The Co-operative BankThe Co-operative Bank
Here at The Co operative Bank, we provide financial products and services to personal and business banking customers across the UK. And as we simplify our Bank, we feel we can offer a more personal service to our customers – and greater scope to you.
Every person’s unique contribution at The Co operative Bank is recognised – and won’t be swallowed up and lost like it might in a larger, sprawling operation. Here, your work directly impacts on the wider Bank, as well as the close-knit team around you. You might think that’s something you should take for granted. But our people tell us time and again that it’s all part of what makes The Co operative Bank different.

“When I started looking at different graduate schemes, I wanted the opportunity to lead projects rather than work on them. I also wanted exposure to senior colleagues and something that combined analytical thinking with practical application. This leadership Programme has delivered on all counts. It’s exceeded my expectations.
I genuinely didn’t think I’d have the level of opportunity and exposure to senior leaders that I’ve had. None of my friends who are on other graduate schemes with larger employers have enjoyed the same level of sustained exposure and the personal approach I’ve experienced. If you can learn quickly in a constantly changing environment I’d really encourage you to apply”
