The dynamic and inclusive nature of our HR function makes it an exciting place to start your career. Our aim is to support our colleagues across the bank from the moment they join us. We’re always welcoming new talent to create the best future for our customers, colleagues and the bank.
What you can expect
Immerse yourself in our vibrant world, and you’ll be learning about all areas of HR. On our graduate programme you’ll be supporting our most diverse business areas.
You’ll discover your future career by getting involved in a variety of roles, from recruiting future talent and designing learning programmes, to recommending pay structures, and analysing market data. Or you could even find yourself partnering with the business in strategic HR projects focused on all manner of people related issues.
Whatever you choose to specialise in, you’ll develop the skills and experience to become a trusted, commercially savvy, and successful HR professional.
Who we’re looking for
If you share our determination to create a great place to work and serve our customers, why not join us? We ask all our graduates to have a minimum 2:1 degree, in any discipline. And you don’t need any specific UCAS points for this programme.
You’ll need to be flexible and resilient, and have prior experience in a role where you’ve actively engaged with people, projects or innovation. You’ll be proactive, open-minded, creative, commercially aware, and be comfortable dealing with ambiguity.
We’ll support you in building a network, and you’ll be working with HR experts who will help you unlock your leadership potential and hone your decision making skills.
By working with others, building trust and helping your colleagues and peers, you’ll be shaping a career you can be proud of.
Development and support
Over your two year programme, you’ll experience placements in a variety of our HR teams. Our HR Graduate Programme is UK wide, and you’ll rotate across placements in various locations - typically Edinburgh and Manchester.
We’ll also make sure you have all the support you need as you study for your CIPD (Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development) qualification.
Future Career Path
Work hard and perform well, and by the end of the programme you could be a fully qualified HR professional ready to tackle your first significant role.
