Students and Trainees at Varengold Bank

Theory meets practice

Finally, get a taste of how things work! Apply the knowledge you have acquired and gain your first insights into professional work. Find out how absorbing modern banking can be and whether working for a bank actually suits you or not. We offer several ways in which you can gather such experiences:

  • Internship: Are you pursuing a study program that includes a mandatory internship or do you intend to hone your work skills voluntarily? In that case, you have come to the right bank!

  • Vocational training: Germany is known for its effective vocational training system, which has trainees alternate between study and work periods. To accept trainees, a company needs to be certified. Varengold Bank received its certificate from the City of Hamburg’s chamber of commerce. We offer traineeships for “IT Specialists for Application Development” and “Office Administrators”. Due to the nature of vocational training, you will need sufficient German language skills to enter one of the programs.

  • Work student programs: Nearly every specialist department at Varengold Bank – be it Legal, Compliance or Inhouse Consulting – offers work student assignments for up to 20 work hours/week on top of your study load.

  • Integrated degree program: You are looking for a study program with a focus on practical application and excellent career perspectives? Starting October 2021, we are offering the integrated degree program “Applied Computer Sciences” in cooperation with Nordakademie, which is located in Hamburg’s metropolitan region. You will be able to complete a Bachelor of Science degree in 7 semesters (standard period of study). Just like our vocational training programs, the integrated degree program requires a sufficient command of the German language.

We publish all internships opportunities as well as spots on the vocational training, work student and integrated degree programs via our job portal. Should you not find what you are looking for, feel free to send us an unsolicited application!

By the way, Varengold Bank is a member of Fair Company, Germany’s most notable employer initiative. It is specifically aimed at entry level candidates and promotes companies that provide young people with fair work conditions and development perspectives.

Being able to to make a difference and to achieve something of value, even as a very junior member of staff, is one of things I really appreciate about Varengold Bank.”
