The programme

It's vital you take the time to understand which graduate programme is right for you, so make sure you read through this section and size up the full range of our opportunities. Entry requirements and course structure vary considerably, but there's one thing all of our programmes have in common: you'll be developing your skills, gaining experience and contributing to real-world results from the moment you join us.

Ready? It starts here.

Enabling Functions- Quantitative Modelling graduate programme

In our work there are only two variables that really count: risk for our business and value for our business. We'll show you how to minimise the first and maximise the second from the start of this programme. As you gain the blend of technical skills, real-world experience and personal development you need to build your career here. You'll be surrounded by experts as you prove yourself in model development, model validation, scorecard development and stress testing, treasury capital management, operational risk, market risk and internal audit, during three four-month rotations within the quantitative environment across our business units.

What you'll get

We're committed to quality and value in everything we offer our customers. And because you'll contribute to both from the moment you join us, it's only fair we recognise the quality you bring. And just how much we value it.

You'll see it in how we manage and reward your performance, as well as the extra benefits you could be entitled to – perhaps even shares in the bank. It all depends on the programme you choose, plus one huge factor: you.

How you'll grow

We strive to push our bank forward so we can effect real, positive change for the communities we work in today, and those we hope to work in tomorrow. But nothing's more important than helping our people push themselves forward and expand their potential.

Your core training is adapted to the programme you choose. But everything else is down to you. Right here is a world of development opportunities – anything from shadowing senior colleagues to sharing expertise at international conferences – and a continent of untapped potential. Your chances; your choices.
