We’re a business that understands when our customers and people succeed, our communities succeed, and our economy thrives. As part of our purpose, we’re looking at how we can drive change for our communities in enterprise, learning and climate.
As one of the leading supporters of UK business, we’re prioritising enterprise as a force of change. We’re focusing on the people and communities who have traditionally faced the highest barriers to entry and figuring out ways to remove these.
Learning is also key to our continued growth as a company in an ever changing and increasingly digital world. By setting a dynamic and leading learning culture, our people prosper, and our customers are given the tools to continue to improve their financial capability and confidence.
One of the biggest challenges we all face in our future is climate change. That’s why we’ve put it right at the core of our purpose. We want to champion climate solutions with financing and entrepreneurial support, fully embed climate into our culture and decision making, and be climate positive by 2025.
We’re committed to using our purpose to break down barriers, drive change and ultimately create a great place to work.

Articles about NatWest:
We’re building a relationship bank for a digital age. Our customers expect to be able to interact with us in person, or by using technology.
That freedom carries on to our colleagues. We offer different types of working arrangements to allow the best in collaboration, and to give flexibility where it’s needed.
Some of these arrangements depend on the type of job you do, and some of them depend on you and the type of flexibility you need.
Where will I be working?
With the range of jobs in our business, there’s no such thing as one-size-fits all. So we’ve developed a simple framework with three categories.
Speak to your hiring manager to find out which one fits the job you’re applying to.
Remote first: You’ll spend most of your time at home, working with your team digitally. You’ll come into an office or hub when you need to collaborate closely with colleagues, which we’ll expect to be at least twice a month.
Hybrid: You’ll work from home some of the time, but you’ll also spend a significant amount of time working from an office or hub. In most cases you’ll be on site so you can connect with and serve customers, or meet clients. Branch jobs sit in this category.
Office first: If you’re in an office first job, most of your time will be spent on site at one of our offices, hubs, or centres. This will be either because you need to be physically on site – for example in a cash or data centre – or because of regulations that affect your job, such as if you’re a trader.
Whether you’re a parent, a carer, a student, or just have a busy lifestyle, we know it’s not always easy to commit to standard working hours. So we offer a range of flexible working arrangements that will let you balance your life between home and work.
Note that in some jobs, we might not be able to offer flexible hours for business reasons. We’ll always accommodate flexible working where we can, so speak to your hiring manager or recruiter about which options work for you and for us.
