Technology Apprenticeship Programme

Our Technology, Data and Innovation (TDI) Apprenticeship Programme is your opportunity to gain valuable work-experience at the heart of a global bank, rapidly transforming the way we work and the way our industry works.

Over 18 months, you will have a combination of technical learning and on-the-job training in the TDI teams, leading to a Level 4 Software Developer qualification.

As part of an innovative and collaborative technology team, you will be on the frontline helping to deliver and manage engineering solutions for the bank’s global customers. You’ll also become part of a diverse and inclusive network that will continue to support you for the rest of your career.

Programme and training overview

We’ve designed this apprentice programme for school leavers in order to provide a combination of technical learning (which can include a mixture of virtual and classroom training, attendance at conferences and seminars), skills development, and opportunities to work on ground-breaking projects.

In the classroom, you’ll learn everything from the essentials of software development to the latest innovations in big data and AI. On the job, you’ll get the chance to turn your learning into impact as you work alongside industry experts on real projects and managers who will coach and mentor you to achieve your potential.

As an apprentice you’ll be exposed to the most exciting challenges our industry faces as well as the latest advances in financial technology. You will also develop and deliver solutions to improve processes, reduce complexity and risk, and drive business growth.
