Credit Suisse is a leading global wealth manager with strong investment banking capabilities. Headquartered in Zurich, Switzerland, we have a global reach with operations in about 50 countries and employ more than 45,000 people from over 150 different nations. Embodying entrepreneurial spirit, Credit Suisse delivers holistic financial solutions to our clients, including innovative products and specially tailored advice. Striving for quality and excellence in our work, we recognize and reward extraordinary performance among our employees, provide wide-ranging training and development opportunities, and benefit from a diverse range of perspectives to create value for our clients, shareholders and communities. We are Credit Suisse.

We Offer

Our Internship Program runs for 10 weeks, from June to August and is open to penultimate year students graduating in 2021 who are passionate about gaining an insight into Global Markets (GM).

GM provides opportunities in Sales, Trading and Structuring across a range of products covering Equities (CASH, Prime, Derivatives), Credit (Global Credit Products, Securitized Products) and International Trading Solutions (FX, Rates, EM, Financing and Structured Credit).

In GM you could be involved in a range of activities; from brokerage, risk management, hedging products and market making of equities and equity-related securities (derivatives, convertibles, futures and options), to sales, structuring and trading of instruments spanning the credit spectrum (bonds, loans, credit, FX and derivative products).

During the internship you are allocated to a rotation of desks (3x 3-weeks) - either a combination of functions (Sales, Trading or Structuring) or a rotation in one function across different products (e.g. Cash sales, Prime Services Sales, Credit Sales). Allocations are communicated prior to start date - there is no need for any desk preferences to be stated at application stage.

You Offer

You’ll need to be in your penultimate year of study for a Bachelors or Masters qualification (or equivalent) in any discipline, and be available for the full 10 weeks and be able to start full-time employment in July 2021.

While our employees have a wide range of experiences and interests, they share an intellectual curiosity, a desire to achieve and a pattern of excellence and achievement. Whatever your background, you’ll need to be:

  • Client-focused and committed to developing creative solutions
  • A leader who naturally attracts followers
  • A critical thinker with excellent problem-solving skills
  • A self-starter who is able to envision long-term goals and ways to attain them
  • A collaborative team member who builds excellent relationships
  • An articulate communicator who also recognizes the importance of listening
  • Analytical and logical, with raw intellectual ability

Assessment Centers are held from October, with hires made on a rolling basis. Unless you are informed of an outcome earlier, your application may be kept in consideration until hiring is completed, which is typically around January 2020. Please ensure your resume document is clearly identified in your application; a brief cover letter can be submitted but there is no need to provide transcripts or other documents.

Given large volumes individual feedback and updates will not be possible, however general status updates will be sent to all applicants from time to time.
Credit Suisse is an equal opportunity employer. Welcoming diversity gives us a competitive advantage in the global marketplace
