Apprentices are some of the brightest minds in our impressively talented team. To maintain that real time activity around the world, across investment, corporate and retail banking, you need smooth-running, constantly improving systems behind the scenes. Payments need to be processed. Credit card systems need to be maintained. Trades, equity transactions, debt financing - you name it - it has to be slick, effective and swiftly processed so our customers and clients receive excellent service, every time. That essential work, encompassing absolutely everything we do, is down to the Operations team.

There'll be on-the-job training where you'll learn through valuable practicalexperience. And you'll have the chance to gain a recognised Apprenticeship Degree Qualification - fully-funded by us.

Don't forget you've got wide-ranging support from a line manager, career coach and a technical buddy, as well as a network of peers. Wherever you're based, you'll find the spirit of teamwork and a highly collaborative community.
