About NatWest

NatWest Group is a relationship bank for a digital world. We champion potential; breaking down barriers and building financial confidence so the 19 million people, families and businesses we serve throughout the UK and Ireland can rebuild and thrive. If our customers succeed, so will we.

You may recognise some of our many brands, NatWest Group is the umbrella we all sit under, but this also includes The Royal Bank of Scotland, NatWest, Coutts, Adam & Company, Ulster Bank, Lombard and many more.

Our Internship and Insight Experiences will provide you with structured and supported learning with every chance to follow your interests.

Each of our programmes has its own distinctions and direction. Where do your skills lie, where can you be your best, what are your aspirations? Apply for the programme that makes you feel the most excited and we’ll be there to support you with the rest.

Being inclusive goes right to the core of our culture, and we hire the best people for the position on offer regardless of their gender, race, culture, creed, or physical abilities.

Our approach:

Ethnically diverse - It’s important that the diversity of our team reflects the diversity of our customers; so, we’ve set ourselves the goal of identifying, developing and appointing at least 14% Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) leaders by 2025.

Gender balanced - A gender balanced team is vital to our success and we're working towards a target of having women in 50% of our top-level leadership roles by 2030.

LGBT Innovative - As an inclusive employer, our goal is to deliver a better LGBT colleague and customer experience by continuously challenging the status quo. With insight, education and support we are working towards being an LGBT employer of choice.

Disability smart - We're positively addressing the needs of disabled colleagues and candidates, and we’ve set ourselves the goal to be recognised externally as a disability smart organisation through our actions, internal initiatives, and external partnerships.

We know our success depends on helping our customers succeed.

By championing potential, we can make a meaningful impact in our customers’ lives and equip them to play a positive part in the economy and environment.

We’re concentrating on bringing our purpose to life across three initial areas of focus:

  • Learning: As an organisation, we never stop learning. We investigate the latest technologies and invite the best of industry in so we can keep improving how we do what we do. This curiosity extends to our people too, and we make sure they have the tools and the ability to learn in ways that suit them.
  • Climate: We know that climate change is one of the greatest challenges facing our planet, and we intend to do our part to lead the transition to a green economy. We’re a leading lender to the UK renewables sector, and we’re helping shape our customers’ behaviours.
  • Enterprise: We’re already the UK’s biggest bank for enterprise. We’re now working to remove barriers which prevent people and groups from reaching their entrepreneurial potential.
