Investments Summer Analyst Programme

BlackRock was founded by eight entrepreneurs who wanted to start a very different company. One that combined the best of a financial leader and a technology pioneer. And one that focused many diverse views on a singular purpose: to create a better financial future for our clients - companies, governments, and millions of individuals saving for retirement, their children’s educations, and a better life.

Being part of BlackRock means being part of a community of smart, ambitious people. People who value diversity of thought, perspective and background, who believe everyone has a voice at the table. So, whatever your background, whatever and wherever you’re studying, there’s a place for you here.

Our Summer Analyst Programme is an eight-week internship for candidates graduating in 2019, and obtaining their bachelor’s degree or their master’s degree with less than 18 months' full-time, relevant work experience.

The Summer Analyst Programme is designed to provide students with an exciting, supportive and fun internship experience, which mirrors life as an Analyst at BlackRock. You’ll have real-world responsibilities throughout the summer, in addition to professional development, networking and social events.
