Banking & Financial Services

Enabling the financial services sector to recruit, develop and retain talent through tailored, innovative training programmes including short courses and apprenticeships.

How can we help?

We know that some of the best talent is already employed by you. We’ll work alongside you to help you upskill your employees to ensure they have a career trajectory that suits them and you and enable you to get the best out of your staff.

Employees require continual development and evolution both to meet your business needs and to remain compliant in the ever-evolving world of financial services. Our career development apprenticeships enable your colleagues to build expert knowledge, skills, and behaviours in their field, regardless of whether they’re currently in a role and looking for additional training to become an expert or are looking to shift into a new specialism.

From Financial Services Customer Service to Mortgage Advisory and everything in between, our financial services and banking apprenticeships have been developed to allow for real flexibility, making them adaptable for your organisation’s specific culture and needs, with training, assessment, and delivery methods customised to match your company so that our training is essentially an extension of your in-house function.

Our training and development team are also banking experts, having previously all worked in industry with leading banks across England. We look to work as if we are your internal employee development programmes, or an extension of what you currently do. We work with you to develop and upskill your employees and enable them to become future leaders, providing one-to-one support; our coaches see this as core to their role.

Upskilling your employees may also enhance your business performance, increase productivity and enable you to gain a competitve advantage.

Strategic development of your future leaders enables your business not only to harness talent within the organisation, but also retain ambitious colleagues seeking a career trajectory. We will work with you to map your employee’s development goals with apprenticeship pathways, enabling them to achieve their life goals while remaining in your business, saving you time, resource and cost in recruiting replacements.

Our deep connections across the country and within local communities provide access to several sources of untapped talent for your business. We know where to find and how to attract the best people in each area to join and improve your team. We provide an expert recruitment service to your business, completely free of charge, to find your future financial services apprentices.

With specialist apprenticeships in financial services customer support and mortgage advisory, along with a variety of business support apprenticeships, we’re perfectly positioned to enable your business to bridge its skills gaps and attract local talent not only to join your business, but to have a career development map to ensure they stay with you long term. We can individually tailor our curriculum to support the needs of your business, allowing your staff to focus on what really matters.
