About the business

In Risk, our role is to make sure we’re doing the right thing as an organisation, for our people and our customers. Risk management allows us to strike a balance between taking risks and reducing them.

It’s our responsibility to manage risk across the bank, ensuring we have the right culture, strategy and rules in place. We also manage interactions with key regulators, providing trusted advice and challenge to the colleagues who serve our customers.

About the programme

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

We’ll reward you with a salary of £21,500 pro rata.

The programme starts with an induction, where you’ll learn about the bank, meet your fellow interns, and get the chance to talk with colleagues from around our business.

You’ll then begin a unique eight week placement, where you’ll get involved with our live day to day work, and take part in a business project. This will give you the opportunity to complete research on a topic and come up with recommendations for improvement or change to support our ambitions.

During the programme, you’ll also work on a social impact project. This will 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.

For the full eight weeks, we’ll pair you with a ‘buddy’ and a line manager, who’ll help you grow your network and provide guidance and support.

At the end of the placement, we’ll assess you on what you’ve learned. Complete this successfully, and you’ll be offered a place on our 2022 Risk graduate programme, where you’ll carry the skills you’ve learned from your internship forward, taking the next exciting step in your career.
