What does a day in Bank of Ireland look like?

Apart from being a lending business, Corporate Banking in a nutshell is the relationship management of a portfolio of borrowers which can include liaising with customers in your portfolio, other lenders, lawyers and various other departments within the Bank. All of this is pivotal to maximising the management of the portfolio.

A typical day for a graduate in Corporate Banking includes writing credit papers, compiling regulatory and credit returns and supporting customers with day-to-day queries regarding the management of their facilities.

What is the best thing about your job?

The best aspect of working in Corporate Banking is definitely the people and the level of responsibility you are given from the outset. As a graduate, the work can seem a bit intimidating at first but the level of support and mentoring you are given really sets the bank apart. Because of the high level of team work, graduates are involved in almost all aspects of the work in Corporate Banking which is really great in terms of personal and professional development.

What challenges you in your job? 

Understanding all the moving parts in Corporate Banking is definitely one of the most challenging aspects of the job for a graduate, however this is also one of the things that makes it exciting. As Bank of Ireland is the number 1 Corporate Bank in the country, you will be exposed to some of the largest transactions whilst being awarded the opportunity to work on a portfolio of ‘household name’ customers. The work isn’t just about the relationship management of your customers, you also get the opportunity to liaise with various other counterparties including other lenders and lawyers.

What gets you up in the morning?

Everyday brings new and exciting challenges, but what really motivates me to come into work every morning is the team.
