You become the trusted advisor to our largest clients?
As a Wholesale Banking trainee, you’ll play an active role in the dynamic, globe-straddling world of corporate banking. You’ll be doing essential work as a trusted advisor for big clients, on big deals.
Small teams. Big impact.
Wholesale banking is the engine that drives the profitability of our business. We operate in small, close-knit teams to meet the financing needs of governments, corporations and financial institutions. It’s a high pressure, deal-driven environment that demands analytical skills and plenty of initiative.
Responsibility from day one
As a Wholesale Banking trainee, you’ll be thrown in at the deep end from day one. You’ll quickly familiarise yourself with our clients’ businesses and the sectors they operate in. Within weeks, you’ll be contributing analysis and recommendations that will inform important decisions.
There’s no instruction manual for the work we do. You’ll have the support of senior colleagues, but how you achieve your objectives is up to you. Along the way, you’ll learn the fundamentals of corporate financing deals. You’ll also master the art of negotiation and relationship management: skills that will benefit you for life.
What you can expect
Your personal talent manager will help you choose your first assignment, but ultimately it’s your decision. Over the course of several months, you’ll learn about the core business of wholesale banking. You might work as an assistant, for example, conducting vital research and analysis on sectors and clients.
For your second assignment, you’ll hone your analytical skills in Structured Finance, Corporate Finance or Financial Markets. You’ll have the opportunity to work in a major financial hub, such as Frankfurt, London, New York or Singapore. You decide where and how that assignment happens, using your network and your initiative.
Your first position
After the first 12-18 months, you’ll take on your first permanent role. Over 2 years, you’ll specialise in an area of your choosing. Where you go from there is entirely up to you.
