Insight programme

Deutsche Bank is the leading German bank with strong European roots and a global network. We’re driving growth through our strong client franchise. Against a backdrop of increasing globalisation in the world economy, Deutsche Bank is very well-positioned, with significant regional diversification and substantial revenue streams from all the major regions of the world. We serve our clients’ real economic needs in commercial banking, investment banking, private banking, and asset management. We're investing heavily in digital technologies, prioritising long term success over short-term gains, and serving society with ambition and integrity. All this means a career packed with opportunities to grow and the chance to shape the future of our clients.

About Our Rise Insight Programme:

Designed to excite and inspire black heritage students, who are currently in their first-year of a three year course, or second year of a four year course, this four-day spring insight programme will open a world of possibilities for a career in banking. Our Rise insight programme is an amazing opportunity for you to experience the inclusive and collaborative culture that we’re proud to have cultivated at Deutsche Bank.

This programme is aimed at students of black heritage, as this is currently a demographic that is underrepresented within the banking and finance industry. Your week starts with an introduction to working in banking. Led by expert trainers, you will learn how financial markets work and get to know more about the way Deutsche Bank operates. You will meet and work closely with a variety of our people, from analysts and associates right through to senior management, who will help you build a professional network that will serve you throughout your career.

You will be exposed to different divisions of the bank and over a few days will have the opportunity to work shadow various desks to see what goes on behind the scenes. There will be multiple opportunities to practice and develop your soft skills such as networking, presenting, and interviewing.

Rise is a programme that not only recognises talent but also rewards it. By becoming a part of our bank, you’re becoming part of a diverse and inclusive network that will continue to support you for the rest of your career.

After the programme successful Rise interns will be fast tracked to a 2025 Summer Internship assessment centre.

This programme is for you if:

  • You might never have thought about a career in an investment bank.
  • You’re not sure where your skills would fit in and need help to identify where you could build your career.
  • You would like to explore different opportunities and find out more about the culture of the bank and the support available.
  • You would like to know about the reality of banking, not the myths and stereotypes.

What we look for:

We're looking for highly intelligent students who are ambitious, adaptable and have a genuine interest in a career in investment banking. We’re not expecting you to have all the knowledge, but demonstrating your motivation for this opportunity and willingness to learn is key.

We're open to students from all degree disciplines, and during the programme we will help you match your skills to opportunities at the bank. We offer comprehensive training opportunities that will give you the technical knowledge you’ll need to build a career with us. Above all, we’re looking for entrepreneurial people who thrive best in a diverse culture where innovation and agile thinking abound.

To apply for our Rise Insight Programme you must be in the first year of your undergraduate studies, or your second year of a four year course.

Expenses for any in-person training are reimbursed.

Virtual interviews will take place in February and the programme will take place in April 2024, exact dates to be confirmed.
