There's never been a better time to begin your career. 

We’re passionate about growing the next generation of talent. We'll provide you with opportunities to learn and develop while empowering you to make a difference. Being a part of our Early Talent Programme means working on live projects and gaining real work experience, with coaching and mentoring at every step of your journey. We have opportunities across our whole organisation, in our Branch Network, head office, or sector-leading fintech business, Newcastle Strategic Solutions. We have roles in IT, finance, marketing and so many other business areas. We’d love to help you step into your career and grow your skills and experience.  


Apprenticeships offer the chance to earn while you learn and gain practical experience. They're also a great option if you're looking for a career change. No matter what qualifications you already have, we can work with you to find the right opportunity, from Level 2 to Level 7 qualifications. We offer all our apprentices permanent contracts at the end of their course.

Student Placements

We offer 12-month placements for second-year undergraduate students. You’ll join us in a role suited to your degree, where you’ll gain real working experience in your chosen area. Alongside working on your degree subject, you’ll have the opportunity to work on live projects and contribute your thoughts and ideas to our growing business.

Graduate Programme

We also offer permanent contracts for graduates. You’ll be enrolled on our Early Talent Programme to support you while you settle into your role and begin your career. You could even further your education while on our Graduate Programme, by completing a Level 7 apprenticeship and gaining a master's qualification.

Undergraduate Placements

“My experience of the society's Early Talent Programme has been fantastic. From day one I was provided with an extremely supportive network and a great group of friends who were also new to the business. Through activities within the programme I've been given insights into other areas of the business - an opportunity I wouldn't have had without Early Talent!” 

Martha, Supplier Management Student Placement  

Graduate Programme

“I never imagined how quick my knowledge and confidence would grow at Newcastle Building Society. I have been given amazing opportunities to develop myself, support the team and wider business and never thought I would have so much support both professionally and with my MSc apprenticeship. It is great place to work and they truly value what early talent can offer.”
