Learning and Development

Supporting you to be the best you can be


At Sainsbury's Bank we know that our colleagues are the key to our success. We promote a culture of development and encourage all colleagues to take ownership of their learning so they can reach their potential.

Developing our colleagues so they have the right skills, knowledge and behaviours to undertake their roles not only supports their career aspirations but also helps us build and grow our Bank.

A warm welcome


When you join Sainsbury’s Bank you’ll take part in our Welcome Programme where you’ll spend time getting to know our culture, history and links with the Sainsbury’s group, and get an insight into how we work to support our customers.

On the job coaching


All colleagues agree performance goals and a personal development plan with their line manager. Goals are reviewed regularly at 1 to 1 meetings, and tracked through our LINK performance process. Our WIN feedback model is used to support you perform at your best. Straightforward in-the-moment feedback is at the heart of great performance, and will become part of your everyday interactions.

There is always somewhere to go and a way to get there


Our Learning and Development team supports our colleagues to develop their skills and knowledge to perform at their very best.

Our key routes of development are:

  • On-the-job learning, such as mentoring programmes, job shadowing, masterclasses and workshops
  • Apprenticeships in a range of topics such as Data Analysis, HR and Business Management
  • Technical training, for example SAS, SQL, and risk management
  • Professional qualifications with recognised providers and universities

Online learning


Our online learning management system hosts a variety of behavioural and technical training to support your personal development. From our mandatory learning modules, to books, webinars, videos and podcasts, you can choose how and when you want to develop.
