in your day to day role.

And, to help you define your strengths and career ambitions as they develop, we’ll provide you with a strong network of support including a business mentor, a graduate buddy, and an in-Audit Mentor, too.

During the 10-week programme, you’ll experience a range of audit teams – from those which focus on particular business functions, to those which specialise in particular areas of audit, such as risk. This variety will ensure you get the most rounded experience possible. Not only will your time in different areas give you a comprehensive understanding of the business, it will allow you to start developing your specialist audit methodology for your future career.
