Our goal in Digital Transformation

As a relationship bank for a digital world, our focus is on the digital transformation supported by data driven insights to best support our customers, whilst keeping our bank safe and secure using the latest technologies to drive, influence and execute change and transformation across the bank.

We pave the way for the bank to be digital, data and purpose driven – keeping us ahead of the curve when meeting the needs of our customers.

What’s great about the programme?

Every area of our business is different – they each need their own skillsets, their own challenges, their own nuances. What better way to find out what working in a business area is like, than from the people who are already working there?

Where can our programme take you?

For the full eight weeks, you will be aligned to a placement and we’ll pair you with a ‘buddy’ and a line manager, who’ll support you in gaining valuable experience to help guide your career choices.

During the programme, you’ll also work with other interns on a business project. This’ll help you develop key skills covering team working, planning, creative thinking, presenting, business plan writing and problem solving – gaining crucial experience in presenting to stakeholders.

You’ll also get time to support good causes in the communities we serve through a Corporate Social Responsibility day.

At the end of the placement, we’ll assess you on what you’ve learned. Complete this successfully and you could be offered a place on our 2025 Digital Transformation Graduate programme, where you can carry the skills, you’ve learnt and take the next step in your career.

What can you gain from the programme?

  • Experience gathering and analysing data, assessing the impact, and proposing recommendations to support the implementation of change
  • An understanding of innovative technologies that will have a positive impact on our future
  • The project management and consulting skills to support your customers and colleagues
  • Interactions with customer journeys, developing an understanding of the cutting-edge technologies that will have a positive impact on our customers and our future as a bank
