Dankse Bank and Ulster University are inviting new applications for a unique apprenticeship programme that offers school leavers the opportunity to get paid work experience in the banking sector while studying for a degree.
First launched last autumn, Danske Futures is a three-year higher-level apprenticeship programme for students who have completed their A-Levels.
Ten new apprentices will take up a role within Danske’s Personal Banking and Small Business team or Operations team, while studying part-time for a fully funded BSc Hons degree in Managing the Customer Contact.
HR Director at Danske Bank, Caroline van der Feltz said the programme presents a unique opportunity. She explained: “By enabling students to earn money and gain valuable experience while studying for a fully-funded degree, Danske Futures provides a fantastic opportunity for ambitious young people to get ahead in their career. We’re delighted to support some of Northern Ireland’s brightest young talent to achieve their full potential, and it benefits us by bringing new skills and fresh ideas to our business.”
