Since joining The Co‑operative Bank as a Graduate Trainee, I have actively contributed to a number of large-scale projects, adding real value and actually helping to achieve the Bank’s strategic plan. In addition, I’m currently working towards a professional qualification. It really is an amazing place to build a career.
Audit Leadership Programme
The opportunity to join the only bank on the high street with a customer-led ethical policy really appealed to me. Throughout the selection process the level of contact was excellent - way beyond other companies. I’m now looking forward to seeing all of the different sides of digital within banking.
Digital Leadership Programme
Not only do I share the same values, I chose The Co‑operative Bank because of the supportive and inclusive culture and the opportunity to complete a professional qualification while working on exciting new initiatives.
Banking Leadership Programme
The ethical principles and opportunity to impact on a business that is experiencing a real turn-around really appealed to me. Everyone is welcoming, this was my No1 choice.
Technology & Transformation Graduate
Don’t worry if your degree isn’t geared towards banking. I did a degree in Chemistry. I can see how I can apply my skills and I couldn’t resist the opportunity to work in different teams and get involved with projects from start to finish.
