Investment Bank Graduate Programme

At Berenberg, we are one bank, working together to be the best we can be for each other and our clients. So, when you choose to join our Investment Bank Graduate Programme, you will enjoy rotations through every part of our business. It is a great way to learn how the different divisions work together and discover where you’d like to take your career.

On each rotation you will be a key member of the team, putting forward ideas, contributing to live projects and picking up a broad range of valuable skills. From Research to Sales and Investment Banking, you will discover new skills, explore different possibilities and plan your future at Berenberg. So, at the end of your 12-month programme, you will be all set for your first permanent role.

We source our talents from the summer internship programmes.

The format of the programme

Four-week induction

Your programme starts with a four-week induction that introduces you to the business and our unique approach to banking. It is a great opportunity to get to know the other graduates on the programme, come face-to-face with senior business leaders and build a valuable network of contacts across the bank.

With a series of training workshops in everything from Excel to Financial Modelling, teamwork and presentation skills, you will also start to develop the core skills that will stand you in good stead throughout your career.

Four-week induction

Your rotations

Over 12 months, you will experience a series of rotations across every part of our Equities and Investment Banking businesses. From contributing to company and sector research, to supporting Sales teams and working on high profile Investment Banking projects, you’ll be an active member of each team. So, you will have the chance to voice your opinions, do real work and genuinely make your mark.

You won’t just gain knowledge and skills. The rotations will open your eyes to all the available career possibilities for the time after the graduate programme. Senior managers will support you at every stage, offering constructive feedback and planning your next rotation, based on your career aspirations. Then, towards the end of the programme, we will sit down with you to mutually decide on the right career direction for you.

Your rotations

Professional development

We believe that the best way to develop your talents is to get hands-on and do things. That is why we incentivise our managers to involve graduates in high level, high impact, high profile work. So, whatever teams you join, you’ll be encouraged to take early responsibility, make your own decisions and be an active member of the team.

Throughout your programme and beyond, you will have extensive development support from managers, colleagues and the Human Resources team. This includes access to a range of online and offline training resources.

Jenna X.
Investment Bank Graduate

I really like the rotational aspect of the programme, it allows me to explore my interests and deepen my knowledge of how different divisions of the bank work together. Plus, getting to meet and work with amazing people across the bank has been incredible. No two teams are the same, I’m constantly taking on new challenges and learning every day. Getting feedback from my colleagues has been very helpful for my personal and professional development.

Investment Bank Graduate

There couldn’t be a better place to start your career. The exposure to clients and coverage at Berenberg is unmatched, and the culture perfectly balances learning opportunities with autonomy. Within three weeks of joining, I got to attend an analyst lunch on my team’s behalf, directly interacting with the CFO of the company, representing the firm. I was very surprised and grateful for the level of responsibility I received so early on.

Investment Bank Graduate

What surprised me most about working at Berenberg was how much face time I was given by senior people at the bank. Feeling included in professional discussions has allowed me to learn more quickly. Whether it’s a chat about a stock, or plans for my future career, everyone from graduates to directors make the time to talk to me and make me feel like part of the bank. It’s that fantastic culture that makes me want to return after my internship.
