Impact from day one

Everything you do will happen in real-time. Things don’t stay the same for long in our world – and the decisions you make during your time with us will affect our clients, your colleagues, and your future. The people we look for don’t just rise to the challenge of having genuine influence from early on. They relish it. From managing the processes and risks involved in delivering our products and services, to maintaining standards and quality across the firm, you’ll work on important projects that change the way we operate – globally. 

As an Operations Analyst, you’ll play an integral part in their team from day one, providing the strategic and tactical support needed to make sure we maintain – and build on – our strong reputation. Our businesses operate within a rapidly changing environment that will demand the best from you. In return for your commitment, you’ll gain all the business and technical skills required for an outstanding future within Operations at our firm.

Working in one of our major business lines and core functional groups, your responsibilities will change as quickly as the markets you work with. Building your skills in areas including settlements, trade support, regulatory management, anti-money laundering investigations or fraud / claims, our program provides an exceptional platform to begin a career in operations. And with responsibility from day one, you’ll get a first-hand feel for the impact that operations has on the wider firm.

You can join us in many different areas of our organization, depending on which region you work in – including Asset Management, Community and Consumer Banking, Commercial Banking, Corporate and Investment Bank or in our Corporate functions.

Learn from the best – training and development

Working alongside senior Operations colleagues, during the early stages of your career you’ll discover how Operations both drives the firm’s businesses and enhances its capabilities. Through a variety of on-the-job training and structured development opportunities, you’ll learn from some of the best strategic minds in the industry. We have a commitment to nurturing future leaders – meaning we can advise and support you with career management, coaching and networking, on top of the fantastic opportunities you’ll have day-to-day.

Your training doesn’t stop there, however. During the entirety of the program, you’ll work through a range of modules aimed at:

  • Developing your knowledge of financial markets, our business areas and our products
  • Exploring and understanding the attitudes, skills and behaviors that will maximize your effectiveness
  • Building an understanding of your own strengths and development needs

Upon completion, you’ll be ready to take on every challenge that working in a firm like ours brings.

If you’ve studied another discipline, you can show us your potential through specific modules you’ve taken, work experience, or extracurricular activities.
