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. What better way to find out what working in a business area is like, than from the people who are already working there?

Is the programme for you?

Does the idea of gaining experience across a wide range of customers and business areas to find which areas suit you best excite you? Are you the sort of person who likes to be challenged while contributing to important work? Our Financing Solutions Internship programme could be for you.

This is an opportunity to contribute to credit papers, financial models and pitches, and work on some of the most high-profile debt transactions across Europe. This is your chance to get an insight into product development and digital banking.

Where can our programme take you?

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.
