Application Process

Our Advice for Applying to our Internships and Graduate programmes
Looking for some top tips before you apply to our Internship or Graduate programmes? Our Grads Hootan and John share their advice.

We want you to show yourself at your best. Our application process lets you do that. We’re thorough, so there are a few stages involved. But they’re all designed to make sure that, from your first day on the job, you’re where you’re supposed to be.

Application process for all roles

Please be advised that you’ll only be able to work from the country where the role is based (i.e. your employing country). We're unable to support international remote working because of the complex rules and regulations associated with cross border working.

1. Applying for a job

Take a good look through the opportunities available, and decide what’s right for you. Once you’ve find the ideal job, click the 'Apply online now' button.

2. Online assessment

After you’ve uploaded your CV we’ll ask you to fill out a few questions to make sure you meet our criteria. It’s simple and quick.

In some cases you’ll also answer a motivational questionnaire to explore the type of work you enjoy. This helps us make sure that job will be right for you, but there are no right answers, so it’s best to answer honestly.

Video assessment

For some jobs you’ll also complete a video interview by filming yourself answering questions. You can film yourself through your webcam, or by using a smartphone or tablet. We use a simple platform and we’ll guide you through the whole process, including giving you hints and tips on how to make a great video, and what to talk about in your answer.

3. The interview

Once you’ve passed any assessments at the last stage, we’ll look at your experience and your skills to see how well they match to the job. If we agree that you’re a good fit, we’ll invite you to an interview.

Every job at NatWest Group is assessed against the same personal qualities, chosen because we know we need them to succeed into the future. We call them our Critical People Capabilities.

Improver Innovator

You bring and push forward new ideas, ways of working, and improvements for customers. You learn from experience, are digitally focused and make the most of technology.

Change Ready

You embrace change, and are comfortable working with ambiguity. You’re resilient, adaptable, curious, and open to learning. And you can work at pace when needed.

Critical Thinker

You understand the bigger picture, using information, data and insight to solve problems and make decisions. You have great attention to detail, and make the complex simple.


You’re a natural collaborator who works across boundaries and brings teams together, including from different parts of the business. You share knowledge, value difference, and promote fairness.

Trusted Advisor

You’re credible and knowledgeable in your field, keeping up to date and bringing in outside thinking. You create trusted relationships built on warmth, empathy and emotional intelligence.

4. Receiving an offer

We’ll let you know our decision as soon as possible after your interview.

If we make you an offer a recruiter will be in touch to talk you through everything you need to know. We’ll do some pre-employment checks on the information you’ve given us, like your address history. Once that’s all in order, we’ll bring you aboard and get you started.
