What’s involved?

We have two roles available in our Mortgage Operations Division. These will be based in our Glasgow City Centre office.  

The programme will run for two years encompassing a number of rotations empowering you to become proficient across our lending business– you’ll get the skills and experience you need to take your career with us to the next level.

The first 6 months

  • You’ll start your lending journey with one of our sales teams, spending six months getting to know product design, marketing, organisational and how we ‘do business.’

Months 7 to 24

  • You will be immersed within our underwriting and operations team. This is where you will learn more about the customer journey, interact with our customers and understand, and apply, how we assess ‘taking on’ financial risk. In simple terms, what we need to do to lend money safely and responsibly for both our customers and our business.

We'll support you every step of the way

Your line manager will set you up with an individual learning plan and goals to help you complete your Apprenticeship and to identify any training that you’ll need to be successful in your role.

To make sure you’re set up for success, from day one you will have a member of the Senior Leadership team as a coach and a colleague as a buddy. And once you’re established in the programme, we’ll look for you to be a buddy, using your experience to guide and support new young talent.

In year two you’ll join our mentoring programme where we can really help you unleash and reach your potential.

The icing on the cake? You’ll establish a community where you will support each other, identify ways in which we can improve the programme, and welcome and grow new young talent as they join… you’ll be our programme ambassadors!
