Graduate opportunities in 2022

While we redefine our early career offerings in the UK, we’ve decided not to run our rotational graduate programmes for now, so there won’t be a central application process this year. Summer internships remain as usual.

We continue to welcome new talent and there will still be entry-level opportunities available across various Investec teams, such as banking, wealth management and operations.

These positions will see you joining a specific team and developing your skills and knowledge to become a subject matter expert, with access to training and development opportunities within our environment. If you’re interested in joining Investec when you graduate, you can register your details now.
