Global Markets overview
Nomura’s Global Markets division handles client transactions for financial institutions, corporates, governments and investment funds around the world. We act as market makers, trading in fixed income and equity securities, including currencies, interest rates and credit in cash, derivatives and structured products. We have taken market-leading positions across the globe by leveraging the strength of our talent, client relationships and technology.
We offer a nine-week Summer Internship for penultimate and final year students interested in learning about the banking business. The programme will provide you with the opportunity to develop your technical knowledge, gain valuable on-the-job training, understand our culture and create new networks.
The first week of the internship is class-room based training which is provided to enhance your key technical skills and will enable you to perform on the desk during the internship. Following the training week, you will join one of our divisions for the remaining of the internship and complete tasks at a similar level of a first year Analyst. At the end of the internship, strong performers will receive offers to join our Graduate Programme.
Global Markets Summer Analysts are provided with the opportunity to complete two rotations across Trading, Structuring and Sales.
Additional sessions during the internship include soft skill sessions, product presentations, business overviews as well as social events.
Summer Analysts will receive extensive training to enhance the skills that they need to perform well during their internship. The programme includes training in Financial Markets, Bloomberg, Excel, Conduct Risk and a variety of division specific activities.
Throughout the Internship Programme you will be supported both by a buddy, mentor and dedicated programme management team.
