What opportunities do you have?

There are a number of ways to join our Capital Markets Origination team.

Summer Analyst

One of the primary ways in which we identify the very best talent is through internships. These are paid programmes aimed at penultimate-year students (we will also consider finalists) which run for 10 weeks during summer. You’ll be exposed to a mixture of training, social events and professional experiences. At the end of the internship, we offer the best people a place on the full time graduate programme. Internships are available for analysts (undergraduate and master’s students) and associates (MBA students).

Full Time Analyst

Open to finalists and graduates our analyst programme provides the best training in the sector to help you become an active member of the team you join in the shortest time possible. The invaluable business, technical and leadership skills you’ll develop will help you thrive in the fast, multinational, dynamic environment that is Citi.

Placement Analyst

Similar to our summer programmes, our placements are long-term internships (anything from three to twelve months) that really put you at the heart of the business. Graduates who impress us over the course of their placements can expect to be offered a full time opportunity.


If you’re in your first year of a three-year undergraduate course or your second year of a four-year course, consider our Spring Insight programme. This one week paid work experience programme is designed to give you maximum exposure to Citi’s culture, business divisions, people and networks. Through class room based training, business specific work shadowing, social events and development challenges, you will get a taste of what a career at Citi looks like. Successful Spring participants will have the chance to be fast tracked to our summer internship programme.

What qualifications do I need?

At Citi, we value diverse thinking and encourage students from all degree disciplines to consider our opportunities and provide full training to new joiners. We do require you to have achieved certain grades, and can find more detail on our job vacancies.
