About the business

At NatWest Markets we focus on what we do best and what matters most to our customers; providing financing, risk management and trading solutions to our customers in Europe, Asia and the US. Putting purpose at our core, we aim to be the partner of choice for our NatWest customers and their financial markets needs.

Our Change and Business Solutions graduate programme

Kristie and Alix talk about the Change and Business Solutions graduate programme, what you can expect, and why it’s a great place to start your career.

About the programme

The aim of these internships are to give you a taste of what it’s like to work at NatWest Markets, along with valuable skills and experiences that you’ll bring into your future career.

Our UK based Front Office and Quant internship lasts 10 weeks, whilst our European internships last up to 6 months.

We’ll reward you with a competitive salary.

The programme starts with an induction, where you’ll learn about the bank, meet your fellow interns, and get the chance to talk with colleagues from around our business.

You’ll then begin a placement where you’ll get involved with our live day to day work, and take part in a business project. This will give you the opportunity to complete research on a topic and come up with recommendations for improvement or change to support our ambitions.

During the programme, you’ll also work on a social impact project. This will help you to develop key skills covering team working, planning, creative thinking, business plan writing and problem solving, all while contributing to a valuable cause.

For the duration of your internship, we’ll pair you with a ‘buddy’ and a line manager, who’ll help you grow your network and provide guidance and support.

At the end of the placement, we’ll assess you on what you’ve learned. Complete this successfully, and you could be offered a place on our 2023 graduate programme, where you’ll carry the skills you’ve learned from your internship forward, taking the next exciting step in your career.

Our people work differently depending on their jobs and needs.

This role is based in Italy and as such all normal working days must be carried out in Italy.
