Our goal in Finance

Our customers expect their money to be well managed. We help our colleagues to make clear decisions while developing the right long-term financial strategy.

We tie together all the financial activity across the bank through analysis, insight and reporting. It’s our job to manage the bank’s balance sheet, report on our financial performance, and make sure we’re making the right decisions for 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. Who better to find out what working in a business area is like than from the people who are currently already working there?
