As an Investors in People silver standard holder, the RCN is committed to your learning and development. We know that equipping our people with the skills they need to be successful in their current roles, and throughout their careers, is vitally important; and we will ensure that you have the opportunity to grow from day one, whichever area you choose to work in.

Our advertised roles may also be available on an secondment basis, which are a great way to develop new skills, knowledge and experiences and strengthen current skills by applying them in a new area. If this interests you, contact the hiring manager and talk to your own line manager. 

DevelopmentWhen you join us, you’ll have a tailored induction plan, starting with our Onboard programme, which will not only introduce you to the organisation but also ensure that you have the full range of skills required to deliver on your potential. We will talk regularly about how you’re feeling in your work and the part you want to play as our organisation grows, providing training and support to help you to develop additional skills and experience along the way.

We’ll give you a range of valuable, personal and technical skills, together with quality coaching support, where you’ll be given the opportunity to have someone to bounce ideas off.

From apprentice to senior manager, we will focus your learning and support you through our development frameworks. We will help you to grow your ambitions and build your career through our first-class management development and future leadership programmes.

If you’re on the path to a professional qualification, we’ll support you through our Development Funding Programme. We’ll support you financially through your exams and help you prepare fully with study leave. Plus you can enjoy widespread support, from mentors to shared learning with your peers.

Longer term, you’ll have the chance to try new things too. You might work in different teams and offices; experience different customers and projects; or try out new roles and even other business areas through an experiential placement.

All in all, we will give you the opportunity to make your mark and achieve your personal goals while making your contribution to help us attain our business goals.
