See what the internship program Kick Start is.

Are you eager to complement your lecture room knowledge with real experience and see what the world of banking looks like from the inside? Then do an traineeship at Swedbank!

Swedbank has been offering traineeships to students from various fields, e.g. economy, IT and real and social sciences students for many years. After the end of their traineeship, many trainees find permanent positions in Swedbank immediately or return to work here soon after.

What do we look for in a trainee?

We appreciate initiative and an ability to learn fast. Previous work or traineeship experience is an advantage. We also find it beneficial if you have excelled in other extracurricular activities. An ability to speak Russian in addition to Estonian and English is an asset, too.

If you want an awesome experience, do your traineeship with us!

  • We have a great work environment and lovely, supportive colleagues.
  • We have summer programme Kick Start that includes a range of events, seminars, work shadowing days and more. All in the name of transforming your traineeship into something more than simply work experience.
  • You get to enjoy a variety of employee discounts.
  • A great number of our trainees have been very happy with the experience.

Bear in mind…

  • We offer traineeships throughout the year – larger scale applying period in early spring.
  • A traineeship usually lasts to 12 months, depending on the needs of a particular department.
  • You get to work on real tasks during your traineeship.
  • Both part-time and full-time traineeships are available.
  • Traineeship positions are determined during the recruitment process – we try to combine the wishes and preferences of trainees and departments.
  • Our traineeships are very popular and we try to meet with as many applicants as possible. As such, reaching a final decision may take longer than expected.

For example, we received 900 applications in 2016 – of whom 102 were awarded traineeships.

Internship program Kick Start


Year after year, we see how many smart, hard-working graduates we have at Swedbank. Getting an education while working is a complex and time-consuming process. Swedbank values all of its employees who successfully complete this journey very highly.

Traineeships for employees

Many students have trouble finding an traineeship position. We want to make the educational lives of our employees easier by helping them find a potential traineeship position in Swedbank.

Thesis competition

The aim of this traditional competition is to encourage our workers to explore fields that are important to the bank and reward the best Master’s and doctoral graduates with bonuses.

Graduates event

At the end of each academic year, we acknowledge outstanding employees who have acquired higher education at the same time as working for us.

YPE youth club

2014 was an innovative year for young Swedbankers. We founded our own club – Young Professionals Estonia (YPE). It brings together our brightest stars up to the age of 30 (of whom we have more than 200 at present). The club aims to involve young people in activities both within and outside of the bank so that they can extend their communication network and gain knowledge, skills and experience.

Together we...

  • colleagues from all over Estonia
  • ... take part in charity projects
  • ... go on hikes and play sports
  • ... visit business partners
  • ... have fun!

A great number of our trainees have been very happy with the experience.
