Sales and Trading Summer Analyst
Start Date: June 2020
Length: 9 weeks
It's where we develop and deliver customised products and solutions for large investors and financial institutions. It's a fast, fascinating and incredibly dynamic place to build a career - and you'll be part of a team that's key to the growth of our clients' businesses and our own. To do well over the nine weeks, you'll need a flair for relationships as well as a talent for analysis and numbers.
What to expect
Expect a steep learning curve and lots of growth. It all starts with intensive training that gives you an essential platform for gaining skills and knowledge. Then you’ll head to your desk, where you’ll get to grips with the intricacies of the global markets and follow a structured programme that includes project-based work.
How you'll develop
Throughout the summer, our support will help you perform at your best. In our team-driven environment, you’ll find that mentoring happens naturally and friendships are easily formed. Senior and junior mentors will guide your progress, with networking and social events providing a fully rounded experience. Halfway through, you’ll get constructive feedback on your performance. By the time the summer’s over, you’ll walk away with a solid understanding of our team, our culture and possible opportunities within it. If you perform very well and meet our hiring criteria, you could have a full-time role waiting for you after graduation.
Who thrives here
Resourceful, team-oriented people from any educational background who have an interest in global economics. You’ll need to be enthusiastic too, and have a keen eye for detail plus solid interpersonal skills. We’ll also look for an entrepreneurial spirit – often shown through extracurricular activities.
