Customer Solutions Internship
Get your career off to a fantastic start with our ten week paid internships in Customer Solutions.
You’ll gain real insight into the world of commercial banking, and be well placed to join our graduate programme the following year.
About the programme
Within the Customer Solutions pathway, we have two distinct internship options. You can apply to either our Commercial Banking or our Structured Finance programme.
We’ve designed both of these ten week summer internships to give you first hand experience of the work we do in our Commercial Banking business. You’ll learn about our values and goals, the products and services we provide, and how we work together to deliver outstanding service for our customers.
The Commercial Banking internship covers a diverse range of customer relationships, while our Structured Finance internship focuses more specifically on larger clients, with complex financing needs. You can read in more detail about the individual internships in the listings below.
On both programmes, you’ll be rewarded with a salary of £21,500 pro rata, depending on location.
Both internships offer a great opportunity to:
- Develop your skills, and build some new ones
- Meet new people and grow your professional network
- Deepen your understanding of commercial banking
- Experience our team culture and values
- Get stuck into a real life project and add value to our business
- Gain valuable career experience, which will inspire your future career choices
For us, it’s also about finding and engaging talented and passionate people, who’ll make a difference to our business in the long term. That’s why if you complete the internship successfully, and enjoy your experience, there could be a place available for you on our 2020 Customer Solutions graduate programme.
What you'll do
The internship starts with an induction. You’ll then begin a ten week placement, where you’ll attend training workshops, get involved with our day to day work, and take part in a business improvement project. If you join Commercial Banking, you’ll complete this project individually and, if you join Structured Finance, you’ll do it in teams.
You’ll be updating your learning log so, towards the end of the internship, you’ll be able to show off everything you’ve learned in your final assessment.
We’ll pair you up with a ‘buddy’ and a line manager you’ll support you for the full ten weeks. Your buddy will be a current graduate who’ll help you get settled by sharing their experience. Your line manager will provide guidance and support throughout the programme, and help you grow your professional network.
To be eligible for either of these internships, you’ll need to be in your penultimate year of a university degree, and on course for a 2:1.
We’re looking for intelligent, highly motivated and forward-thinking people. People with the curiosity to approach things from fresh perspectives, the ability to build credible relationships, and the determination to help us shape the best solutions for our customers.
If that sounds like you, then why not apply?
