About the Program

Global Markets interns spend their first week in a comprehensive training program covering all aspects of the markets, geared toward acquiring the knowledge, terminology and technical skills required for the program. Interns may expect to review specific products and businesses, participate in case studies/simulations, and receive training on tools such as Excel and Bloomberg.

Interns will meet with representatives from each desk to begin the placement process, assisted by the campus recruiting team. Following a placement day in April, interns are allocated to dedicated desks, where they will spend nine weeks, allowing them to build significant knowledge in an area.

All interns are supported with a mentor to help structure their time at the bank and assist with networking opportunities. A dedicated desk coordinator will manage your daily workload, and provide feedback in formal reviews. This additional support is designed to present an inclusive view of the role and help qualify interns for consideration of a full-time role upon graduation. The summer internship is the bank's core hiring channel for the full-time Analyst class.

Degree Requirements

To be eligible, you will have completed or be due to complete a Bachelors, Masters or PhD qualification (or equivalent) in any discipline.

All applicants must be in their penultimate year of study, be available for the full 10 weeks and be able to start full-time employment in July 2018.
