The bank launched the programme in the summer in a bid to attract more young talent to market.
Graduates will undertake a two year rotational leadership development programme within one of the five following business units: business finance, consumer finance, property finance (commercial and residential mortgages), group risk and group finance.
Emma Cox (pictured), sales director for Shawbrook commercial mortgages said the bank was focused on finding innovative and adaptable graduates that can work across the varied job functions covered by the business.
She added: “We invested heavily into our recruitment drive for this first intake, with a bank-wide programme designed to attract the most talented university graduates of 2016.”
The three new graduate recruits are: Luke Randell, Oliver Porter and Wojciech Babiarczuk.
Randell joins after graduating from the University of Birmingham, where he attained his Masters for history after gaining a Bachelor of Arts degree at York St. John University in the same subject. Porter joins after finishing a Masters in Sports Business Management and a Bachelor of Arts in Sports Development, both at Sheffield Hallam University. Babiarczuk recently graduated with a Law degree from Brunel University London.
Babiarczuk said: “In the short time I’ve been here, I’ve benefited from a structured and encouraging working environment whilst learning rapidly about the bank’s systems and processes.”
Graduates will be placed across the country at one of the bank’s offices in Brentwood, Dorking, London, Manchester and Glasgow.
Cox added: “We have been pleased by the promising start that Luke, Oliver and Wojciech have made to life at Shawbrook, after undergoing a rigorous interview process which highlighted their tenacity and natural talent. It’s now up to them – with the training infrastructure and personalised support we provide on an ongoing basis – to continue their professional development whilst contributing to what we are confident will be a prosperous period of growth for Shawbrook Commercial and our Broker Partners.”
