Software Engineering Early Careers Programmes


I got a taste of life at RBS during the internship, I realised what a friendly and supportive environment it was and the actual opportunities in technology to work into, so I chose that as well and also Edinburgh is always a bonus to live in. I love coding and technology, I think coding is really exciting because you can apply it to almost anything. So anywhere you work in the bank coding will help with your job and even in most of the things you do outside of the bank, you can find ways to apply technology to improve your work. I think one reason to join the internship or the graduate scheme at RBS is the immense number of opportunities that you get here. We’ve had the opportunity to get involved in hackathons, innovation challenges and also other social activities so it just doesn’t stop at your daily work, it really extends from that and people really drive you and push you, and motivate you to go out and get these opportunities as well. Yeah absolutely! I think one of the really fantastic things about the graduate programme is they really want you to develop yourself, so there is funding to go on courses if they are relevant to what you’re doing, they want you to spend time working with graduate councils, with employee led networks, with different people in the bank so that you can expand your network and you can grow your skills throughout your time at the bank. Wellbeing and personal development really go hand in hand at RBS so there’s always a big focus on making sure that you’re being yourself and you’re feeling confident in your role, and really focusing on that mental wellbeing. There’s nothing better than going for a walk around the campus on a sunny day. I’m coming to the end of my programme right now and I’m really excited to roll off into a permanent position at the bank. Not sure exactly what I’ll be doing yet but I’ve been really enjoying in my current role helping people on a regular basis, so I want to find something that will allow me to keep doing that.
