2022 Summer interns at London office

Who we're looking for

If you are in your penultimate or final 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. Many of our interns have been given the opportunity to re-join our business in an early careers role.

We know the best ideas come from having teams with different backgrounds so we are open to applicants studying any degree subject if you’re curious, energetic and keen to join us. Opportunities are available throughout our business (not just in finance) as long as you can demonstrate a passion for your chosen team. This can be your first experience within our industry and you don’t have to have completed an internship before.

Photgraphed are the 2022 cohort of Summer interns at the London office.

Quote from previous intern
Elena Katsafadou, 2019 summer intern

I had the opportunity to experience more areas of banking than I even knew existed. In just eight weeks, I felt more confident and ready to pursue my career in teams that I would not have known suited me prior to the internship.’
