You can join BNP Paribas through a number of routes including Insight programmes for first-year students, summer and long-term internships, and full-time Analyst and Associate level programmes for graduates and higher degrees.
These are all designed to give you the experience and exposure you need to develop your knowledge and interest in banking, wherever you are in your career. Our Spring Insight and Internship programmes will give you an early opportunity to experience our culture and the kind of work we do before you commit to a full-time position, either as an Analyst or, if you have a higher degree and are based in the US, as an Associate.
In applying to join our programmes, one of your first decisions should be to decide which area of the Bank interests you, and which programme is the right one for you.
Throughout BNP Paribas we are committed to encouraging and supporting our people in gaining experience in different parts of our business and in different locations. As a potential new joiner, that means, if you're studying in one location, London for example, but you're interested in a role in another location, let’s say Hong Kong, then you can state your preference in your application and you will be considered for that opportunity. Remember though, that your application will be considered alongside other local applications for that office – so you'll need to show us why you're the best candidate.
To give you the best chance of success we suggest you think about the abilities and qualifications you have that are relevant to your chosen location. Do you have relevant language skills or experience of the local market? Do you have any links in the area or any specialist expertise that will make you particularly useful to that office? Also, remember that you will be living in another country and, while we will help you settle in, you will be far away from your normal support networks at home.
If you think you are the right person for a role in one of our overseas offices, then we encourage you to apply. We like people who are internationally minded and prepared to take on new challenges and responsibilities.
