For Young Professionals

We offer trainees individualized programs to start off their careers. The unique aspect of our trainee program is that trainees experience all of the key areas of our bank. There is no specialization in any single business area.

Because the length of the assignments varies, we can tailor them to the individual interests of our trainees. The major assignments – private banking, sales and trading, and corporate finance – are supplemented with assignments in other departments such as finance, accounting, controlling, product selection and control, ship credit, and the credit department. Assignments at Warburg Invest Kapitalanlagegesellschaft, Warburg Hypothekenbank, and Hamburgische Immobilien Handlung, round out the trainee program.

Seminars on negotiation training, asset structuring, and quantitative finance bolster the job training our trainees receive. In addition to development events, the Warburg Group’s junior mentoring program for future professionals and managers provides a good opportunity for young employees to build their own networks. The trainees interact with the bank’s partners and other members of the Group’s management at junior mentoring program evening events.

Each trainee is paired with a member of management from our bank who acts as a personal mentor. Following the trainee program, which lasts for a maximum of two years, trainees are prepared for highly skilled and advanced positions at the Warburg Group thanks to the wide range of training they receive.

Prerequisites: our trainees are committed, ambitious, flexible, able to work under pressure, and reliable. They have a natural customer focus without sacrificing their integrity. They achieve success thanks to their persuasiveness and negotiating skills. A willingness to assume responsibility characterizes their professional and personal life.
