Graduate Programme

Coventry Building Society

Job description

We have a wide range of graduate programmes on offer so whether you are looking to develop your skills to become our next subject matter expert or if you’re passionate about learning to manage a team, Coventry Building Society has a programme which will match your ambition.

Over a period of two years you’ll complete a number of placements – we’ll give you an insight into different teams, how they work together and the positive impact they have on Coventry Building Society and its members.

How will you develop?
We want the graduate programme experience to be really valuable for you, so it certainly won’t be case of you shadowing someone for two years! We want you to do a real job and be an integral part of your team as soon as possible.

By structuring the programme in this way you’ll have a continuous learning experience which will continue to gather momentum throughout the programme.

You’ll get the chance to learn from some of the most experienced professionals in the business and through a programme of workshops and activities you will be encouraged to drive your development in the direction that meets your goals.
