What you’ll experience

Our Summer Internship Programme allows you to work directly on real-world problems, build your business skills, while you take an active role in supporting and driving innovation and create lasting relationships and connections along the way.

Our programme is designed as a pipeline into our Graduate Programme or Straight-to-Desk roles. If you do well, you could get a job offer at the end of the programme.

Learning and growth experience

Throughout the programme you’ll be encouraged to seek feedback that will help you grow and develop your knowledge, skills and experience throughout the internship. 

At the end of the programme, you’ll be evaluated.  Our intention is to help you see where your strengths are and whether there are any opportunities for you to further develop.

We’re looking to identify potential, which means the experience you gain at the Bank could lead to a job offer to join either our Graduate Programme or a Straight-to-Desk role.

For everyone it will be an opportunity to launch your career into financial services.

Who we're looking for?

  • Students from all degree disciplines, in their penultimate year (second to last) or final year of study, in either a bachelor or postgraduate degree.
  • You’ll need to be hard working, resilient when working under pressure, with a drive to learn – it’s your career, you need to seize the opportunities as they come.
  • Adept at building new, strong relationships, we’re one big team, and relationships are how we get things done.
  • You need good communication skills (verbal and written), especially when it comes to understanding, analysing and interpreting data
  • Be curious, have an open mindset, there’s no one way of doing things, and there’s always an opportunity to experiment.
