Summer Internships

Let’s be honest. Summer jobs usually suck.

But thankfully our internship doesn’t. You won’t be pulling pints here. Instead, you’ll be spending six to ten weeks taking real challenges. Experiencing life in a world-class bank. Developing skills that’ll look great on your CV. And possibly even securing a place on our graduate scheme for the following year.

Roll on summer.

You’ll be glowing.
Regardless of the weather.

What’s it all about?

Find out below, from requirements and eligibility, to benefits and the different schemes that we offer.

What’s involved?

Our internships are structured 6-10 week programmes. Each one kicks off with an induction which tells you everything you need to know about our people and processes. 

Once that’s out the way, you’ll immerse yourself in a business area. Interns typically shadow senior-level colleagues, attending meetings and rotating between different areas. It’s likely you’ll be given a project to manage during your time here. This will show us what you’re capable of.

You’ll also network with a lot of people during your internship. Some will be previous graduates and interns, so take the opportunity to ask questions. What’s more, you’ll have the support of a line manager and a buddy along the way.

Last but not least, all our interns get to take part in a charity event to help raise funds for our partner charities.

Who’s it for and why do it?

It’s for students in their penultimate year of university study.

Internships allow you to:

  • Get paid
  • Gain experience
  • Boost your CV
  • Build a network of colleagues

They also give you the opportunity to secure a place on our graduate scheme early. There’s no better feeling going into your final year than knowing you’ve got a full-time role for you waiting at the other end.

What benefits will I get?

As an intern, you’ll receive a salary that’s equivalent to the National Living Wage during your time here.

What’s more, you’ll accrue a bit of paid holiday as well.

What do I need to apply?

Exact requirements will vary between schemes, but typically we look for:

  • Predicted 2:1 degree 
  • Passion for leadership and a collaborative approach to work
  • Strong numeracy and communication skills
  • Confidence to speak up with great ideas and embrace change
