OUR PROGRAMMES

THE APAC GRADUATE TWO-YEAR PROGRAMME

Our comprehensive two-year APAC Graduate Programme is designed to give final year bachelor’s or master’s degree students and recent graduates the support and development needed to launch a successful career in the banking and finance industry.

You could join us in one of our business areas or support functions and assume real responsibility from day one.

THE APAC INTERNSHIP PROGRAMME

If you are a full-time student in your penultimate year or someone who has just graduated, we can offer you a chance to learn more about BNP Paribas through a six-month internship experience running from January to June in Hong Kong or Singapore. You’ll learn on the job, attend insightful events, join product and soft skills training, and experience professional networking gatherings. Do well, and you can expect to be considered for conversion to a full-time role when you graduate.

To enhance your knowledge, we will take you along a tailored development path to build your expertise and broaden your skills through the various learning channels (classroom, virtual and on-demand e-learning) offered by our Regional Learning & Development team. As a learning company, the opportunities at BNP Paribas are endless.

You will receive business specific training to help you familiarise yourself with our different products, services and operations that your team manages.

EVALUATIONS AND CHECK-INS

To support your growth and progression within the Bank, there will be regular touchpoints for you to review and discuss your development needs and career direction.

REGIONAL PROJECTS

To stretch and challenge you, participation in a regional project provides an opportunity for you to work with other APAC Graduates under the guidance of the project sponsor. This project will give you a broader perspective and exposure to what BNP Paribas does across the region, and provides you with further opportunities to establish strong internal connections beyond your immediate team.

As a permanent hire, upon completion of the two-year programme, you will be ready to take on the challenges in the next phase of your career with the Bank.

To orientate you to our culture and equip you with key skills to succeed in your role, the programme starts with two weeks of training where you will participate in combined group induction courses where you will learn more about BNP Paribas and acquire both cross-functional, regional and technical skills through engaging learning sessions tailored just for you.

MENTORSHIP

Supported by dedicated colleagues, (both mentors and early career professionals), you will also be enrolled in a formal mentoring journey that is complemented by resources that allow you to make the most out of the mentorship.
