Our technology hubs
Along with Glasgow, our tech hubs are located in London (at our Canary Wharf headquarters), Northampton and Radbroke Hall in Cheshire.
Our Glasgow hub is a newly created campus, and is the focus for a national team of 2,500 people, offering the latest technology and a superb working environment.
Here we have our own philosophy – ‘Passion with Purpose’.
This creates the foundations for an incredible culture where talent’s free to thrive. If you’re ready to redefine the future of FinTech, you’ll find there’s no limit to what you can do or how far your career can take you.
Join us as an apprentice
Hear more about our Technology apprenticeship programmes from Jenna, a current Higher Apprentice and Security Developer.
She says: “A definite myth that I’ve come across is that being an apprentice means you’d be at the bottom of the barrel and you wouldn’t make much change or have much say. That is a complete myth – it’s ridiculous!
“Everyone views you as a member of the team, and sometimes people view your ideas in a higher regard because they think this person has come in with a fresh pair of eyes.”
