holiday jobs and summer internships

Do you also offer holiday jobs for school pupils or summer internships?

In our view, it makes more sense to offer posts at RBI and its subsidiaries to people who have already passed their school-leaving examinations and obtained the qualification for university entrance (known as Matura in Austria). We therefore focus on students in higher education (where we do offer summer internships, if applicable). Find out more about our general entry-level options.

recruitment process duration

How long does the entire application and recruitment process take? Is it possible to skip certain steps?

We have outlined our application process in detail. The duration depends on the job offered and the number of incoming applications. In certain circumstances, it is possible to skip individual steps.

We offer a comprehensive, award-winning trainee programme that includes experience abroad: Corporate Banking at RBI. Find out more about this programme in our entry options section.

i don't have all the listed qualifications

Should I still apply for the job if I don't meet all the requirements listed?

Don't let this put you off. If you have the majority of the qualifications listed, you will certainly still have a chance. This always depends on the post and the number of applicants.

banking terminology

I haven't worked in banking before. How can I get some basic information and terminology?

For all those who are new to the industry, we have compiled a banking glossary where you can read more on the most important banking terminology.

language skills

How important are language skills if I want to apply to RBI?

This depends on the specific post. In general, English is our main corporate language, so this will always be an important factor. Other languages required are set out in detail in the respective job offers. This will include the level required, such as native speaker, proficient, advanced or below.
