Combining valuable practical experience and vital learning, the RBS Apprenticeship provides you with everything you need to develop a rewarding career and shape your future. Expect to be challenged as you expand your skills with a hands-on education, gaining invaluable insight and training on the job.

We have big ambitions for our apprentices. It’s your new ideas, fresh thinking and customer focus – along with the technical expertise you’ll gain – that will build our bank in the months and years ahead. Throughout the apprenticeship and beyond, we’ll help you reach your potential in an environment that will stretch you from day one.

If you’re aged 16 or over and keen to take your first step on the career ladder, please take some time to explore this section and learn more about RBS Apprenticeships.

As an RBS Apprentice you will enjoy a whole host of benefits. For a start, you’ll earn a competitive salary as you learn through on-the-job training. And you’ll also have plenty of support from your buddy as you study towards a professional qualification through a structured online learning and development programme which you can manage in your own time. Formal networking opportunities will allow you to meet colleagues from across the business and, with our team innovation challenges and soft skill training, you’ll be given everything you need to succeed in your role. All in all, it’s a fantastic alternative to continuing in full-time education and a unique opportunity to become part of a diverse, challenging and exciting organisation.

We understand that as a school leaver there are a lot of important choices to make about your future, and whether to continue education or start a job can be the most difficult.

N.B. The RBS Apprenticeship is an entry-level programme, so priority is given to candidates who do not have a higher education qualification. If you are educated to degree level or have the equivalent work experience, you might want to apply for one of our graduate vacancies or an experienced hire position instead.
