2019 Technology Competition

Register your interest in our student technology competition to be in with a chance to win an internship.

Do you want a paid summer internship? Tell us about climate change

This year’s student technology competition is all about data and climate change.

We want students, aged 16 to 18, to show us how they would use data to measure the impact of climate change on banks, insurers and other financial institutions.

More information on this year’s competition, including details of the task that students will need to complete, will be available soon. Please register your interest by emailing with your name, school and how you heard about the competition, and we’ll send you full details of this year’s challenge and let you know when you can enter. 

The competition will open later this month and you’ll then have until late December to complete the task and enter the competition.

The winners will secure a paid internship with us in summer 2020.

Questions?

Want to ask us something about the competition or what we’re looking for? You can email us at tech.early.careers@bankofengland.co.uk.
