The format of the programme
Your programme starts with a three-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.
Over 15 months, you will experience a series of rotations across different parts of our business, including core rotations in our Wealth & Asset Management divisions as well as in our Corporate Banking teams. You will also have the chance to choose other rotations in different parts of our business. As an active member of each team you join, you will enjoy the opportunity to voice your opinions, contribute to real projects 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.
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.

Meet one of our early careers talents
Philipp B.Wealth & Asset Management and Corporate Banking Graduate
I’m currently in the middle of the Wealth & Asset Management and Corporate Banking Programme. Before I applied, I was aware of Berenberg as a private bank, and associated them with wealth and asset managers. But two things surprised me: the breadth of services Berenberg provides across all its divisions -especially in the corporate banking division- and how flat the organisation is structured. Decisions are made quickly, and my colleagues are great. If you want to work with good people in an entrepreneurial environment, this is definitely the right place for you.01/02
