The Risk Summer Internship Programme aims to give you exposure into Operational Risk, New Business Group, Credit Risk and Market Risk.
We offer a nine-week Summer Internship for penultimate year students interested in learning about the banking business. The programme will provide you with the opportunity to develop your technical knowledge, gain valuable on-the-job training, understand our culture and create new networks.
The first week of the internship is class-room based training which is provided to enhance your key technical skills and will enable you to perform in your team during the internship. Following the training week, you will join one of our Risk Teams for the remaining of the internship and complete tasks at a similar level of a first year Analyst. At the end of the internship, strong performers will receive offers to join our Graduate Programme.
Additional sessions during the internship include soft skill sessions, product presentations, business overviews as well as social events.
Summer Analysts will receive extensive training to enhance the skills they need to perform well during their internship. As part of the Corporate Infrastructure Summer Programme you will receive training which will include business overview presentations, structured class room seminars, internal training by business representatives and team-building with colleagues. You will receive ongoing performance feedback and have access to division specific educational sessions designed to aid your professional development. Managers will focus on your career development and dedicate their time to coach and mentor you, helping you realise your full potential.
Throughout the Internship Programme you will be supported both by a buddy, mentor and dedicated programme management team.
What’s your role?

You will obtain an overview of rating analysis, trading limits, reporting and advice provided by the Credit Risk analysts in managing our counterparty exposure.
