About you

  • To be eligible for this programme you’ll need to be a penultimate year student and be on course to achieving a 2:1/3.4 GPA equivalent in your degree. We encourage applications from a diverse range of degree disciplines including arts, legal, STEM, Quantitative or other fields.
  • You must be available for the full 12 months of the internship, and this programme would suit students looking for a one year industry placement as part of their degree.  
  • We’re looking for passionate people, and innovative thinkers with the drive to succeed.

About the programme

As an intern, you’ll be assigned a home Risk team, whilst at the same time having the opportunity to gain an insight into other Risk areas during your time with us. You’ll learn a mix of practical knowledge and technical skills. 

You’ll learn about our goals, our team culture, and the values underpinning them both. You’ll get involved in some exciting project work and learning about the models and practices we use for managing risk throughout our business.  

We encourage connectivity and mobility across our teams and the wider Group, no matter what desk you sit on, and this is what allows us to stay nimble and innovative.

The internship starts with an induction. Then you’ll start your work placements where you’ll receive training and start getting a real insight into how our business works. 

We’ll pair you up with a ‘buddy’ and a line manager who’ll support you for the full 12 months of the internship. Your buddy will be a current Analyst or Associate who’ll help you get settled by sharing their experience. Your line manager will provide guidance and support throughout the programme, and help you develop your professional network. 

They’ll support you with: 

  • Technical training across our product areas to develop your skills  
  • Building networks  
  • Growing your understanding of banking and risk 
  • Developing  the soft skills needed to be successful 
  • You’ll be rewarded with a competitive salary, and on top of this you’ll also have access to our flexible benefits package.
