What to expect
An opportunity to flourish
Immerse yourself in our business over eight weeks and grow your network with colleagues across a diverse range of business areas. If you have an entrepreneurial spirit combined with a passion and energy to succeed, we have an opportunity for you to flourish in an engaging environment.
Successful applicants will become part of a team within the business, gaining insight into our culture and exposure to our senior leaders. As an intern you will be given real responsibilities and have an opportunity to contribute and deliver to whichever team you join.
Opportunities to learn
Satisfy your hunger to learn with presentations and talks from experienced Investec employees across our business. There will also be a number of networking opportunities, helping you engage with our business and our people.
First, you submit your CV on our application portal, when vacancies open in October. You will then receive a link to complete a video application. Selected candidates are then invited to an interview with the Early Careers Lead followed by a panel interview with the respective team you have chosen to join. If you're successful and accept the offer, you’ll be placed in a team or teams for the internship, and begin the eight week internship in July.
Who we're looking for
If you are in your penultimate or final year of study, the Investec Summer Internship Programme allows you 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 allowed to re-join our business in an early career 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.

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.
