Over two years, you’ll experience four rotations across a diverse range of areas. These will include Small to Medium Sized Enterprises (SME), Mid Markets (MM), Products and Credit placements, and they’ll take you to different cities across the UK.

You’ll discover more about what interests you in our SME teams, whose fast-growing portfolio of clients trade domestically and internationally, turning over between £1 million and £25 million. And explore the work of our MM teams, with a turnover between £25 million and £750 million, where you can help support the financial needs of more mature businesses. Your preferences can have an impact on where you do some of your placements though, so we encourage you to embrace your passions.

This programme will give you a dynamic mix of practical on-the-job learning, industry renowned professional qualifications, expert-led workshops, and mentoring from highly experienced business leaders.

Throughout the programme, you’ll study for a professional qualification to become a Chartered Banker, develop your relationship–building and analytical skills, and expand your product knowledge in a way that’ll prepare you for an impressive career. And, to help you understand your strengths and career ambitions as they change along the way, you’ll be appointed a development manager.

 Before long, you’ll be building a career that matters to you, within a team that finds ways to help support organisations that shape the landscape of British business, every day.
