About American Express

Be more at American Express

American Express’ heritage was built on service and has been sustained by innovation. Through our evolution from an express mail business in 1850, to one of the world’s largest card issuers by purchasing volume and a digital innovator, we’ve never been afraid to explore new possibilities and embrace the changing marketplace.

From our high employee satisfaction ratings to our many workplace awards, American Express is consistently recognised as a great place to work by people around the world. We offer talented individuals challenging work with purpose by embracing both innovation and tradition. As our company has grown and evolved, sometimes reinventing our business outright, we have never strayed from the customer-service ethos and values on which the company was built- trust, security, integrity, quality, good citizenship, respect and customer commitment.

Our Summer Internship Programme

As a summer intern at American Express, you’ll be encouraged to push yourself, generate new ideas, take calculated risks and collaborate across business lines.

Finance Industrial Placement

Placement Year (10 Months+)

BSc Accounting & Financial Management

Throughout my year, I didn’t feel like I was the intern as I was always treated like a permanent employee and was given the responsibilities of one. Being a part of a close-knit team and being valued has been very fulfilling.
