Our graduate programme offers the chance to develop a career at the heart of the UK economy. But it’s not all about economics. Our programme is open to applicants from all disciplines, and has a real focus on personal development.

No matter where you work in the Bank, your role will be unique. You will be asked to apply for one of the following streams:


This is our generalist scheme, and is open to Graduates from any degree discipline. This stream opens up opportunities in many areas across the Bank, including Banking, Markets, Notes and Central Services.


If you’re studying an Economics or Finance undergraduate degree then this is the stream for you. Here you’ll have a chance to develop your skills at the heart of the UK economy.


This stream develops Graduates to provide technical expertise in areas such as stress testing, the Help to Buy scheme, or wider market risks. They work within areas such as Supervisory Risk Specialists. Great analytical skills are key for this stream.


These roles are vital for collecting, compiling and analysing data for publication. We look for students studying a quantitative degree, such as Maths or Engineering. These roles are in areas such as Advanced Analytics, Data and Statistics Division and the Chief Data Office.


The Technology division enables everything we do at the Bank, including supporting systems like the Real-Time Gross Settlement (RTGS), enabling the UK financial services sector to transfer trillions of pounds in payment transactions every year. You don’t have to be studying a Computer Science degree – we are also looking for students with an interest in Technology. Based on your interests and skillset, you will be matched to a pathway, such as: Developer, Infrastructure, Service Management or IT Security.


Open to Graduates from any degree discipline, you’ll be at the heart of the Bank’s work to protect the stability of the UK’s financial system by supervising financial institutions. You could be supervising insurance companies, international banks, building societies, key financial infrastructure or UK banks of all sizes. Supervision puts your analytical, problem solving and professional skills into practice; you will work closely with senior internal and external stakeholders to identify and mitigate potential risks before they can have an adverse effect on the financial system and the public.


If you are studying for a Masters degree in an Economics or Finance discipline and are looking for a Graduate position, this is the stream for you. These roles are in research-focused areas such as Monetary Analysis, International or Markets.
