About the Contact Centre Roles

You’ll be the first point of support for NatWest Group’s personal banking customers in one of the bank’s telephony banking teams. The bank will look to you to deliver excellent service to its customers, keeping their needs and financial goals in mind at all times. You’ll be educating customers in the different ways they can do their banking and supporting them in choosing the options that work best for them. In this role you’ll be applying your customer service expertise when dealing with and referring customer queries. Whether it’s carrying out day-to-day banking transactions like paying bills, or helping customers identify products and services that are right for them, you’ll be on the other end of the phone to take their calls. You’ll need to be flexible and work a rotating shift pattern. Your hours of work will be between the hours of 7am and 9pm Monday to Sunday. You’ll be required to work 2 in 3 weekends and bank holiday working is a feature of this role.

NatWest Group will discuss your hours in more detail during the interview stage.

Eligibility Criteria:

We are looking for young people aged 16- 24 who are passionate about building a career in customer experience in the Contact Centre telephony and complaints teams at NatWest Group. You don’t need previous experience, but you do need to show evidence of a genuine interest in the sector.

Age Range: 16-24 years old

Educated at a state school

You may have been entitled to Free School Meals or Pupil Premium at some point in your education (English schools)

We are looking for young people with a passion for learning and helping customers have the best experience. There is no minimum academic criteria although Maths and English GCSE in England and Northern Ireland, or National 5 qualifications in Scotland would be an advantage

It would be ideal if you can provide evidence of your grade A-C or Level 4, Maths and English GCSE or equivalent results, but this is not essential. If you didn’t manage to achieve the grades or can’t provide evidence of your qualifications, NatWest Group will help you to obtain them during your apprenticeship.

Dedication and passion for helping customers is vital. You’ll be a real people person, with excellent listening and communication skills.

We’re also looking for you to demonstrate:

  • The determination to go the extra mile for customers every day to provide that truly personal service
  • Great listening skills to understand the needs of the customer, along with the ability to empathise with your customer’s situation and remain calm under pressure
  • The ability to handle large volumes of calls and achieve quality results while maintaining high levels of detail
  • Good numerical and organisational skills
