Training and Development

Building for the future

Starting your career with us? We’ll make sure you have everything you need to build the future you want. You’ll be assigned a graduate coach who will support you throughout the programme and work with you – alongside your line managers – to create a personal development plan.

Our fantastic training opportunities have helped us become one of The Times Top 100 Graduate Employers. This means we’re recognised for helping people like you to discover who you are, what you’re good at and how you could help to build the bank of the future.

All of our graduate programmes are rotational. This means you’ll move from one business area to another, working with different teams – often across different cities – to experience all aspects of our work. So, as well as learning lots about our business, you’ll discover more about what you enjoy and which career path is right for you.

Whichever programme you choose, you’ll also have access to these opportunities:
