SUMMER INTERNSHIPS

Duration: 10 weeks

Open to: Second-year university students (or third year students if you're on a four-year course)

Whether you see yourself in Global Corporate and Investment Banking, Global Markets or Corporate Functions, this is a chance for you to immerse yourself within our global firm. Over ten weeks, you’ll learn the ins and outs of what we do and discover where you might want to take your career. To help you explore what’s possible, the internship begins with a week’s technical training – allowing you to gain an in-depth understanding of the products and markets we operate in.

Armed with your new knowledge, you’ll then experience what it’s like to work in two different business areas. Expect to get involved in real tasks and projects, with plenty of  opportunities to showcase your potential and make connections across the firm. After all, growing your personal network is a huge part of the internship experience. And you’ll find that in our inclusive and friendly offices, it’s not that difficult to do.

As part of a select intake, you’ll learn from some of the best professionals in the industry.  In addition to your line manager, you’ll also be allocated a buddy to make sure you have all the support you need to get the most out of the programme. The impact? You’ll never get lost in the crowd.

Our summer internship is a proven route into our analyst programme. So if you impress us and successfully complete your internship, you may receive a full-time analyst job offer.
