Handelsbanken Summer Internship Scheme

This is an exciting opportunity for individuals interested in a career in banking to take part in the Handelsbanken Internship Programme. Working as part of a team you will have the chance to build your knowledge of banking by spending time learning all elements of the banking operation.

The successful candidates will follow a specific programme, based either within one of the branches or the Regional Head Office covering all aspects of the bank’s operations. Working as an integrated member of the team, you will spend your first few weeks understanding the core principles of the business before being assigned activities that allow you to gain experience in the broader aspects of banking, working alongside account managers or more specialised functions.

This is a fully paid internship.  The office hours are 9am – 5pm, Monday – Friday.

Interns should be able to commit to a minimum of eight weeks during the summer holiday period with the possibility of a longer internship of up to one year in certain locations (please indicate your interest in a longer internship when submitting your application).

If you are interested then please send your CV and cover letter to Julie Bateman at ku.ca1532296767.notl1532296767ob@511532296767bj1532296767


Graduate Schemes

Graduate schemes and graduate training programmes are offered by many large employers. They typically last a year, but some extend to 18 months or even two years.   Graduate schemes enable new recruits to settle quickly into a professional work environment, receive relevant skills development and get hands on experience, either working in a specific role within an established team, or through working on a number of assignments in different areas of the organisation over the duration of the programme.

Closing dates: the majority of training schemes have application deadlines between November and December for programmes starting the following September/October.  You need to do your employer research and be ready to apply early during your final year.

An increasing number of employers have ‘ongoing’ or ‘open’ recruitment processes meaning that, in principle, they take applications all year round.  Despite this, you are still advised to apply early. While these recruiters don’t give a specific deadline, they may make offers from the start of the application period and they may close their scheme once they have filled all their vacancies.
