How it works

Available in Germany.

We have different working student opportunities available in Germany across a range of business divisions. Being a working student is an excellent introduction to the world of work and offers you the chance to gain practical experience in a major European bank.

As a full time university student (or part time student but then more than 25 hours per week) on a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree course, you will work up to 20 hours a week in one of our teams. You will effectively be a part-time member of your team, gaining valuable experience of our day-to-day activities. This gives you an excellent opportunity to voice your opinions, contribute to our work and build your understanding of our business.

What we look for

You must be a current full time university student or part time student (but then more than 25 hours of studies per week). Ideally, you have already gained some work experience or can convey your genuine interest in the desired field of activity. For example, you may have previously worked in a similar role, or you may have a relevant personal interest, such as being a member of a board or investment club at university.

Just as important, you will be self-motivated, with the drive and determination to make your mark and actively contribute to our business. Please have a look at our current vacancies and find the working student position that matches your interest.

Meet one of our early careers talents

Anna-Lena R.
Former working Student (Single Family Office & Family-Owned Business)

I’ve found it very beneficial working between various different Berenberg service areas. It means that not only have I expanded my knowledge of the bank, but I’ve been able to create a bigger picture of Berenberg and its fields of activity as a whole. I’ve also grown and learned a lot personally, through development of my soft skills and professional knowledge, as well as getting to know my own strengths and weaknesses better.

Meet one of our early careers talents

Lea Marie W.
Working Student (Human Resources)

In my time here I have found that Berenberg is a motivating and supportive organisation. I have grown personally through the trust that has been placed in me as I deliver key projects and tasks. While professionally, my manager has inspired me to continue my education and take a Master’s degree while working. I can certainly picture myself working here in the future. I hope that once I complete my degree I can then start a long career with Berenberg.
