Our careers programmes
We run several graduate programmes in the UK, including rotational programmes in banking and technology, analytics and investment banking. You do not need to have studied a finance-related degree to apply.
If you are in your penultimate year of study, the Investec Summer Internship Programme gives you the opportunity to gain valuable experience in a distinctive financial services organisation. We are genuinely interested in our people and reward fresh ideas.
Return to Work programme
In 2020 we launched dedicated opportunities for talented individuals who have been out of the workplace for two or more years. Successful applicants are offered a mid- to senior-level role with real responsibility, as well as mentoring and training.
Investec’s graduate programmes have been designed to develop people with outstanding talent. If you reflect our values through your ability to think Out of the Ordinary, your enthusiasm and your integrity, then apply for the programme that best suits you.
In the UK we offer graduate roles in Corporate, Investment and Private Banking. There are multiple programmes that run for between 15 and 24 months. You'll feel like part of the team from day one.
You don't need to have completed an internship before to join us for an eight-week placement that will give you a taste of business areas such as technology, analytics and banking. Many of our interns have gone on to join our graduate scheme.
We look for candidates with a passion for business and finance and offer structured learning opportunities, a range of networking events and presentations to boost your skills and help you get the most out of the experience.
Return to Work programme
If you're looking to re-start your career after a break of two or more years, this programme could be for you. We have partnered with Women Returners to offer talented individuals of all genders the chance to join our team.
You'll complete a six-month placement with a view to a permanent opportunity at the end of the programme. You'll be fully supported and have access to our wide variety of wellbeing benefits. More placements will be announced later in the year.
