Start date: 3rd September
Royal Bank of Canada is a premier investment bank that provides a focused set of products and services to institutions, corporations, governments and high net worth clients in over 100 countries.
We understand that the first steps in any career in finance are critical. With that in mind, we have the right formula to provide you with the opportunities and professional development you need to turn those first steps into a rewarding career.
You'll be part of a company with a superior financial track record, credit rating and reputation. In fact, we maintained a high credit rating throughout the recent financial crisis.

The role will work closely with other teams within GELP, which means that you will get broad exposure to the entire equity derivatives business. The role will implement rapid technology solutions for GELP, and interact with the operations, compliance, and risk departments to assist in their control of GELP activity. The successful candidate will contribute the enhancement and support of all existing spreadsheets, and review/improve existing code for robustness and performance.
Interns will gain hands-on experience within Equity Derivatives and career-building mentorship, and will have access to senior RBC Capital Markets staff. This Internship is initially for a 12 month period but could lead to a permanent role.
Great care and resources have been devoted to ensure that at the end of the programme you are exposed to tasks and learning to give you a solid understanding of the elements necessary for a successful career in software development.
The European component of the GELP Programme is run out of our London office in the heart of the City, overlooking the Thames.
