You're the brains behind our work.

You’re ready to bring your knowledge from the classroom to the boardroom and Citi wants to help you get there. Whether it’s honing your skills or building your network, we know that success can’t come without growth. Our programs equip you with the knowledge and training you need to play a valuable role on your team and establish a long-term career here. At Citi, we value internal mobility and career growth is not a question of if, but when.

Citi’s Institutional Clients Group (ICG) is looking for placement analysts to join the Investment Banking team in London in February. The Investment Banking group advises corporate clients who want to raise funds in capital markets and who need strategic support in financial transactions. Initiatives you may be working on with clients include mergers, acquisitions, divestitures, financial restructurings, underwriting and distributing equity, debt and derivative securities. If none of these terms make sense right now, that’s ok! Our placement is designed to help you increase your knowledge, so whatever your degree is in we will give you the training and support you need to excel.

Your time here will look something like this...

Analyze financial data and develop financial models including company valuations, discounted cash flow analysis, financing and comparative analyses

Create and finalize new business development presentations

Coordinate tasks with internal and external working teams

Prepare required internal documentation e.g. control and compliance regulations

We provide you with the knowledge and skills you need to succeed.

We’re committed to teaching you the ropes.
