Long Term Internship

Our long-term internships are the perfect platform to launch a long-term career with us. Running between six and 11 months, and with learning and development opportunities throughout, you’ll gain an in-depth knowledge of the investment banking sector and discover where a career in banking could take you.

The person:

These internships are suited to individuals who are curious and determined, displaying a strong collaborative spirit that will help them succeed on the programme and beyond. Having analytical skills and mathematical aptitude is a benefit, but the degree you have isn’t as important as the ideas and ambition you’ll bring to the team, and your desire to excel on this career path. To apply, you must be a student on a placement year, or graduate who completed your studies under a year ago.
