A Graduate Programme with a difference
Like other employers you could be considering, we need graduates who are go-getters; ambitious, driven, and full of curiosity. We also promise to give you all the opportunities you can handle to continue learning and developing to achieve your career goals.
But, we’re different too. Very different. Because at Nationwide, as well as having the enormous scope of a top financial services provider, we’re a mutual, here to provide the best for our 15 million members.That means investing in people and technology, researching and innovating to deliver the products and services our members deserve.
And we’ve remained true to our roots. ‘Building society, nationwide’ is more than providing mortgages – it’s supporting our local communities, funding housing initiatives, doing the right thing.
So, on our Graduate programme, you really can have it all. Head and heart. Leading edge careers and social purpose.
Who we're looking for
We’re all about the power of the collective, so you’ll be using your excellent communication skills to build strong and lasting working relationships. You’ll be a quick learner, inquisitive, always focused on solutions and have the tenacity to bring them to life. In this digital age, we need people who are familiar with all the apps and devices that make our world go round too.
Our members are at the heart of everything we do, so a passion for providing excellent customer service is a must. The path to the right result is rarely straightforward so you’ll have to be comfortable navigating challenges and managing ambiguity. As a high performing, ambitious deliverer, we’ll rely on you to be decisive, organised and proactive.
What you'll be doing
Our two-year programme (Finance is 3 years) makes sure you gain an in-depth knowledge of teams specific to your chosen career path. On-the-job learning is crucial to understanding the skills and expertise required in any role so from the day you start, and on each of your rotations, you'll be doing a real job with clear expectations and targets.
This year we’re asking you to choose which disciplines best suits your interest and skill set; Analyst, Change, Customer & Employee Experience, Digital, Finance, Modelling and Risk. As part of this discipline, you’ll complete several placements within your specialism but within one specific business area. You will remain within this area throughout your time with us.
