Global Liquidity and Cash Management Graduate Programme

Whether you are studying a finance, science or art-related degree, your skills can translate to the fast-paced and international world of Global Liquidity and Cash Management. We’ll support your development in every way.

For: Final-year student or recent graduate
Duration: Two years
Areas: Global Banking and Markets – Global Liquidity and Cash Management


On our competitively paid two-year graduate programme, you will complete four rotations, each lasting six months, across our entire Global Liquidity and Cash Management (GLCM) business.

What you can expect

You will explore various parts of GLCM through four rotations. We will give you exposure to our global network where you will work with people from all over the world who are always willing to be challenged and answer your questions. We are fully invested in you and your development, helping you to navigate the many opportunities to develop the career that’s right for you. We will teach you about capital management optimisation, surplus cash management, optimising interest earnings, global payables and everything in between. We will give you responsibility from day one, encouraging you to drive new internal initiatives, present to colleagues and clients, and work with our colleagues across the globe.

What you will do

GLCM helps our customers do business by supporting them in managing their operating cash flows more efficiently, with greater security and lower risk. We help customers make smarter and faster business decisions. Our graduate programme gives you broad exposure to smaller businesses and multinationals alike, offering ideas for cash flow improvement and capital optimisation. You will build expertise in product, e-commerce, client management, business management, sales and business risk control management.

With its global reach, GLCM offers the opportunity to apply for an international rotation, to learn to adapt to new environments and apply your skills to new projects. This is a great opportunity to learn about how our business operates on a worldwide scale.

Who does this suit?

We are looking for dedicated, courageous and curious people who are:

  • Active listeners. You will work with a number of different teams on exciting initiatives, so being able to listen to those around you, then quickly absorb information and contribute to discussions will help you deliver projects
  • Strategic networkers. Collaborating with clients, senior management, peers and our other international teams means you need confidence communicating across different cultures and seniority levels. It’s just as important as developing the ability to form trusted relationships internally and externally and to propose new solutions
  • Creative thinkers. You will be involved with projects from start to finish, and will sometimes contribute on an ad hoc basis, so you will need to be able to think quickly and creatively about each stage of an idea. Being motivated and prepared to plan for different outcomes is also key so you can deliver the right one, in a timely manner
  • Fast learners. You will work with new people on constantly evolving projects covering a range of desirable outcomes; cost savings, customer satisfaction, risk mitigation, revenue generation etc. Being able to quickly digest information, and understand your contribution to the overall outcome, will be key

What can this lead to?

Your experience on this graduate programme will equip you to become a specialist in your favourite area such as sales or products. You will not only have the opportunity to make your mark in the role, but also to work in a way that suits you. There is the flexibility to explore your interests within your field and the chance to progress into a leadership role locally or internationally.
