These aren’t your average student internships. We want you to really get to know our business, and we’ll encourage you to get hands on to do it.

Whether you join us for one week or several, expect technical training, networking events and a programme of work that will show you exactly how your chosen division fits into the wider bank. We’ll challenge your skills and your determination, and you’ll leave us better equipped to take advantage of the crucial early years of your career.

We offer internships in the following 3 areas:

  • Commercial & Private Banking serves our commercial banking clients, helping them to open up new opportunities. By incorporating our market-leading wealth management franchises, we can connect successful entrepreneurs with our leading private bankers.
  • Technology and Business Solutions makes up a huge portion of our business, and underpins our ability to serve our customers. This division drives the innovation of our bank and supports every payment we make, every account we open, and every customer call we take.
  • Core Functions are the central areas of expertise – such as Finance or Communications and Marketing – and who provide support and control to our customer facing businesses, and to all other areas of the bank.

Where do I start?

We offer a range of internships depending on your interest, and what stage you’re up to in your studies.

If you’re in your first year – or the second year of a four year degree – you could join us for a week long Female Insight internship. This short but comprehensive programme will give you a real taste of what our business is like, and let you take inspirations from some of our best talent. The programme is open to all eligible students; male, female or non-binary.

In your penultimate year you can apply to join us for a longer Summer Internship. These programmes let you hone in on the area you’re most interested in, and really develop your skills and knowledge through hands-on projects over a 10 week period. A Summer Internship is the perfect opportunity to find out if RBS is right for you.

We’re closed for summer internship applications at the moment but please register your interest and we’ll notify you once we’re open.

This could be your first step towards a graduate career with RBS
