As an RBS graduate, you get to make a big difference as you progress your career. You’re joining a bank with a clear vision for a stronger future. The ideas you share, decisions you drive and teams you inspire will play a big part.

In return for your hard work, we’ll get your career off to a flying start. With hands-on responsibility from an early stage, exceptional training and colleagues who are behind you every step of the way, you’ll develop the skills and knowledge you need to succeed – and quickly. You’ll also be exposed to different areas of RBS, seeing how we work together, where we’re going together and how your contribution slots in.

There’s a huge range of opportunities to explore in our five core business areas: Corporate & Institutional Banking, Commercial & Private Banking and Personal & Business Banking, all ably assisted by Services and Support & Control Functions. Every route offers the potential to build a rewarding long-term career.

Your first challenge? Deciding where your talents can make the biggest impact. If you’re not sure about which area is right for you, it’s worth taking time to explore our different business areas and the skills required.

A paid RBS internship is an excellent way to discover the realities of working in an international financial organisation. Whether you join us for one week or several, you’ll enjoy a great range of experiences in different areas of the bank. At the end of it all, you’ll know whether a career building the future of banking is right for you.

These aren’t your average student internships. However long you spend with us, expect technical training, networking events and a programme of work that will show you exactly how your chosen division fits into the wider bank. And this could be your first step towards a graduate career with RBS – we recruit interns in four of the areas that hire graduates:
