What you'll do
The internship starts with an induction and you’ll then begin a 10 week placement where you’ll attend training workshops, get involved with our day to day work, and take part in a business improvement project with fellow interns.
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 who’ll support you for the full 10 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, discuss your career options and help you grow your professional network.
For a fuller picture of how you’ll progress through the 10 weeks, check out the Learning Journey below.
If we offer you a role, one of the first things we’ll do is invite you to join our onboarding portal for successful interns. We use it because it’s a great way for us to communicate key messages and to make sure you’re all ready for your first day. We’ll pair you up with your buddy who’ll be able to answer your questions before starting and who’ll help you throughout your 10 weeks. We’ll also introduce you to your line manager before you start too, because we want to make sure you hit the ground running.
As well as giving you an overview of the bank, the induction will outline the goals of the programme, introduce you to our values and explain the work you’ll be involved in over the next 10 weeks. You’ll also learn about the training we’ll provide and how we’ll assess you whilst you’re with us.
Over the 10 weeks, you’ll take part in a business improvement project, linked to one area of Data and Analytics.
In teams, you’ll to help find a solution or improvement in a specific area. This’ll give you the chance to complete research on a topic, work collaboratively, develop a business plan, and come up with recommendations for improvement or change to support our ambitions. You’ll present on this, as a team, toward the end of the programme.
This will be a great way of putting new ideas forward, making a real contribution and getting a sense of what our team culture’s all about. We’ll tell you about the specifics of this project during the induction.
Social Impact project
In addition to your placement and business projects you’ll take part in an intern challenge related to an exciting topic such as making a difference in a community, sustainability or innovation. Working in teams you’ll have a few weeks to create a business plan and come up with creative ideas to a question or challenge set by our charity partners or the business.
Throughout the challenge our graduates will support you. It’ll be a great opportunity to develop your entrepreneurial skills, work with other interns across the bank and contribute to the bank’s sustainability strategy, while having fun.
Towards the end of the internship, we’ll assess you on what you’ve learned, against the goals and values explained in the induction. You’ll be keeping up a learning log week by week, and you’ll be discussing progress with your line manager throughout. You’ll present on this, individually, towards the end of the programme.
In the penultimate week you’ll present individually, on the business improvement project you’ve been involved in, and you’ll also have an end of internship review. Complete these successfully, and you could be offered a place on our 2021 Data and Analytics graduate pathway.
From there you can carry the skills you’ve learned forward and take the next exciting step in your career.
