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 of the Group’s financial activity so we can make, spend and invest money wisely. We manage our 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. What better way to find out what working in a business area is like, than from the people who are already working there?

Is the programme for you?
Are you the sort of person who likes to use your analytical skills to see how we use data to make decisions to improve what matters most to our customers and investors? Are you interested in developing your relationship management skills with people across all levels of the bank? Do you want to find out about how we help our stakeholders manage their business, and support them in planning for the future? Our Finance internship programme could be your perfect match.
This is your chance to gain up to date knowledge on the ever-changing financial services environment, and to take part in our external reporting activities, providing insights and analysis to help with business decisions.
The aim of this eight-week Internship is to give you a taste of what it’s like to work here, along with valuable skills and experiences that you’ll bring into your future career.
Where can our programme take you?
For the full eight weeks, 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 Finance Graduate programme, where you can carry the skills you’ve learnt forward and take the next step in your career.
What can you gain from the programme?
- An understanding of the design and implementation of new organisational structures within Finance
- A chance to take part in projects to help us become more efficient, embedding continuous improvement
- Exposure to budget cycles and forecasting work
