Starting to look for new role

When you are starting to look for a new role you might want to consider:

Networking

You will have built up a number of contacts at Nationwide since you joined. Some people find it helpful to reach out to their network for help and advice when they are looking for a new role. Ask people for their honest opinions around your strengths and weaknesses and roles they think might be suitable for you. This is a great way of finding out about upcoming vacancies as well.

Think about your strengths and where these fit within Nationwide:

  • What gets you interested or energised 
  • What you are an expert in or role model
