Opportunities for individuals interested in a career in banking
About the programme
This is an exciting opportunity to take part in the Handelsbanken Internship Programme, where we hope to find our leaders of the future.
Our interns are talented, motivated and enjoy being empowered to make a difference. We’re looking for people who share our values, putting our customers at the heart of what we do and who are always happy to take responsibility and collaborate with colleagues.
As an intern you’ll follow a structured programme covering all aspects of the Bank’s operations, working alongside specialists in branch or functional departments. You’ll spend your first few weeks understanding the core principles of our business, before taking on your own responsibilities that will see you gain experience in all areas of banking.
By the end of the placement you will have delivered work and projects that add value to the Bank, whilst also developing your professional skills in a friendly and supportive environment.

We are one of the world’s strongest banks, with roots in local communities throughout Denmark, Finland, the Netherlands, Sweden, Norway and the UK. Across a range of digital and physical meeting places, our branch teams offer ‘up close and personal’ financial advice and solutions, based on customers’ individual needs. In this way, we aim to forge lasting relationships with satisfied private and corporate customers, helping us grow steadily through word of mouth.
Our way of doing business is based on trust and respect, both for our customers and our 12,000 employees. Wherever colleagues move around our business, they enjoy everyday responsibility and the power to decide on the questions they are closest to – all within an open, cooperative culture.
By running our bank prudently, we can contribute to the financial strength of our customers, employees and wider society, whatever the economic conditions. And by using our influence as a lender, an investor and a global business, we can make wide-ranging difference to the world around us.
