RBS is offering 6 Software Developer apprenticeship roles in Edinburgh to young people who successfully complete a three week pre-employment bootcamp of personal and professional development with social mobility charity, Leadership Through Sport & Business. LTSB prepares and supports bright young people from disadvantaged backgrounds into meaningful work with major firms.
Royal Bank of Scotland is building a purpose-led bank. Its purpose will create longer-term, deeper relationships with its customers – when its customers succeed, its communities succeed, its economy thrives – and the bank succeeds as a result. RBS is putting purpose at the core of everything it does – doing so will create a sustainable and resilient long-term future.
Working with social mobility charity, Leadership Through Sport & Business (LTSB), RBS is expanding a successful pilot it launched in 2019. The bank is seeking diverse young people to help make sure it represents the communities it serves. LTSB prepares and supports bright young people from disadvantaged backgrounds into meaningful work with major firms. This programme is about making sure young people who wouldn’t normally get the chance to work in such a large firm are clear, capable and motivated about the opportunities RBS offers. Successful candidates take part in a three week pre-employment bootcamp of personal and professional development.
RBS has a number of offices based in and around Edinburgh city centre, including Princes Street and St Andrew Square – which is its registered head office. Its headquarters are based just outside the city on Gogarburn campus, where many of its central and support functions are based. The campus comprises office space, a 300 seat conference centre and a business school. There's an excellent range of retail and leisure facilities on site, including a book shop, hair salon and a small supermarket on the covered ‘street’ in the heart of the main building. There are also street stalls who visit the site on a rotating basis once a week. Whatever you need to do or buy, you’ll be able to here.
