Bring your passion for finding and solving problems before they arise, and help us challenge the status quo.

We're protecting 26 million people across the UK

Identifying risk is critical to financial services – from technological threats to economic crime – and it’s constantly evolving. Protecting our 26 million customers and one million businesses is at the heart of everything we do, and our Risk Management teams keep us one step ahead of ever-changing threats. Now we’re searching for new talent to join them. If you’re looking for a career with impact – we have a job for you. And the great news is you don’t need a business or finance degree to come and work with us.

Is our Risk Management graduate scheme for you?

Are you a natural problem-solver who thinks strategically and can challenge assumptions? Do you look for innovative ways of doing things and encourage others to do the same? Are you eager to learn how a national organisation protects itself and its customers from different threats? If the answer is yes, you’ll be a great fit for our Risk Management teams.
Using intelligence and data-led risk management tools to prevent fraud and financial crime, and working on risk strategies for our products, you’ll build your leadership skills and knowledge. You’ll help our business to make the right decisions for our customers across the UK.

What you'll learn on the Risk Management graduate scheme

Over two years, you’ll complete three eight-month placements in different locations. Working in a variety of areas, you’ll develop your strengths and evolve your career through financial and non-financial risk management roles. You’ll discover how our teams assess and analyse threats using robotics and cognitive computing, and how they deal with the risks that directly affect our frontline divisions. And, you’ll gain the skills to help us transform policy – so that the way we safe-guard our organisation also helps protect our customers.

As well as offering a broad foundation for your career, this graduate scheme can help you decide where you’d like to specialise.

The work you could be doing

  •  Developing your understanding of credit risk, risk analysis and financial modelling
  •  Using artificial intelligence to simplify our risk management processes
  •  Analysing risks within the financial markets
  •  Creating bespoke customer strategies to help our commercial clients
  •  Supporting our fraud and financial crime prevention work on strategies to assess emerging risks

What you need to apply

A 2:2 degree or above in any discipline from any university.


Our graduate schemes are rotational, and our Risk Management roles are based in various cities around the UK, including London, Birmingham, Edinburgh, Leeds, Halifax and Bristol.

Our graduate schemes may close early if we receive a high number of applications, so it’s best to apply as soon as you can.
