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 will pay our Apprentices at least £8.45 per hour (£15,390) per year. 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!
