At Grad Diary we always look for innovative opportunities for students and graduates. We have found a programme offered by Deutsche Bank in their Birmingham office which is a fantastic opportunity for graduates. Their Train to Hire scheme is a graduate internship open to those who have graduated in the last two years from any degree discipline. We spoke to Sean Sales, graduate recruiter at Deutsche Bank Birmingham, to tell us about the programme and the opportunities it can provide to those graduates looking for an opportunity within the banking industry.
