Get your career off to a flying start with our 10 week paid internship in Communications and Marketing.

You’ll gain real insight into how we communicate and engage with our customers, and be perfectly placed to join our graduate programme the following year.


About the business area

Communications & Marketing partner with our franchises and functions to champion the voice of the customer across the bank, grow our businesses, build pride with our colleagues and improve our reputation with external stakeholders. We do this by providing strategic advice, championing our customers, and delivering clear internal and external communications, aligned to our business’s vision and goals.


About the programme 

The aim of this 10 week internship is to give you a taste of what it’s like to work here, along with useful skills and experience that you’ll bring into your future career. 

You’ll gain first hand experience of the work we do in Communications and Marketing to grow our businesses, enhance our reputation and engage our customers and colleagues. We’ll reward you with a salary of £21,500 pro rata, depending on location.

The programme starts with an induction, where you’ll learn about RBS, meet your fellow interns, and get the chance to talk with colleagues from around our business.

You’ll then begin your placement, where you’ll attend training workshops, get involved with our day to day work, and take part in a business project. 

This will give you the opportunity to complete research on a topic and come up with recommendations for improvement or change to support our ambitions.

During the programme, you’ll also work on a Social Impact Project. 

This will help you to develop keys skills covering team working, planning, creative thinking, business plan writing and problem solving – all while contributing to a valuable cause. 

For the full 10 weeks, we’ll pair you with a buddy and a line manager, who’ll help you grow your network and provide guidance and support.

At the end of the placement, we’ll assess you, and you may be offered a place on our 2021 Communications & Marketing graduate programme, where you’ll carry the skills you’ve learned from your internship forward, taking the next exciting step in your career.
