Off-cycle internships

We believe that internships are a fantastic opportunity for everyone involved. Our interns can apply their theoretical knowledge and experience to a real project while taking their first steps into the working world. At the same time, they open up new insights, ways of thinking and many different perspectives for the company. For this reason, we offer interesting internships in all areas of the company throughout the year.

A typical internship can last between three and six months and could be based in any of the following teams: Multi Asset, Real Estate, Shipping, Risk Controlling, Human Resources, ESG Office, Portfolio Management, Global Technology and many more. In every case, you will quickly become a member of our team.

We regularly post these off-cycle internship opportunities on our careers page, so please check back regularly to see if any of them appeal to you and your skillset.

Former Marketing & Events Intern

The most enjoyable and fascinating aspect of my internship is seeing all the different departments we have at Berenberg, and being able to get a small glimpse of the wide variety of services the bank has to offer. With so many different types of events there’s always something new to learn. The internship has definitely helped me to grow – with the support of my team I’ve improved my networking and social skills, business knowledge and much more.

Adrian Z.
Former Real Estate Intern

After my six-month internship in Real Estate, I’ll continue with my Master’s degree. Having a name like Berenberg on my CV will open up lots of opportunities for my future in banking. I was fortunate enough to get deeply involved in the transaction process and had the opportunity to learn a lot. I also made lots of valuable contacts - with work colleagues as well as other Berenberg students.

Lammi G.
Former Financial Markets Intern

I’m studying mechanical engineering, so I am not a typical investment banker, although I do have a love of numbers and maths. At Berenberg, I was taught all the basics and was introduced to the world of finance in an excellent way. In just a short period of time, I acquired a lot of technical knowledge in financial markets, how to understand and analyse them. I was also given responsibility for my own projects right from the start.
