About the role

This is your opportunity to experience the work that drives global commerce. Working with and learning from experts in everything from privatisations and mergers and acquisitions to equity financings and restructuring, you’ll see what it takes to deliver solutions that matter to our clients and our business. The pace here means there’s always something new to tackle, and you’ll learn constantly.

What to expect

You'll not only receive a unique insight into what we do by working closely with colleagues from across the Bank, but you will also take on your own projects and responsibilities — with our full support. You’ll start with training to equip you with the skills you’ll need as a banker, after which you’ll join a team focused on a key industry, product or region. You’ll work on live deals, develop your financial modelling and valuation skills, perform client relationship management and due diligence and help to develop and review the work of junior colleagues.

How you’ll develop

You’ll be surprised by what you can achieve in one summer. From beginning to end, we’ll do everything in our power to make sure you get the very most from your internship.

We’ll surround you with challenging projects and opportunities to grow and learn. We’ll keep you motivated with encouragement, feedback and support as you build your leadership skills, technical know-how and business acumen. We’ll help you connect with mentors, and network with colleagues and senior leaders alike. You’ll get the chance to give back to the community through volunteer events. And if you really impress us, this could be the beginning of an incredible career. We invite top-performing interns to join us as full-time analysts after graduation.

Who thrives here

Our Banking Summer Associate program is open to first-year MBA students with a keen interest in business and finance. You’ll be great at communicating and collaborating – motivated by pace and pressure and driven to achieve and search for the best solution.
