Summer internship

Our summer internships last for eight weeks between June and August in Oslo or London. They give current students an opportunity to gain work experience at one of the world’s largest and most progressive international investment funds.

Just as we invest for the long term, we take a long-term perspective when it comes to our staff. An internship could be the start of a long career at the fund.

As an intern, you will have a unique opportunity to contribute to the fund early on and to learn from top professionals. Candidates who perform well in the programme may also be fast-tracked onto our two-year rotational talent programme.

During the internship, you will receive a full introduction to the organisation. You will meet senior managers and employees from across the organisation and our different offices. You will have a variety of development opportunities, including skills-based boot camps, team projects and a lunchtime lecture series from some of our top people. There will also be social events and team activities.

A dedicated manager will set your day-to-day tasks and support you with your projects. At the end of the six weeks, you will be invited to present your work to your team and senior managers.

I want the fund to be the number one choice for students, says our CEO Nicolai Tangen.

Hear why he thinks this is a unique opportunity for you:

We are looking for talented people with diverse backgrounds and mindsets who are comfortable taking risks. We strive to have an environment where we do not fear failure, as failure helps us learn and improve. We look for and celebrate diversity – the more diverse we are, the more creative we can be and the better the results we can achieve.

This programme is for current students who have:

  • Initiative, curiosity and a desire to learn
  • A keen interest in the fund and a career here
  • An understanding of the fund’s mission and mandate, its importance to the Norwegian people and how you can support this
  • A strong team mindset
  • A high degree of flexibility and an international outlook
  • Resilience and an ability to take risks

Application process

The intern positions are recruited every autumn, joining Norges Bank Investment Management the following summer. To apply, you are required to complete an online application form. We ask some basic motivational questions, and for your CV and academic transcripts. Please ensure that your CV and academic transcripts are uploaded as one document. You are also required to enter your preferred type of role when completing your application.

Please note: Applications via e-mail or after the deadline will not be accepted. To be eligible, you must be able to work in Europe/Norway. We are unable to offer visa sponsorship.

Selection process

The strongest applicants will be invited to complete an initial HR interview. Further, selected candidates will be invited to a virtual assessment centre. This normally consists of a group exercise, a case study, and both technical and general interviews. You will meet senior managers, current graduates and HR representatives. 

We will invite the top candidates for final interviews with the relevant teams at Norges Bank Investment Management before we make our offers for the positions.
