Our Global Tech department is shaping the digital future of our bank, developing customised software solutions and innovative technologies tailored to the needs of modern banking. Berenberg was established in 1590, and today we are one of Europe’s leading privately owned banks, with offices in many cosmopolitan cities including Hamburg, London, New York and Frankfurt.

Due to the increasing importance of technology within the bank, we are proud to launch our inaugural Global Tech Graduate Programme, to attract bright junior tech talent. The programme is designed to give you significant business exposure, comprehensive training and the opportunity to work throughout Europe in a forward-thinking and agile environment.

How does the programme work?

Your journey starts with an intensive six-week classroom based training course, designed to help you prepare for your career at Berenberg. After the induction time, you will be ready to hit the ground running. You will try your hand at various tech roles such as a Tech Consultant, Software Developer or Business Analyst, giving you the opportunity to see where your talent lies. You will then enter the Innovation Phase as a group. You will use your creativity and problem solving skills to tackle some of the most innovative and complex tech projects within the bank, working side-by-side with your innovation mentors to develop new software, infrastructure and technologies that will have a real impact on Berenberg’s future success.

After all this training and exposure, you will be able to identify the right team for you to join permanently within our Global Technology department.
