Graduate Programme: Technology Solutions, Technology - Edinburgh

Within the Technology Solutions pathway you can apply to either our Technology programme or our Data & Analytics programme. Both these two year programmes are designed to equip you with the skills and experiences you’ll need to become a leading technology professional.

These programmes aren’t just about technology – they’re about the people who use it, the possibilities it creates, and how we work together to harness this potential.

The Technology programme covers a broad range of areas, from software design to systems architecture, and will see you working closely with teams throughout the function. Our Data & Analytics programme specifically focusses on the fast-evolving world of data. You’ll learn how we harness data across the bank and get involved with exciting projects on Big Data and the development of our Data Warehouse.

Both programmes have a starting salary of £28,000. On top of your salary you’ll also have access to our flexible benefits package.

On both programmes you can look forward to:

  • Interpreting project goals and working collaboratively with technology and business colleagues to map solutions
  • Learning about our strategy, emerging technologies and how we continually improve the service to our customers
  • Building the technical skills needed to succeed as an analyst
  • Developing the confidence and influencing skills to raise ideas and challenge the status quo

You can read in more detail about the individual programmes in the listings below.

After a full induction, each programme is structured around four, six month rotations, based in different areas of the function. The scale and diversity of RBS means you’ll benefit from an excellent range of placement options.

On completing the programme, we hope to see you join us in a permanent role. We’ll be advising you on career development throughout, but particularly during your last rotation we’ll focus on which roles you could step into next.

The Technology Solutions pathway is excellent preparation for a wide range of career paths, and some of the possible next roles to move into could include:

  • Software Engineer
  • Data Analyst
  • Quality Analyst

Supporting you

We pride ourselves on the professional support we offer our graduates, and the friendly, down to earth community our graduates have shaped themselves.

Before you start, you’ll be paired with a ‘buddy’ (a graduate already on the programme) who’ll be there to help you get settled, answer any questions, and share their experiences.

You’ll also be assigned a Graduate Coach and a Placement Manager. Your Graduate Coach will be there to provide support throughout the programme, and will work with you to create a personal Capability Plan; your Placement Manager will provide rotation specific support, and will change with each placement. Together, they’ll help you reflect on your progress, develop your career, and build your professional network.
