The first week consists of hands-on training, and throughout the program interns receive ongoing training and support including formal learning, on-the-job practice, and mentoring.
The program offers opportunities to meet with senior managers, colleagues and peers at all levels across the bank. You will have the opportunity to gain insights into the bank and its culture, to and build a professional network.
Your managers will work with you on objectives, and on a review process. This provides structure to your placement and gives you an outline of placement requirements and goals.
