What else you need to know

An Apprenticeship is a development programme. At NatWest we offer apprenticeship programmes for candidates who have little or no qualifications or experience in the subject of study.

If you have substantial experience or qualifications in the apprenticeship subject, you may be overqualified and not meet the programme criteria. Please make sure you have checked the FAQs before applying to ensure you meet the requirements.


It would be ideal if you can provide evidence of your grade A-C or Level 4, Maths and English GCSE or equivalent results, but this is not necessary to start with us as an apprentice. If you didn't manage to achieve the desired grades or cannot provide evidence of your qualifications, then we'll help you to attain them during your apprenticeship.

You'll join on a competitive salary of between £23,940 and in addition you'll receive money to help you save for retirement. You can choose from a range of protection, healthcare or lifestyle benefits from NatWest Group Benefits, our fully flexible reward programme.
