Deutsche Bank is one of the world’s leading investment banks, with operations in over 70 countries. It is headquartered in Frankfurt and has around 7,000 UK employees. The bank prides itself on a unique approach to the banking business, which they call “passion and precision”.
Core areas of business are Corporate Banking & Securities, Global Transaction Banking, Asset & Wealth Management, and Private & Business Clients. In 2012, Deutsche Bank was named Best Global Investment Bank by Euromoney magazine at its annual Awards for Excellence, for the second time in three years.
The graduate programme is split into twelve key areas, including Corporate Finance, Research, In-house Consulting, and Human Resources. All recruits will complete an initial six-week induction programme in London, before being placed in an area of the business for two placements of four to eight months.
There are a wide range of training courses that graduates can attend, as well as informal on-the-job training and a buddy scheme. Starting salaries are around £33,000 to £40,000, and can progress to in excess of £80,000 after promotion.
Entry to the scheme is notoriously competitive, and it’s considered to be one of the toughest recruitment processes out there. That said, don’t let it put you off if you’re passionate about pursuing a career in banking. The rewards are there to be reaped for a select few!
Deutsche Bank translated into English is German Bank.
