  • The opportunities are based in the NatWest Markets Chief Operating Office – an incredibly varied and busy area of our business – and are designed to provide a work environment that enables you to balance a successful career with family life
  • By placing you at the forefront of the NatWest Markets business, the 12 week paid returnship in September 2017 will highlight a wealth of potential opportunities, and may lead to the offer of a permanent role

What you'll do

This returnship will allow you to get back to a hands-on role, leading and managing one or more initiatives which support the NatWest Markets Transformation or Operating Model programmes. You'll fulfil the role of a project manager or business analyst, and will deliver the end state journey related to cost, control, regulations and organisational excellence. Possible initiatives could include working with:

  • The Head of Customer Experience to perform operating model review and design on front-to-back customer lifecycle processes

  • Future-State Business Model

As part of the Comeback Programme you'll be supported with a range of training opportunities, as well as personalised and group coaching and seminars. You will have a dedicated mentor during the programme, and will have the opportunity to join networking events led by our employee-led networks to gain exposure to senior leaders and broaden your internal connections.

The skills you'll need

To be eligible for the 2017 NatWest Markets Comeback Programme, you must have been on a career break for at least two full years by September 2017. Prior to your career break you will have gained:

  • Experience working in financial services or in a relevant field, as a functional expert or as a manager or team leader at Vice President level or higher

You'll have strong analytical and technical skills, and will be able to understand complex topics. We'll also expect a proven history of working collaboratively with stakeholders, particularly in senior management. You should be able to prioritise your workload, and will show a willingness to embrace new ways of working while incorporating what you already know. You'll need to be a proactive quick-thinker who has excellent problem solving capabilities, and who is prepared to ask the right questions. We're also looking for people who have high levels of motivation, and are keen to meet a new challenge and hit the ground running.
