Rebecca Ashworth, an RBS apprentice who will be working in Commercial and Private Banking said:
“An RBS apprenticeship is a huge opportunity for me to broaden my skills and experience and kick-start my career, so I’m thrilled to have joined. I’m excited to learn about how the bank works and the role we play in helping customers and businesses achieve their goals.”
Commenting, Ross McEwan, RBS CEO said:
“I’m delighted to welcome so many new faces to RBS today through our apprenticeship scheme and I’m confident their dynamism, values and fresh perspective will make a huge contribution as we look to build a bank focused on customer service. Traditionally, young people often came to RBS having graduated and while we want to still encourage that, we think we can tap into a whole new pool of talent through offering apprenticeships right across the country.”
Skills Minister Nick Boles said:
“Apprenticeships in modern exciting sectors like film and financial services are helping talented young people lay the foundations to a rewarding career path. With employers like RBS investing in apprenticeships, we are on course to deliver 3 million apprenticeships by 2020.”
