  • Location: United Kingdom
  • Salary: £17,682 - £17,682
  • Contract Type: Fixed Term Contract
  • Ref: R00ET00267
  • Closing Date: 06 November 2020

We’re looking for people who are passionate about analytics; highly numerate, enjoy working under pressure and have a desire to make a difference.

Our 12-month placement gives you a valuable first look at what it’s like to work here, with real responsibility and accountability. Choose which area best suits your interest and skill set: our Finance Generalist or Treasury Specialist Industrial Placement.

At Nationwide we openly put our 15 million members at the centre of every decision we make as a business. Every role, no matter what it’s doing, is member focused.

You’ll be based within either Finance or Treasury throughout your time with us, developing your experience and knowledge. We view our Industrial Placements as a pipeline into our Graduate Programmes.

Please ensure you apply early, due to the popularity of our Industrial Placements we will close adverts before the application deadline if sufficient application numbers have been reached.

What you’ll be doing

If you’re ambitious and driven to succeed, you’ve come to the right place. This is a real job and you’ll be on the ground ensuring we spend our members’ money wisely, improving efficiency and productivity in everything we do.

On the Finance programme, you could be working in areas including: Financial Reporting, Financial Controls and Operations, Treasury, Financial Planning and Stress Testing, Efficiency and Cost Management and Strategy & Change.

Within the Treasury Specialist, you will undertake all your placements within the Treasury sub-community.

Location is flexible, however there may be a requirement to be in Swindon or London office for some days a week depending on your placement.

About you

Building and maintaining strong working relationships will give you a firm foundation upon which to tackle complex and sometimes ambiguous challenges. Attention to detail and an eagerness to find solutions is the key to succeeding.

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.

We’re also interested in who you are as a person. Why? Because our membership is made up of so many different kinds of people, so we want our employees to be just as diverse. We’d love to hear about your values, what makes you who you are and how you’d make a difference to our members in this role.

The extras you’ll get

As well as a fixed-term contract and a competitive starting salary (£17,682 pa), as a valued member of the team we offer you:

  • A 12-month placement from Sept 2021 until Sept 2022
  • A real job – you’ll be contributing to the organisation while you learn
  • Access to an annual performance related bonus
  • Access to training to help you develop and progress your career
  • A personal pension – if you put in 7% of your salary, we’ll top up by a further 16%
  • A great selection of additional benefits through our salary sacrifice scheme
  • 25 days holiday, plus Bank Holidays
  • And a warm glow from helping our members

Why work at Nationwide

We’re a building society founded by ordinary people, our members, who came together to help each other get the most from their money, buy homes and save for their futures. For over 130 years, we’ve supported each other and our communities, and we’ve done the right thing for wider society too.

If you come to work here at Nationwide, you’ll be part of that. Part of something a bit different. And something really quite special.

What’s more, we have a strong ethic of care for each other and our members. We recognise that our employees feel most appreciated when their thoughts and values are respected and considered. We’re committed to creating a culture that recognises and truly values our individual differences and identities. So if you’d like to be a part of an inclusive workplace where you can be yourself, where your talents are nurtured, and you feel empowered to contribute, then please apply and help us in building society, nationwide.
