As a Business Admin apprentice, you will provide business and personal support to senior management within NatWest. You will complete administrative tasks that support events and help coordinate activities, manage your assigned leaders diary and emails, and learn more about how relevant business areas interact with the rest of the organisation. The ability to analyse and prioritise information and attention to detail is key in this role. 

 Examples of roles include;
