Description & Requirements

Berenberg – European Equities – Summer Internship programme 2023

How does the Programme Work?

At Berenberg we believe talented people are the key to our success. We are looking to hire summer interns onto our 8-week programme into our European Equities department.

During the first week you will have an induction period, with talks from business leaders, classroom-based training around the technical aspects of the role, and a general induction to Berenberg as a company.

You will then be placed within a research team where you will gain insightful business exposure and receive invaluable and comprehensive training, and will also get some exposure to the Sales team and their activities.

You will also be allocated a senior member of the team who you can discuss any queries or concerns with and ensure that you get the mentoring and support that you need to get the most out of the placement. You will assist them in analysis of the sector, producing research notes and presentations. You will also be collating relevant market macro and micro news-flow on a timely basis.

Stand-out interns may be fast-tracked to interview with senior management in order to secure a place on our International Graduate Programme, starting in October 2024.
