Business & Commercial Graduate Programme - UK

Still recruiting throughout COVID‑19

Job description

Bank of Ireland is the sum of many parts, working together to deliver on our collective strategy.

From business areas involved in the design and sales of our products, serving our customers excellently, or trading on international markets, all parts of the Bank work as one group, one team. Our customer facing and revenue generating teams are supported by colleagues in Operations, Legal, Marketing, Human Resources and many more.

Our UK business includes a retail partnership bank providing simple, flexible, accessible financial service propositions to UK customers, both directly and through partnerships with trusted, respected UK brands and intermediaries. We partner with two of the most trusted brands in the UK (the Post Office and the AA). Partnership is what makes Bank of Ireland UK unique - and what sets us apart from our competitors.

In addition, we provide a comprehensive range of banking services to the corporate market across eight niche sectors.

We work closely with our customers, using our sector knowledge to capitalise on their strengths and realise opportunities for them to grow. The Corporate Banking UK team manages some of the Bank’s largest and most prestigious privately owned and public listed domestic and international clients operating in our chosen sectors across technology, media, healthcare, industrial manufacturing, consumer, business services, advanced industrials and hotels.

When applying, you will have the opportunity to express your key areas of interest.

The Programme

Each programme stream offers a rotational experience across different areas in the Bank. Each rotation is specifically developed to enable Graduates to develop the critical skills that will accelerate your development and growth.

During your three rotations, you will build strong management, interpersonal and technical skills, as well as getting exposure to business critical projects in a fast paced environment.

You are empowered throughout to seek new experiences and expand your network through cross collaboration. You will have the opportunity to experience different areas of the business, or to contribute to meaningful transformation projects that support our Group strategy.

Your final rotation will see accelerated responsibility in your role, applying your learning to date. You will also cap the experience off by taking part in a Graduate project challenge which is supported with funded prizes.

The opportunity

As part of the programme you will gain exposure to colleagues across numerous business areas allowing you to build a substantial network across the Bank. Through our unique Digital Academy, you will also be able to explore opportunities and future career paths, as well as receiving top-class mentoring through the Bank of Ireland Mentorship Programme.

Members of the Graduate Programme have strong visibility in Bank of Ireland with regular touchpoints with Leadership, including the CEO and Executive Committee.

Our Graduate Programme is often a feeder into one of Bank of Ireland’s talent programmes which are designed to accelerate the growth of identified high-performing individuals.

What you will get in return

Each Graduate will embark on a bespoke two-year Digital Development Plan to uplift digital skills and capabilities to ensure they are equipped for the Future of Work. Our hybrid working model offers colleagues greater flexibility in how and where they work, meaning that the traditional 9 – 5 office base will be less prevalent, with work from home, digital collaboration and hot desking options commonplace.

Our Graduates build an outstanding community in Bank of Ireland, and while we are working in a less face to face environment, Graduates will have their own Digital Hangout, which makes it easy to interact, socialise and share ideas with other Graduates.

Bank of Ireland Group is an equal opportunities employer and is committed to fostering an inclusive workplace which values and benefits from the diversity of our workforce.
