Summer Internships  

What's it all about?

Our summer internships are designed to give penultimate-year students an insight into our world. After 9 weeks, you’ll have gained enough knowledge and experience to decide if it’s a world you’d like to explore further.

An initial week-long induction, formal training classes, workshops, speaker series, and networking and social events combine to give you a real flavour of life at BNP Paribas. Additionally, the opportunity to shadow colleagues will give you up-close exposure and an understanding as to where your skills may lie.

The selection process includes online psychometric tests and an assessment centre. The programme is popular and the competition’s high, so make sure you prepare well for the best chance of landing a place.

Long-term Internships  

Long-term Internships  

What's it all about?

As the name suggests, our long-term internships are the perfect platform to launch a long-term career with us. Between 6 and 11 months, you’ll develop an in-depth knowledge of the investment banking sector and where you could fit in. They’re open to both students on a placement year, or graduates who completed their studies under a year ago.

While high academic performance is important, the subject of your degree is less so. Essentially, it’s your curiosity and determination, allied to a strong collaborative spirit, that will really help you succeed on the programme and beyond.
