Nationwide is investing over £4billion in growth and transformation so it’s never been a more exciting time to join. We are currently recruiting for specialist roles within Software Engineering, Cyber Security, Data and Analytics, Infrastructure Development and IT Operations.

In turn, we’ll reward you with flexible working, a competitive salary and a workplace culture to be proud of.

Who we're looking for

People who want to develop a career in IT, and have the passion and determination to grow, develop and learn. We’re more interested in your ambition, curiosity and ability to think logically than your education, so you could be a recent grad or a career changer.

  • Can pay attention to detail while understanding the bigger picture
  • Are a natural problem solver
  • Can build and maintain strong working relationships

We’ll work with you to find the best area suited to your skills, interests and potential. You could be working on any of the below:

  • Dealing with the Cyber Security opportunities and challenges presented by Open Banking, Cloud-based services and new technologies
  • Enhancing user experience, dealing with live incidents and supporting on going innovation in Software Engineering
  • Working with Data and Analytics, which underpins our refreshed strategy and represents an important opportunity for continued growth.
  • Improving your coding skills or learning from scratch in order to continually improve our service and build new applications.

The world of financial technology is changing; smart about what we invest in, aware that innovation is the only way to protect and serve the financial needs of our 15 million members in an ever-evolving market. We’re on the brink of something big. Which is why we’re looking for technically minded talent to help us reshape the way technology is defined in the financial world.
