Do you see yourself doing more than a Graduate Programme? Making a choice than opens you up to many more opportunities? Challenging what's gone before to shape the future of global banking?

Then you see yourself joining us here, where the doors are open year round to new opportunities and the talented people needed to realise them.


Here at Societe Generale, we offer many more routes to success than the traditional Graduate training programmes. Our opportunities are available all year round. They are flexible and unlimited. You won't be asked to commit yourself to a single role or pathway. Rather, we want you to be yourself, to find your way with the help and support of dedicated resources, to push your limits - and ours - beyond everyone's expectations. And we want you to do it all your way.

Because we favour real-world learning in real time that opens up career pathways rather than prescribing them. It's the kind of approach that excites dynamic, ambition-fuelled individual's fresh from university who want more than a career – they want an adventure.

We believe there is nowhere better to build your knowledge, to gain exposure and to challenge your abilities – allowing you to impact and shape global and local clients within one of Europe's largest financial services groups.

We've been taking our clients on a journey of success for over 100 years, from corporate and investment banking to private banking, asset management, and securities services, as well as specialised financial services including vehicle and equipment finance.

If you want to explore Corporate Finance, our Coverage and Investment Banking division (CORI) is the ideal place to turn your accountancy or financial modelling and analysis skills into career-building experience. Here you'll learn what really underpins success – building long-term relationships founded on trust, tailoring products and services to corporates and financial institutions, collaborating and sharing expertise to deliver for our clients.
