Working here

You make us stronger

We know we couldn’t do what we do without our people. Join us and you’ll be part of a diverse, bright and brilliant team.

You’ll feel like you’re part of a entrepreneurial start-up. Every decision you make will matter. Every action will count. And you’ll be surrounded by people who’ll support you.

Take control of your career

People here are focused on the future and strive to improve. So we give you all the opportunities you need to advance your career.

  • Use our e-learning tools – choose the topics that matter most to you.
  • Get regular feedback – develop as you go, by learning from your peers.
  • Use our transparent annual promotions process – you choose when to start the next step. You can put yourself forward for a promotion, with backing from your manager and a sponsor.
  • Join one of our learning programmes – push your career in the direction you want with one of our five programmes.

Analyst & Associate programme

We set this up to support the people who are the future of our business. It’s led by analysts and associates themselves with the support of experienced colleagues. The programme focuses on learning and development, corporate responsibility, networking and feedback.

Come back to work with us

If you were previously a senior manager, but have been out of the world of work for two years or more, you can apply to join the Comeback programme.

It’s a paid, 12-week ‘returnship’ which can be the ideal way to explore returning to work long-term.

Instead of a set role, we’ll look for creative ways to help you find a place in our business, and team you up with a performance coach and mentors for personal support.

Read some real stories

We asked 5 colleagues from NatWest Markets who’ve recently been on the programme to share their experience. This is what they had to say.

Inclusion comes as standard

For us, inclusivity is not just a nice-to-have. We believe diversity is absolutely fundamental to reaching our full potential as people and as a business. We’re working towards a target of having women in 35% of our senior roles by 2020.

In 2016 we launched an Inclusion Champions initiative, giving all of us the chance to promote diversity and inclusion in every aspect of how we work and what we do. Our vibrant employee-led networks are also continuing to educate and drive the inclusion conversation.

Work-life balance is important

When it comes to flexible working, we lead where other banks follow. If your role allows it, we’re happy if you’d like to spend part of the week working from home. And there are job-sharing and part-time opportunities too. We believe in flexible working patterns and locations, we encourage ownership of your workload and time to enable you to do those things outside of work that are important to you.

Join one of our employee networks

They can push your career in new directions, and give you the power to directly influence how we work. Our groups are helping us drive the inclusion conversation.

There are currently five to choose from:

  • The family and carer network – balancing your work and your family.
  • The gender network – helping us make sure we have gender diversity across the organisation.
  • The rainbow network – influencing how we work with LGBT customers, colleagues and communities.
  • Enable network – promoting awareness of disability and its impact, and
  • The multicultural network – making sure we’re all aware of cultural differences.
