2021 EMEA Internship Programme

The Programme 

Corporate bankers routinely work with clients on confidential and complex financial matters. Therefore, attention to detail, intellectual curiosity, problem solving skills, confidence, interpersonal skills and the ability to build credibility from the outside are all crucial attributes.  
If you have a natural business curiosity, are proactive in completing your work and can communicate with confidence, you may have all the foundations for becoming an excellent corporate banker. Excel and PowerPoint familiarity are also highly desirable and will aid you in your role. 
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 June/July Internship programme for undergraduate university students offers hands on or virtual (dependent on COVID regulations at the time), practical work experience in one of our key business areas and offers a real insight into what working at Citi is like. 
Your time here will look something like this: 

  • Hands on work experience as a member of a specific business unit within the bank. 
  • Get a solid understanding of the broad range of financial services and products Citi provides. 
  • Learn to build financial models and develop corporate finance solutions for our clients - We strive to create the best outcomes for our clients with financial ingenuity that leads to solutions that are simple, creative and responsible. 
  • Conduct research and analyze industry trends to support our bespoke advice and superior value proposition.
  • Participate in client development where Citi aims to be the best banking partner for our clients by delivering differentiated client experiences and maintaining a reputation for excellence and integrity that spans everything we do.   

We provide you with the knowledge and skills you need to succeed. Whether you’ve got prior financial industry experience or not, this internship provides an opportunity to work for one of the world’s largest financial services organizations. If your internship is successful, you could be considered for one of Citi’s full-time graduate programmes including the CFA programme. These uniquely designed full-time programmes place university graduates in specific functional teams within the bank. 
Our full-time programmes start with extensive classroom training and also the opportunity to complete globally recognized qualifications. In addition, winter interns will gain visibility of the permanent positions available to graduates that we have within the bank, both locally in South Africa or at one of Citi’s international offices.
