Below are the top choices for apprenticeships that pay the most from the start, allowing you to jumpstart your life and your savings.
Apprenticeship in Corporate Banking at Santander – £23K
This Santander corporate banking apprenticeship provides a starting wage that many recent university graduates would appreciate.
You will acquire all the skills needed to manage a corporate client portfolio and advance your banking industry career over this level 6 apprenticeship. Along the process, you will also get a financial services professional qualification.
Apprenticeships in finance and banking provide many opportunities for competitive starting salaries and fast development; other high-paying providers in this area include Lloyds and Barclays.
Work in the Civil Service ONS – Fast Track – £22k
The Civil Service would not have been our first option while looking for high-paying employment. The Civil Service Fast Stream, on the other hand, is an award-winning programme that assists apprentices and graduates in gaining employment in the Civil Service, and one of the ways they have been able to do so is by providing competitive starting salaries.
The fast track provides 15 options, each with good starting pay and room for advancement. In addition, positions at the Office of National Statistics offer good opportunities for training and advancement.
Accountancy Apprenticeship at EY – £21,750
We’re back in finance, but this time in the fast-paced corporate accounting and auditing world. Ernst Young (EY), one of the Big Four accounting companies, provides a range of apprenticeships beginning at under £22k. Three programmes will get you started on the road to financial independence: assurance, tax, and transactions.
EY offers (or at least publicly advertises) the best starting salary of the big four accounting firms, but given the unmatched potential for fast advancement inside these massive accounting firms, you’d be smart to also check into programmes from the other three: Deloitte, PWC, and KPMG are a few examples.
Apprenticeship in Royal Mail Logistics – £20,000
Royal Mail delivers about 14 billion letters each year, and they are willing to give you a reasonable wage to help them do it more efficiently. Apprenticeships in logistics at Royal Mail start at £20,000 per year. Even better, they are degree apprenticeships, meaning you will earn money and receive a degree for free.
