When you think of a career in Technology, what springs to mind?

  • Being at the forefront of cutting edge developments, innovation, creativity and helping to drive businesses forward?
  • Whether studying a related Degree or not, a career in here could provide you with the experiences you least expect
  • We all use it, so why not be a part of it, helping to build our bank for the future
  • Keep an open mind, and remember:

It’s not all about coding!

  • Graduates use a range of skills and the wide variety of roles and our people reflect this (only 3 of our Graduates studied Computer Science in our 2014 intake).
  • All roles will be technical in nature, so an analytical mindset will help, but these roles are suitable for Graduates interested in a wide range of careers – Graduates go on to be Business Analysts or Project Managers as well as Software Developers

You don’t need experience

  • Learning and development is at the very heart of the Graduate Programme.
  • A complete training programme is provided to bring everyone up to the same level.
  • Your Manager provides you with a project that has been pre approved with clearly defined objectives which are achievable at your level of experience.
  • The Services Graduate Programme will bring a greater breadth of opportunities, and we still have opportunities available in Edinburgh starting this September.

RBS is an empowering place to work. We believe there’s a right way to do business and we’ve created a fair, open, honest culture that will value the part you play. Get ready to drive positive change as you rise to the challenge of building a better bank for our customers.

We have high expectations of our employees and we’ll give you the tools and support to deliver on them. After all, the sooner you reach your potential, the sooner you can start shaping our future. Expect exposure to live projects and lots of responsibility from the word go, supported by a formal induction and structured training from industry experts.

Alongside your professional progress, we’re equally interested in your personal, ethical and social development. You’ll find four deeply-held values driving your work at RBS: serving customers, working together, doing the right thing and thinking long term. These are the principles making us a stronger bank and they’re something you need to believe in.

Prepare for broader horizons too. We’re an international bank with graduate opportunities on an impressive scale, whatever your degree subject. We have careers for analytical minds, strategic thinkers, technology heads and business brains. Wherever you join, you’ll get to see a huge range of business areas, with genuine internal mobility on offer.

What you can expect

An experience that spans all of the Services divisions including: technology development, infrastructure, technical architecture, transformation and change. The holistic approach will give you insight into how we impact the customer and work towards simplifying and creating new solutions for them. Technology & Transformation is a diverse field with functions and specialist teams in over 30 countries. 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 based in Edinburgh, 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.

Who we are looking for

You don’t need to come to us with advanced technical skills. Many of our graduate trainees have degrees in engineering, mathematics, economics, computing and sciences. But 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.
