Handelsbanken Summer Internship Programme 2022


Throughout the organisation our colleagues enjoy wide-ranging responsibilities and the scope to pursue a career within a culture of openness and professionalism. We’re committed to embedding equality and diversity into our activities so that we’re an inclusive, welcoming and inspiring place to work, regardless of age, disability, pregnancy and/or parental status, ethnicity, religion, sex, gender reassignment or sexual orientation.

We believe that every person we employ is a long-term investment for the Bank, and we want our colleagues to stay with us, so we provide great opportunities for personal growth, skills development and career progression.

Wherever you work within the organisation, in a branch or in a head office function supporting the branches, you’re empowered to be proactive and take responsibility for your work, making decisions that contribute towards our growth.


We’re currently recruiting bright, articulate people who share our values for our Summer Internship Programme. This would be for a minimum of eight weeks and could lead to a long-term career with us. The Summer Internship Programme helps us to recruit our leaders of the future with many of our colleagues working for further qualifications including but not limited to: Chartered Banking Diploma and CeMAP. For the eight-week programme you’ll be supported by a mentor within your department or district.

Our programme gives self-starters who have plenty of initiative, an excellent opportunity to learn about our truly unique approach to banking.


We have positions throughout our UK branch network and at our head office locations in London and Manchester, providing practical experience covering some the following areas:

  • Customer satisfaction
  • Team working
  • Communication
  • Financial analysis
  • Problem solving and decision making
  • Commercial awareness
  • Time management
  • Innovation and creativity

During your internship you’ll be given the opportunity to take on specific tasks or a group project with your peers to develop those important softer skills, such as networking, presenting, relationship building and team work.


We’re open to applications from people with a variety of backgrounds, including those pursuing college, university degrees or recent graduates.


We’ll be reviewing applications on a rolling basis and following up with telephone interviews; if successful at this stage you’ll be invited to a virtual assessment.
