Legal and Corporate Governance graduate programme

We’re driven by doing the right thing for our people. Not one decision is made without the mark of our values. It’s woven into everything we do, and is the fabric of our business. We rely on our law and governance function to help put these threads in place. Supporting and advising our boards, our legal roles have real influence throughout our Bank.

A leadership role in legal and corporate governance

If you’re interested in a career as a para-legal or company secretary, our progamme will give you the exposure and qualifications to get you going. You’ll experience all parts of the law function, including Litigation Law, Commercial Law and Company Secretariat, plus an elective rotation in either Employment Law or Retail Banking Law. You’ll also have the opportunity to gain experience in our Risk function.

Fantastic support

With the support of a mentor and a friendly team of professionals, you’ll find that we’re here for you every step of the way. You’ll have everything you need to drive your career forward as you study towards your Legal Executive, Para Legal or ICSA Chartered Secretaries qualification.

Are you made of the right stuff?

This isn’t a legal training contract so you won’t need a law degree. You will however need to be comfortable using your expertise in corporate law and governance to advise and influence at the highest level. You’ll take on real responsibility with considerable influence from the get go, so we need someone highly driven and ambitious. Someone who can communicate clearly and concisely, and who can be trusted to keep our confidential information safe. There’s a lot to take in, so you’ll need to be able to process large amounts of information.
