Career Development

About Us

We’re committed to investing in our people and their talent.

We want you to have a fulfilling career with us, so it’s important you have the right skills and knowledge to do well in your role and advance in your career.

From the day you join us, we’ll give you access to learning and development options provided by our Academy – giving you the skills you need to serve our customers and communities well.

“I believe that everyone working in Ulster Bank has ownership over their own development and career. I’m a strong advocate of the 70:20:10 model of learning, where 70% of the learning you do is experiential or on the job, 20% is through coaching and mentoring and 10% is formal learning. What we try to do in the Academy is to bring a range of development options to people to help support that 10% and to encourage them to do more in the experiential, coaching and mentoring categories”.

Joyce Walsh – Head of Ulster Bank Academy

Fit your learning around you

We offer a range of learning styles – from classroom and webinars, to e-learning and professional qualifications. And through our annual career development events, and dedicated portals, we’ll help you manage key stages of your learning and development journey.

We’re fully dedicated to helping you in your studies through funding, study leave and other study supports through our New Horizons initiative. New Horizons helps us create a culture for continuous learning so we can meet the needs of an ever-changing industry, the requirements of regulation and the needs of our customers.

We’re proud that our culture has been recognised through our award for Best Overall Learning and Development Organisation at the 2016 IITD National Training Awards.

We want you to have the confidence to make the most of every opportunity. So, whatever you want to do, and however you want to learn, we’ll help you to take your career to the next level.
