Internships are the perfect preparation for a subsequent full time role. Nomura will extend full time offers to strong performers to return to the company the following year.

To apply for a full time position within the investment banking, global markets and corporate infrastructure divisions, candidates should be available for full time employment in July 2016.
The recruitment process for the graduate programme consists of three first round interviews (two sessions on competency and one case study) with junior representatives. If you are applying to internships, you will attend two first round interviews (one competency and one case study). If successful, the final round interviews for both full-time and internships will consist of four competency based interviews with senior representatives.
At Nomura our goal is to attract and develop exceptionally talented people who share our passion for individual excellence and our commitment to teamwork. We recruit graduates with a high level of academic and extra-curricular achievement, who will be able to withstand the rigours of a rapidly changing, demanding but ultimately rewarding environment. Fluency in English is essential and fluency in other languages is advantageous.
We assess candidates using a range of key competencies which include; problem solving, analytical skills, teamwork, leadership, communication skills, professional presence and initiative. All of these competencies are equally weighted and we look for evidence of these in your CV, cover letter and throughout the interview process. We will also need to be convinced of your interest and commitment to the financial services industry and to Nomura in particular.
