Developing your career

We’re committed to offering you a wealth of learning and development tools, to help you get to where you want to be. The direction you choose to take your career in is ultimately down to you, but we’re here to support you every step of the way, with tools, mentors, opportunities and development plans. We will help you develop your own personal growth plan to enable you to take control of your professional and personal development, ensuring you can realise your full potential with us. 

Talent Marketplace: Unleash your talent, realise your potential

Just as much as we want you to be successful in the role you’re hired into, we also want to help you access opportunities and connections, outside your core role. We’ll help you discover ways to fulfil your career goals, surface hidden talents, acquire new skills and unlock your potential.

Through our talent marketplace, you can build a bespoke talent profile. Share your existing skills and expertise, as well as any skills you’re keen to develop. Our talent marketplace will take it from there. Using AI, the platform matches you to opportunities outside your day job.  You’ll be able to put yourself forward for projects and opportunities from different markets and teams and connect with mentors across our network. 

What do we gain? Your passion and energy to explore opportunities around your core role, provides us with diversity of thought, and a greater capacity to solve some of our most complex problems. We want to provide an inclusive and visible way for everyone, regardless of working location to explore opportunities and connect with mentors.

Together, we can harness your unique talents and make a positive difference for you and our clients.

How we support our leaders

We invest in our People Leader's personal development across the whole bank, with programmes and initiatives sponsored by our core management team. We inspire our managers to build lasting, collaborative and meaningful relationships with each other and ensure you're supported, inspired and recognised. These values are then passed on to the next generation of talent within the organisation.

Employee Stories Kathleen

Sink or swim: Kathleen’s story

I made the conscious decision to never ask my team to do anything that I wasn't willing to do myself.

Pushing boundaries and holding myself accountable

In everything I do, I ask myself- is this the right thing to do?
