Work Experience Placement (Former Employee) – Sydenham – September 22, 2016
A typical day at work for me at Natwest Bank was helping out by storing cheques into the Natwest system and helping out and observing how money in the bank was looked after and how morgages and loans were carried out. I got on well with my co-workers it was a very different experience compared to the frame shop. Everything was a lot more strict and secure as its a bank not a retail shop.
Mortgage Advisor (Former Employee) – Birmingham – July 22, 2016
This company is good for getting you though initial training if you need any qualifications. Don't bank on staying there. I worked on a team in Birmingham as a mortgage advisor and was subject to intense discrimination by my manager. She continuously told me that she's going to look for a way to kick me out and the workload she give me was horrendous. She hated gay people... Very openly told me this when I had no witnesses.
Keep away from this company if you can avoid it. Looks good on the initial approach but soon becomes one of the most terrifying places to work. They don't care about you, numbers and everything and "sales targets" also known as "helps" are not achievable. There are mass redundancies and the company is headed for a very dark place.
Bad management, no future, pressure discrimination
Team Leader (Current Employee) – Business Banking Customer Support – October 4, 2015
A busy day managing a team of support assistants to serve our customers in the most efficient way to benefit their needs on a day to day basis. Challenges fall within the time management of certain jobs within the office and deadlines to meet. Most enjoyable part of the job is working in a team environment and succeeding together. Happy workforce produces the best results.
RBS Specialist Banking (Current Employee) – South West London – April 12, 2016
I have been a loyal employee to Natwest/RBS for a period of over four years. There are many opportunities to better yourself and your team when you approach the right people.
A lot of support has been given to me whenever required and I have been fortunate enough to learn and develop myself through my peers and seniors.
Unfortunately through recent cuts in employment, my role has entirely been displaced, and job security in NatWest has been an ever more worrying factor to other colleagues for some time.
This however has pushed me into finding a role I am more suited to. I was not able to express my full potential in my previous position and believe now is the right time for me to take on a new challenge.
Relationship Manager (Current Employee) – London – February 11, 2016
My role is to work with local business to provide them with financial and non financial products to directly impact their business. These help them grow and move into new markets. My job allows me to manage my own diary to provide maximum support to my customers but also give me an excellent work/life balance. I have learned key skills of working within teams, leading teams, networking and promoting my role and bank to the external market.
Admin Assistant (Former Employee) – London – August 24, 2016
I learnt that at a working environment you dont have a set day routine , and your day to day activities can change depending on circumstance . So it is good to stay on your feet and take on every obstacle as it comes. My co-workers were extremely helpful and managed to integrate me into ther team.
Professional with a full understanding of its social responsibility and indebtedness to society.

Senior Personal Banker (Current Employee) – Kent – August 9, 2016
Salary isn't too bad in comparison with other organisations, but work life balance is sometimes compromised. Working with the public is enjoyable, but there is a lack of progression within Retail Banking.
Protection Consultant (Current Employee) – Reading – June 2, 2016
I have thoroughly enjoyed working for Natwest and I have learnt so much. I have had a lot of fun and have grown immensely. It is time for me to delve into a new challenge and grow even further by taking my experience and skills and putting my efforts into something new.
