Retail Banking and Wealth Management Internship

Regardless of which subject you’re studying, we’ll help you to adapt your skills during our Retail Banking and Wealth Management Internship – and perhaps discover some you didn’t realise you had. You will gain an insight into how we work and explore the roles that appeal to you.

For: Penultimate-year student
Duration: Minimum of eight weeks
Areas: Retail Banking and Wealth Management

Overview

On our competitively paid internship, you will spend a minimum of eight weeks (depending on location) learning how we serve our customers in one of our branches or contact centres. You’ll also get the chance to take on a role in a specialist team, such as product design.

What you can expect

Whether you are studying a finance, science or arts degree, we shall give you the means to develop vital skills for your future. We shall support and encourage you to bring in new ideas and to seize the opportunity to work on every project available to you. This means you should be ready to be challenged, open to working in a diverse team and determined to make your mark.

What you will do

This internship not only gives you an introduction to what we do, but it will also help you to understand complex finance processes and how we work with our customers on exciting and innovative projects. You will get a taste of our fast-paced environment, and have the chance to work on projects affecting real business and community needs. Whether in a branch or contact centre, you will work with your team to solve a variety of problems for our clients and customers. In your specialist role, you will have the opportunity to explore where your skills fit best and how to apply them to an international operation.

Who does this suit?

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

  • Confident communicators. In our ever-changing industry, it is vital that we talk to each other and pass on the correct information when required
  • Good networkers. Our customers mean everything to us so it is important to be motivated to keep them happy and to solve customer problems in a calm manner
  • Diverse thinkers. We look for people who are curious and can bring new ideas to the table with an enthusiasm for improving our service
  • Flexible team players. You will move from a branch or contact centre setting to a specialist office where the working environments are quite different. Being able to adapt to the pace and bringing a willingness to learn will be valued

What can this lead to?

If you excel on the internship, you could be considered for our Retail Banking and Wealth Management Graduate programme. Here, you will not only develop your skills in people management and customer service, but also you will learn new ways of working in our teams, taking a step closer to a professional career in a branch, contact centre or specialist team in our head office.
