"RBC are leaders in domestic and international markets whose supportive culture, friendly staff and challenging work create a brilliant, fun learning environment for any internship."
  • Interns are given challenging and interesting work that helps them develop their skills and learn about the banking industry.
  • The firm has an open, friendly culture meaning that interns are made to feel like part of the team.
  • The initial training provided to interns is well organised and of a high standard.
  • Interns have a good chance to see what career options may be available to them across the bank.
  • As expected in the banking industry, the hours worked can be very long.
  • The short length of the internship may mean interns don't get as much experience as they would like.
  • There could be more opportunities for interns to interact with each other.
  • The amount of training given to interns seemed quite low to some.
