The BBA is now integrated into UK Finance. Please go to www.ukfinance.org.uk for new content and updates from UK Finance.
Material published by BBA prior to 1st July 2017 is still available on this website.
From 1 July 2017, the finance and banking industry operating in the UK will be represented by a new trade association, UK Finance. It will represent around 300 firms in the UK providing credit, banking, markets and payment-related services. The new organisation will take on most of the activities previously carried out by the Asset Based Finance Association, the British Bankers’ Association, the Council of Mortgage Lenders, Financial Fraud Action UK, Payments UK and the UK Cards Association.x
The banking industry isn’t just about finance, there are a truly diverse range of careers within it. From bank staff who help us detect fraud and stamp out financial crime, to those who develop banking apps and new online technology to – of course – traditional investment and retail banking (and much much more!). There really could be something for you, regardless of age and no matter what A levels or interests you have.
We’re pleased to be able to take some of the pain out of searching the internet for openings by bringing as many of these apprenticeships as possible under one roof. So if you’d like a great career with lots of opportunities, why not have a look? There’s nothing to lose.
The banks have supported literally thousands of people of all ages in apprenticeships right across the country from Glasgow down to Bournemouth. The BBA is delighted to pull all of these schemes together to provide the best possible overview of our largest members’ programmes for budding bank apprentices.
What the apprentices say:
“I spoke with someone at school and explained that I didn’t want to go to University and A-levels just weren’t for me. I wanted to find a way into a bank and that way was apprenticeships.” – Jordan, Santander Apprentice
“With the financial services industry, it isn’t a necessity to have a degree and experience within the sector is valued highly. It was for this reason and the fact that I wanted to apply my learning directly in the workplace that I started to look into the apprenticeship route.” – Florence, J.P. Morgan Apprentice
“From day one I was given responsibility I wouldn’t have expected to be given and by the halfway mark was taking the lead on writing reviews for some of our clients. I had a great amount of support from my team and especially my manager.” – Jacob, RBS Apprentice
“Since working here, I always go that one step further. I feel that Barclays has somehow rooted the values in me” – Coral, Barclays Apprentice
“I meet with my mentor every month to discuss step-by-step how to achieve my ambitions. My career goal is to join the Innovation Team and become a Project Manager.” – Cassie, Lloyds Apprentice
