You’ll be supported by open and values-led, high-performing team members, while our leaders will help you to be the best you can be, reflecting your interests and capabilities.

What you will do

You will gain an introduction to some of the most dynamic areas of our business and gain exposure to the ever-changing world of global banking, global markets and securities services.

In Corporate Banking, you will have the opportunity to work within a specific sector alongside a team of Relationship Managers who are responsible for managing the overarching relationships with our largest corporate and institutional clients. You will learn the industry and credit risks of the sector’s portfolio while gaining exposure to various product teams within Global Banking & Markets.
