From the big to the small we’ve got the answers to your questions, preparing you for the opportunities that await.
We support applications for candidates requiring a work permit. However, restrictions may apply depending on the region.
If you are required to attend the BNP Paribas offices at any stage of the recruitment process, you can request reimbursement up to a certain amount.
You’ll be recruited to a specific office. However, because we have offices all over the world, you may well have the opportunity to work abroad at a later stage.
When you apply, you’ll be asked to indicate your preferred role but our application process is also designed to highlight which role or roles would suit you best. Please note you can only apply for one Graduate role of Summer Internship per year, and up to five Long Term Intern roles per year.
For our Early Careers recruitment please see our assessment process in the section below. For our Experienced Hire recruitment, this process varies by country or role, but your CV will be reviewed by one of our recruitment team and if your CV is a good match for the role, and if you are progressed you can expect technical and competency-based, structured interviews and a HR interview. Sometimes the process will include tests or case study work along the way.
We believe that global performance depends on local performance. Because success is often initiated by people who really know the local markets, BNP Paribas has developed a decentralised business model. Activities are managed locally and managers are also hired locally. In other words, BNP Paribas is a “multinational” company rather than a globalised one. On a day to day basis, this means more scope and creativity for employees.
At BNP Paribas, you’ll discover a whole world of opportunity to learn, develop and explore, while making a positive difference on the world around you. As global leaders in sustainable finance, we know the importance of discovering what’s possible, and provide in-depth learning and development for you to do the same.
Each of our programmes has tailored learning and support, designed to help prepare you for the future, and the new world that awaits. You can find out more by visiting the Learning & Development section for each programme.
To ensure your assessment is a smooth and accessible experience, we’ve collated useful hints, tips and advice to help you sail through.
Know your CV like the back of your hand. Think through your personal and professional achievements. Alongside this think about how you can demonstrate your knowledge of the Bank, including the business area you’d like to work in. Be ready to tell us about the skills and experience you have that make you ideal for this role.
These aren’t anything to worry about, but if you need some practise there are plenty of resources out there to practise competency-based questions. This is your time to demonstrate just how much this opportunity means to you.
Interviews are a two-way process and therefore it’s just as important that come you away feeling good about us, as it is the other way round. So, as well as researching and practising some answers, think about some questions you might like to ask us.
This is the final stage and is a mixture of individual tasks, group exercises and interviews. Once you reach this stage we’ll send you some more details to help you prepare.
