• NCB 2019 Innovation Internship

The National Commercial Bank (NCB) is seeking big thinkers and tech stars to be a part of the financial firm's digital and agile movement through its Innovation Internship.

The eight-week programme invites the best and brightest university students to gain work experience, and find digital solutions to consumer challenges in real time while earning a competitive salary, and with the prospect of joining the NCB team after graduation.

The bank says the Innovation Internship is one of the ways it invests in the Caribbean's brightest young talent. It provides high-quality work experience which exposes interns to agile software development, design thinking, analytics, and a hands-on opportunity to develop working prototypes that have the potential to transform financial services.

Fifteen applicants will be selected for the internship, which runs from June 17 – July 26.

Applications close June 2.
