As an intern, in the summer before your final year as a student, you'll work directly on real world problems to hone your skills, create lasting relationships and learn about your strengths. The Formal Internship Programme is intended to create a pipeline to the International Graduate Programme.
Internships is a 10-week program, depending on location, and are open to candidates who are available to start on our full-time graduate programmes in September 2020.
Internships typically take place during June – August, depending on location.
10-week program will involve on-the-job training and an innovation project which exposes you to the inner workings of our business to provide real work experience.
You’ll be paired up with a buddy from the International Graduate (IG) Programme and to set you up for success during your internship and provide you insights into what could be your next role as an IG.
You’ll be assigned a mentor whom will provide you with ongoing guidance and mentorship throughout the internship.
High performing Interns will be eligible for placement in the Bank’s International Graduate Programme.
