    Apprentice - Milton Keynes

  • "I would definitely recommend the apprenticeship programme; it has given me direction regarding the career I have. There are lots of opportunities in the bank and I would advise anyone to push themselves out of their comfort zone"


    Apprentice – Glasgow

  • "I applied for many jobs, but no one would give me a chance. I couldn’t get work experience without already having some experience, but I also couldn’t get this experience without already having work experience. However, via the apprenticeship route you were able to find a way of working. I like how my role and qualification intertwined"
