RBS Comeback Programme
Royal Bank of Scotland is looking for you to join their 2018 Comeback Programme, in partnership with Women Returners as part of the cross company Returners to Financial Services Scotland Programme funded by the Scottish Government. RBS is offering paid work placements in the Services Technology business, giving you the chance to bring your experience right up to date as well as experience useful coaching and an array of networking opportunities. The placements are in Edinburgh, based at their prestigious Gogarburn campus.
The opportunities are based within Technology and Change – an incredibly varied and busy area of their 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 technology business, this 3 month paid returnship in April 2018 will highlight a wealth of potential opportunities, and may lead to the opportunity to apply for a permanent role.
RBS is looking for you to get some hands-on experience, in a business responsible for transforming their ways of working across the Bank. You’ll lead or manage one or more initiatives which support the technology programmes for the entire bank. Their goal is to enable RBS to continuously learn and adapt so that they can delight their customers through delivering a customer experience that exceeds their expectations. The RBS change practice is beginning a journey to a more agile way of working.
