FINANCE GOES BEYOND ACCOUNTING
Today’s financial markets are changing – maybe more than they have ever been. Emerging technology, new competitors and people’s changing expectations of their banks are just a few of the things that are shaping our industry.
Our role, in Finance, goes beyond accounting. We analyse those changes and advise our business and clients across the UK on their next move. We’re here to uncover patterns they haven’t yet seen, assess the financial impact, and help them shape new strategies. Given the speed at which these changes are happening, our work has a noticeable impact on the future of the bank and our purpose to help Britain prosper.
IS OUR FINANCE GRADUATE SCHEME FOR YOU?
Are you resourceful and passionate about building great relationships? If you are, you could join us in Finance.
Finance teams are the trusted advisors to our business. Our people come from diverse backgrounds but are all analytically minded, pragmatic and resilient. They try to see things in a different light; taking large amounts of complex information and uncovering the stories they tell. And, once they understand how a business works, they can develop strategies that help transform it, within a fast-changing industry.
Whatever your degree, if you love finding solutions and are excited to learn from colleagues across all levels of our business, we’ll help you to grow as a Finance specialist.
