Supporting every aspect of our Bank, we’re changing fast to make the most of our enormous potential and shape the ethical bank of the future. So you can expect to work on both high impact and business-as-usual projects as you work towards qualifying and progressing as an Accountant within retail banking.

Here, we won’t box you in; all kinds of career paths will open up to you. This means plenty of variety, coaching and opportunities to lead live projects as you drive your own development across all kinds of areas to become a well-rounded finance manager.

A leadership role in finance
Everything you do will prepare you for a leadership role in finance. Our wide-ranging rotational placements will give you a broad view of our Bank and get you up to speed with our inner workings. You’ll learn about strategy, internal and external financial reporting, systems and regulatory capital. You’ll develop your financial accounting skills in financial control and technical and statutory reporting. You’ll help our teams to achieve their goals as a finance analyst within financial planning, performance and analytics. And you’ll become a part of the financial regulatory reporting team, understanding how regulation has evolved over the years and assisting in the regulatory process.

Fantastic support
Thanks to your mentor and wide support network, you’ll quickly develop your personal, technical and leadership skills. Tailored to you and your ambitions, your personal development plan will also help you gain a relevant Accountancy qualification. .

Are you made of the right stuff?
Someone who will grab every opportunity with both hands, you should be a fast learner and as driven as we are. Not afraid to run with ideas that could transform the world of banking, you should also be innovative and commercially focused with a good head for figures. The kind of person who always sees things through and wants to take on more and more responsibility, you should have an analytical brain and be a great communicator and problem solver.

• Passion working for a bank with values and ethics at it's heart
• At least a 2:1 degree or a 2:2 with a Masters (ideally in a numerical, scientific, analytical or business related subject)
• GCSE Maths and English (or equivalent) at grade C or above
• Excellent numerical and analytical skills
• The unrestricted right to live and work in the UK
