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.

Citi is looking for summer analysts to join the Markets team in London. Markets at Citi provides world-class solutions that are as sophisticated and diverse as the needs of the corporates, institutions, governments and individual investors we serve in 160 countries and territories. We work on trading floors in over 80 countries, enriching client relationships around the clock. The breadth and depth of our underwriting, sales and trading, and distribution capabilities span asset classes and currencies, sectors and industries. And our expertise covers a vast array of products including equities, commodities, credit, futures and FX. If none of these terms make sense right now, that’s ok! Our internship is designed to help you increase your knowledge and support and training will be provided to help you excel.
We provide you with the knowledge and skills you need to succeed.
We’re committed to teaching you the ropes. The 10 week summer analyst program starts in June and begins with a one week training program in London. You will then complete two rotations with different desks. After submitting an application you will be asked to select which area of Markets you are most interested in; Sales, Trading/Structuring, Research or Quantitative analysis.
We will use this information to help align you to the most appropriate recruitment process. If successful, your summer rotations will be decided by desk availability and your stated preference, but you will be encouraged to experience desks across Markets. Successful summer analysts will be considered for a full time position after graduation.
