At YBS we’ve always been passionate about doing the right thing for our customers as well as our people. Whatever part of the business you join, an apprenticeship at YBS is all about giving you the rounded skills and experience you need to develop a brilliant career in a changing and exciting business. We’ll give you the skills you need to be yourself and the best you can be.

As an apprentice at YBS you’ll work across multiple teams and projects, allowing you to gain a wide range of experience and learn about your own strengths and styles from different people. We’ll help you back this up with practical skills too, offering training and support in the everyday business fundamentals like project management, understanding how we run our business finances or presentation skills.

We understand that starting a new job in a large business can be daunting so when you start here, you’ll be assigned a mentor to offer day-to-day support, no matter what you’re working on. Your mentor will always welcome those questions that you don’t even know you have yet. Not only this but you’ll also be sponsored by one of our directors who you’ll meet with regularly to help provide insight and direction on your career path. We’ll help you become a leader of the future through guidance from our leaders of the present.

Working in Risk, Compliance and Audit you’ll learn about… 

  • How we protect our customers and colleagues from risks, both identifying potential threats and how we can work together to resolve them.

  • What mechanisms we have in place to ensure that YBS comply with the requirements placed on us by the regulator, supporting teams across the business to ensure they also comply.

  • How we update and change the way we work to improve how we respond to issues and threats, improving processes to reduce risks in the future.

We have two main office sites in Bradford and Leeds, please note that this role could be based in either site with travel as required between both.


Life at YBS

In addition to the usual benefits such as competitive salary, annual bonus and healthcare packages we offer you…

Flexibility – Whether it’s picking up the kids from school or catching that early morning yoga session we have you covered.

Celebrating Success – From everyday thank you cards, to our annual ‘Raising the Roof’ gala to celebrate our golden ticket winners we acknowledge our colleagues successes no matter how big or small.

Giving Back – Fancy 31 hours of paid leave a year to get involved in community activities? Together last year, we completed more than 11,000 hours of volunteering!

Inclusivity - We don’t just accept difference — we celebrate it, we support it, and we thrive on it for the benefit of our colleagues, our customers and our community. We are proud to be an equal opportunities employer.

Site Perks – Some of our sites have added little extras such as a gym, restaurant and free parking at our Bradford site, roof garden in Leeds, and on-site restaurant and free parking at our Peterborough site.


At YBS we’re big enough to challenge you, but small enough for you to make a real impact. Join our talent pool today to found out more about how you can become You Brilliant Self.
