DST careers Pudsey

“Before starting my apprenticeship with DST I didn’t have a great understanding of the financial services industry. Completing my NVQ work books and studying for my IOC exams has really helped my knowledge. DST offers a lot of help and assistance with your exams and apprentice work. It is a great place to work especially if you are looking to start a career within the finance industry.”

Lily Brooker | DST Apprentice

"I have learnt a great deal with the hands-on experience DST provides. Not only have I learnt about the financial side of the firm, I have gained skills what will help me further my future career, such as a greater knowledge of how to treat customers in an excellent way. I was really nervous to start - however, one of my favourite parts of the apprenticeship is the people I work with. Everyone is so friendly and makes you feel very welcome."

Izzy Robinson-Carey | DST Apprentice

“Offering an Apprentice scheme is a great way for us to grow talent for the future and also help people without prior experience start their careers.

It is exciting to see such passionate, driven individuals joining the industry.”

Kerri Binks | DST Senior Manager
