A programme with us is about more than just the chance to learn. It’s about making a difference. It’s about applying your talent, and turning your ideas into actions. That’s why we’ll support you, and give you every opportunity to make your mark. If you have talent, energy, and the commitment to help shape our business, a career with us is a challenge that will inspire and motivate you.

We want you to make a real contribution to RBS. You can look forward to early responsibility, exposure across different business areas, exceptional training, and the chance to develop skills that will shape the rest of your career. And then there are your colleagues, buddies and managers, who’ll encourage you to share your opinions and ideas, helping you reach your full potential.

Whatever your degree, A Level/Highers subject areas or level of experience, there’s a place for you here – as long as you have passion and determination. Wherever you join us, your experiences will give you a deep insight into how our business works today, and help you to shape our agenda for tomorrow while you pursue your own unique career path.

We’re determined to make a difference – to our customers, our people and the communities we serve. Fairness and honesty are at the heart of how we work, and our culture is positive, professional and friendly.
