Apprenticeships

Our aim is to connect communities with a better financial future. So why not connect to your future by taking an apprenticeship with us?

What are Apprenticeships?

If you want to develop real skills, in a real business environment and meet some great people along the way, an Apprenticeship could be for you. Not only will you be awarded with a nationally recognised qualification, you’ll be earning as you are learning. So whether you are interested in gaining a qualification without the cost of University or you would like to develop a new career path, we have opportunities that can open the right door for you.

Why choose an Apprenticeship at Newcastle Building Society?

We know that by investing in our Apprentices, we are growing our next generation of talent. That’s why we choose to reward our Apprentices in a way that recognises the value and contribution they provide to our Society. We commit to paying our Apprentices the 'Real Living Wage' which is currently £15,925 per annum. That's nearly 2.5x the minimum Apprentice wage of £3.50 per hour (£6,370 per year). And that makes our Apprenticeship programmes really stand out from the crowd!

 

What is our commitment to you?

We are very proud of our culture, values and commitment to our customers and local communities and we know it’s our people that give us our strength.

We’re proud to say we’ve recently achieved “Gold” Investors in People standard which recognises our commitment to investing in our people in areas such as leadership, development and support. This reflects our focus on being a great place to work, where everyone is supported to realise their potential.

As an Apprentice within our Society, you will be part of a wider team of Apprentices, Undergraduates and Graduates and will be supported with tailored development to grow your skills and experience in areas such as Customer Focus, Innovating and Improving and Engaging Others. You’ll be supported by colleagues and mentors from across our business, who will be there to provide help, guidance and a friendly ear along the way.

Find the right programme for you?

This year we are set to offer a range of opportunities across a number of different business areas and levels. Keep an eye out for our 2018 openings coming soon!
