  • For me, the technology and transformation programme was the ultimate balance of challenge and reward. Interning in the IT risk department allowed me to develop my skills and work independently on projects - all in a culture of encouragement and support. Having your own responsibility, and working with innovative talent to implement real change across the Bank was a privilege not many interns get to experience.

  • Coming from a scientific background, an internship in the banking industry may not have seemed like the obvious choice, but The Co-operative Bank stood out to me as a great place to work due to its strong values and ethics. I was blown away by how friendly and helpful everyone is - no question was too stupid! I enjoyed getting stuck in and doing something worthwhile with my time here.

  • Being part of the IT Service Delivery Team and the Technology Office let me see different parts of the IT and Change department, really letting me learn about its structure. Everyone created a very friendly environment which made me feel really welcome. Frm my first week I was involved in revamping the intranet page and helping with the creation of role based profiles for the DTP. The Co-operative Bank really lived up to my expectations.

  • I found my time to be both engaging and fun. Getting to know the Service Delivery Team and learning about their roles helped me understand the workplace dynamic and my place within it. Everyone was very welcoming and approachable.
