Technology at RBS
Technology is what drives us forward, and is what keeps the bank running. Some teams make sure our deals and payments actually happen. Others manage our technology infrastructure so that we can deliver secure banking services with the excellent service our customers deserve. As the first Bank to provide ApplePay for our customers, an innovative streak is at the heart of the area that sees us continually looking for new and better ways to run our business. We work closely with colleagues across the bank to deliver the solutions they need to build a better future. Technology development, infrastructure, technical architecture, transformation and change. The holistic approach to our Graduate programmes will give you insight into how we impact the customer and work towards simplifying and creating new solutions. It’s the key to everything we do and allows us to trade across time zones, perform complex calculations, transfer funds and disseminate information.
As a graduate, you'll complete placements around our business. You could work on major international change programmes or the delivery of next-generation solutions and play a vital part in building and maintaining the technology which allows us to retain our competitive edge. Throughout, your work will touch all aspects of RBS, so variety – and the chance to explore the full spectrum of what we do – is guaranteed.
We have announced a new plan for the future of RBS; and the key to this plan is building a bank that earns its customers' trust, by serving them better than any other bank. RBS will be a smaller, simpler and smarter UK-focused bank that has the needs of its customers at its core. We want our customers to trust us more, and do more business with us, which in turn, will improve the performance of the bank.
By 2020, we aim to be the number one bank for customer service and the most trusted bank in the UK. Building an engaged and inclusive workforce is crucial to our company’s success. Our programmes offer you the chance to do more than learn. We’ll value your suggestions, stretch you from the word go and give you every opportunity to make your mark. So if you have the talent, vision, fresh perspective and energy to help shape our business, a career with us is a challenge that can inspire and empower in equal measure.
The challenges we face over the next few years are unparalleled in the UK financial sector. And because we believe in letting our graduates contribute from day one, you’ll experience them first hand. The energy you bring, skills you develop and value you add will have a direct impact on how we handle the demanding times ahead.
Who we are looking for
You don’t need to come to us with advanced technical skills. We’ll consider anyone showing a keen interest in and aptitude for technology. Plus, as well as technical development you will be encouraged to develop broader capabilities such as communication, project management, team working and influencing skills.
It’s also important that you’re resilient, articulate and great with people. This isn’t an inward-looking business area: you’ll establish and maintain strong relationships with stakeholders at all levels and work across different sites as you do so.
Whatever your degree discipline, we ask all our graduates to have a minimum 2:1. We’ll also consider your top three A-level (or equivalent) grades from the first sitting (excluding General Studies) and look for a minimum of 300 UCAS points.
