High Yield is an exclusive training programme, sponsored by Deutsche Bank and run by Rare, for brilliant students who are interested in financial services. The programme is open to students from any discipline, who are in their first year (or second year on a four year course) at any university. It is aimed at students who are in receipt of means-tested grants and bursaries, or those who experience other forms of social disadvantage.
Competition for summer internship places is fiercer than ever. The application and interview process is rigorous. Deutsche Bank uses a range of assessments including ability tests, and one-on-one competency based and commercial awareness interviews to help them decide who to hire. These assessments measure ability but inevitably having confidence and social capital gives students an advantage. The programme aims to enable High Yield students to develop their enormous potential.
Participants will attend a series of group sessions and one-to-one sessions which will introduce them to the skills and knowledge required, not just for the application process itself, but also for a successful career in financial services.
Deutsche Bank’s in-house sessions will involve a wide range of Deutsche Bank employees from a variety of divisions, providing students with exceptional networking and learning opportunities. The group sessions will include case study exercises, in-depth business area overviews, interactive learning activities and sessions on application and interview skills. The one-to-one sessions will create a tailored plan for each student and will include discussions about current financial news.
The programme will also include work shadowing opportunities (in September sessions) which will give participants a first-hand of what life is like working in an Investment Bank. Depending on availability, participants will be able to choose to work shadow from one of the following divisions.
- Corporate Finance
- Global Transaction Banking
This programme will run for two consecutive days in June in Deutsche Bank’s London offices, as well as two consecutive days in September. Please note that all travel expenses will be paid.
In order to be eligible for the High Yield programme, you must be:
- A first year (or second year on a four year course) undergraduate student, of any subject discipline
- From a lower socioeconomic group - this might include eligibility for free school meals, means-tested grants and bursaries, or the experience of other forms of social disadvantage.
