Help us protect 26 million people across the UK

Protecting our 26 million customers has never been more important. Our Risk function teams are leading the way by identifying threats, from market instability to cyber attacks and financial crime. We’re now looking for new talent to join them.

If you want variety and exposure to each corner of the Risk function, we would strongly encourage you to consider this programme. The great news is that you don’t even need a business or finance degree!


Is our Risk graduate scheme for you?

Are you flexible and adaptable with an agile mind and leadership ambitions? Are you looking for a scheme that offers broad experience, and will lay the foundations for a career that could take you in any number of different directions?

If the answer is yes, Risk could be the perfect choice for you. Using intelligence and a host of sophisticated technologies – including robotics and cognitive computing – the work we do in Risk is all about helping colleagues across the Group make the right decisions for our customers.

What you'll learn on the Risk graduate scheme

Join us here and over two years, you’ll complete four six-month placements – each focusing on a different aspect of our work. Together, they'll give you a holistic view of risk management, and the role it plays within the Group.

You'll learn how we analyse and assess risk to forecast future performance. You’ll get to grips with the frameworks we have in place to combat fraud and financial crime. You'll get hands-on with sophisticated data modelling techniques that help us tease out the value in information, and on one placement, dive deeper into a particular area, like sustainability and climate risk.

Along the way, you'll also be developing all-important personal effectiveness and leadership capabilities. So by the end of the programme, you'll have everything you need to progress your career – either in a generalist risk management role or along whichever specialist path you choose.
