Our goal in Commercial Banking

We want to build strong relationships and help UK businesses thrive in an ever-changing world. From entrepreneurial start-ups to FTSE100 customers, we provide comprehensive banking services across a range of UK businesses, including debt financing, transaction services and innovative banking solutions.

Our goal is to be a relationship bank for a digital world - one that supports customers at every stage of their lifecycle through our face-to-face, direct and digital channels.

What's great about the programme?

Every area of our business is different – they each need their own skillsets, their own challenges, their own nuances. Who better to find out what working in a business area is like than from the people who are currently already working there?

Is our Commercial Banking Internship for you?

You’ll have the choice of working in either the Relationship Management or Customer Products & Propositions teams.

If you like the idea of developing an entrepreneurial ecosystem that helps businesses grow, meeting customers and devising solutions for them, then Relationship Management could be the one for you. This is your chance to build insights into key sectors such as Manufacturing, Technology, Construction, and Land Transport and Logistics.

If the sound of focusing on answering the bank’s most important strategic questions, identifying new opportunities, and designing and delivering products and services appeals to you, then Customer Products & Propositions could be more up your street. This is an opportunity to gain experience in product and proposition design and management, including new product development and innovation.

The aim of this eight-week internship is to give you a taste of what it’s like to work here, along with valuable skills and experiences that you’ll bring into your future career.

What you can expect from the programme

  • An understanding of what it's like to work in a purpose led organisation that puts the customer at the heart of decision making
  • Knowledge of our culture, values and goals, and the products and services we provide
  • Considerations on how we work together to deliver an outstanding service for our customers

Where can our Commercial Banking Internship take you?

Support from day one

For the full eight weeks, we’ll pair you with a ‘buddy’ and a line manager, who’ll support you in gaining valuable experience to help guide your career choices.

Make a difference

During the programme, you’ll also work on a Social Impact Project. This’ll help you to develop keys skills covering team working, planning, creative thinking, business plan writing and problem solving – all while contributing to a valuable cause.

A great start to your career

At the end of the placement, we’ll assess you on what you’ve learned. Complete this successfully and you could be offered a place on our 2024 Commercial Banking Graduate Programme, where you can carry the skills you’ve learnt forward and take the next step in your career.
