Discovering your career

If you’re interested in building the next generation of banking, developing your skills at the UK’s largest digital bank and working on the frontline of emerging technologies, we want to hear from you.

So, if you are in your penultimate year of university and are on course to achieve a 2:2 in any subject, then apply now. If you share our vision, are eager to learn and can help push us forward, then we want you.

We want to get to know the real you. So when you apply for an Internship, the most important thing is – just be yourself! Tell us what you’re passionate about. Help us understand what motivates you as a person.

There are two stages for our internship application process:

Stage 1: Online test

The first step is to complete our online application form. After that, we’ll ask you to do a strengths and cultural assessment which shows us whether we’d be a good match. You’ll then have to complete a numerical and critical reasoning test. If you want to practice these tests, you can at The application and online testing stage should take around 90 minutes.

We’ll give you a feedback report within a few days of completing the first stage and within a few weeks of the closing date we’ll let you know if you’ve been successful on progressing to the next stage.


Stage 2: Video interview

After your online tests, there’s a 30-minute video interview. Because you're applying for an internship, this is the final stage of the assessment process and if you are successful at this stage, we’ll make you an offer.


Closing dates

Applications are open now and will close on different dates for different programmes. You’ll need to check the closure date for the programme you want to apply for and ensure your application form and online tests are all submitted by that date.

Application tips

Here are four top tips to help you at each stage of the way:

1. Take some time to think about whytoggle

We want to know how you feel about our industry and why it interests you. And since our purpose is to help Britain prosper, we’d love to hear examples of how you live our values. Whether it’s your experience of volunteering or your ambitions to get involved in our charity work, how can you help us achieve our purpose while achieving yours?

2. Think about your strengthstoggle

Strengths-based interviews are a bit different from traditional assessments. We’d like to learn about what you’re naturally good at, so be prepared to show us how you do things across various exercises – on your own and with a group – on our assessment days.

3. Let us know if you need extra supporttoggle

We recognise that people are different and we’ve tried to make our application process accessible to everyone. Get in touch if you have any accessibility requirements or need any other help to complete your application and interview:

4. Don’t talk to the clocktoggle

Our video interview will ask you to answer a series of questions in a certain amount of time. But just because there is 45 seconds, don’t feel you need to fill that time up. As long as you say everything you need to say, that’s all that matters.

One last thing

Above all, we want to see the real you. We’re not interested in perfectly performed responses and learned answers. We want to hear what you’re truly passionate about, and why you believe this programme is right for you. So, be yourself! We’re looking forward to meeting you.
