About us

By ‘Connecting Markets East & West’, Nomura relies on its Technology to have a global presence in the Financial Services industry. Technology at Nomura involves working with, and designing, state-of-the-art information technology and risk management systems. These are the systems that can often give us that crucial, split-second edge over our competitors. Work ranges from infrastructure support and deployment to in-house development of complex modelling software and applications.

At Nomura we believe that having a diverse workforce is essential and therefore look to connect, recognise and develop women, in order to grow our business. This begins with the need to attract women who will contribute to the Firm’s continued success.

Graduate Opportunities

At Nomura, we offer a wide variety of programmes aimed to increase your exposure to our three divisions: Investment Banking, Global Markets and Corporate Infrastructure (Compliance, Operations, Risk, Finance & Technology). Through our spring insight programmes, summer internships, industrial placements and graduate schemes you will gain experience of working in a fast-paced environment; meet new people and develop a valuable network.

In Technology you will gain the opportunity to develop new applications that keep us at the forefront of technology. You’ll develop an impressive level of technical knowledge, using a range of technologies (Java, C#, C++, SQL, Python, Perl, JavaScript, HTML/CSS and others) and frameworks (Spring, Maven, Camel, WPF, Node, React, and many others). Depending on your role, you’ll gain an understanding of different financial products, and build a valuable knowledge of risk management techniques and live trade analysis.

How to apply

To apply to any of our programmes, you will need to complete a short application form, including three motivational questions and upload a copy of your CV – there is no need for a cover letter.
