INSTITUTIONAL CLIENTS GROUP
Banking Capital Market and Advisory
Citi’s Banking, Capital Markets and Advisory (BCMA) division provides comprehensive relationship coverage and a full suite of products and services in an effort to be the best possible financial partner to its institutional clients. We offer positions in the following areas:
Capital Markets is also sometimes known as ECM (Equity Capital Markets) or DCM (Debt Capital Markets). Capital Markets raises capital in the financial markets for our clients – ranging from multinationals to institutions or public sector organisations that want to expand their operations on a huge scale (across EMEA and beyond). We originate, structure, and execute new issues of capital (e.g., in an initial public offering or through bond issuance), manage existing liabilities, and perform a variety of other related services.
Citi’s Corporate Banking teams service the needs of the world’s largest
corporations, financial institutions, and governments. Corporate bankers build close relationships with their clients in order to develop a comprehensive understanding of the complex financial issues they face. As a result, they can deliver a full array of tailored solutions, from capital markets, loans, and derivatives to cash management, foreign exchange, and trade finance. We solve clients’ domestic and cross-border needs using our global network to deliver solutions right down to local levels.
Our Investment Banking teams work with major businesses, financial institutions, and governments the world over. They provide in-depth strategic and financial advice on acquisitions, disposals and debt, and equity capital raising. By enabling clients to reach their financial goals, we can drive industry change and influence the evolution of local, regional, and global economies.
Markets & Securities Services and Research
The quality and quantity of financial products and services in Markets & Securities Services are as sophisticated and diverse as the corporations, institutions, governments, and investors we serve. In Sales and Trading, we advise clients on some of the best investment opportunities in a range of markets, including equities, commodities, credit, futures, and FX, and we also buy, sell, and structure their investments for them.
Through our award-winning Investor Services, we deliver customized middle-office, custody, and investing and financing solutions to institutional, alternative, and wealth managers. For intermediaries, our Direct Custody and Clearing division provides unrivaled asset servicing and transaction processing capabilities.
Working with clients and colleagues worldwide was an exciting prospect. Now that I’m here, I see it’s the people that make Citi so great.
Citi Research focuses on delivering the highest quality company, sector, economic, and geographic insights to our clients globally.
The unit includes equity and fixed income research, economic and market analysis, and product specific analysis to help individual and institutional clients navigate a complex global marketplace.
Through 60 offices in 25 countries, Citi Private Bank provides ultra-high networth clients with sophisticated, exceptionally personalized wealth management expertise. We help meet their exclusive banking and investment needs, offering top lending advice and acting as trusted advisers to the most successful families and leaders in industry, finance, and culture.
Treasury and Trade Solutions
Treasury and Trade Solutions is an integral part of Citi’s Institutional Clients Group (ICG), serving public sector, corporate, and financial
institution clients in over 101 countries. Our innovative solutions help clients streamline and automate their processes, mitigate risk, and expand their global footprint, reduce financing costs, and secure timely transaction payments and commercial flow proceeds.
Our Finance teams include controllers, treasurers, strategists, planning and analysis specialists, and M&A and tax experts. Together, they oversee all financial reporting and controls that allow the global flow of capital into and out of our organisation. They work closely with global management teams and strategic partners to support Citi’s enterprise-wide activities.
Legal and Compliance
Legal careers at Citi offer a wealth of experience across a broad range of businesses, from consumer banking and credit to investment banking, and much more. We draw upon advanced knowledge of common law and expertise in civil law systems to provide legal support to various businesses, and provide counsel around implementing global and regional compliance initiatives, including standardized legal documentation and internal legal policies.
In a world that demands lightning-fast transaction speeds, pinpoint execution accuracy, and full visibility, Operations makes everything work – on time and on target. As the functional heart of our business, Operations ensures that global transactions flow smoothly, around the clock, wherever we do business. Without it, the daily clearance, settlement and execution of a trillion dollars’ worth of trades and the weekly movement of tens of billions of dollars in world currencies would come to a complete standstill.
Risk Management is an independent business unit that supports profitability, stability, and growth across Citi. Assessing key risks in credit, market, architecture, infrastructure, and capital allows us to develop solutions that manage risk in both the bank’s and our clients’ favour. In order to take intelligent risks with individual accountability, we need to understand market views deeply and work closely with global management teams.
Technology gives our bank a competitive advantage, whether in the complex, international multimillion-dollar trades we conduct every second, or the intricate trading strategies of the individual investor portfolios we support across the globe. By advancing our technological capabilities, we aim to deliver seamless services and build systems that will define the digital bank of tomorrow.
CONSUMER BANKING AND WEALTH MANAGEMENT
Citi has millions of individual consumer clients in EMEA. We deliver top-class global products and tailored service delivered directly onto their mobile device, in one of our branches and wealth centres, online or by phone. At different points in their lives, they will need to Borrow, Spend, Save, Invest, and Protect. Those aspirations change as they grow, and Citi is there when they need us. Our digital focus and forward compatible approach give our clients the ability to bank anywhere at any time.
Citi Commercial Banking provides global banking capabilities and services to mid-sized, trade-oriented companies within Citi’s footprint. As many of these clients expand internationally, Citi is in a position to support their growth by providing access to Citi’s full range of wholesale banking solutions.

Where will your first step take you?
There are a number of ways to join our EMEA Citi team:
Summer Analyst or Associate
One of the primary ways in which we identify the very best talent is through internships. These are paid programmes aimed at penultimate-year students (we will also consider finalists) which run for 10 weeks during summer. You’ll be exposed to a mixture of training, social events and professional experiences. At the end of the internship, we offer the best people a place on the full time graduate programme. Internships are available for analysts (undergraduate and master’s students) and associates (MBA students).
Similar to our summer programmes, our placements are long-term internships (anything from three to twelve months) that really put you at the heart of the business. Graduates who impress us over the course of their placements can expect to be offered a full time opportunity.
Full Time Analyst or Associate:
Open to finalists and graduates our full time programme provides the best training in the sector to help you become an active member of the team you join in the shortest time possible. The invaluable business, technical and leadership skills you’ll develop will help you thrive in the fast, multinational, dynamic environment that is Citi.
If you’re in your first year of a three-year undergraduate course or your second year of a four-year course, consider our Spring Insight programme. This one week work experience programme is designed to give you maximum exposure to Citi’s culture, business divisions, people and networks.
Through classroom based training, business specific work shadowing, social events and development challenges, you will get a taste of what a career at Citi looks like. Successful Spring participants will have the chance to be fast tracked to our summer internship programme.
Illustration shows the application process that successful candidates can expect to follow.
Do I need a degree in finance or economics to apply?
At Citi, we value diverse thinking and encourage students from all degree disciplines to consider our opportunities, and we provide full training to new joiners. Please be aware that certain programs require specific technical skills, so please read the online job vacancies thoroughly to ensure you meet the minimum entry criteria before applying.
Can I meet you on campus?
We regularly visit university campuses across the EMEA region as well as host virtual events, and you can find all our upcoming events at oncampus.citi.com under “Events”.
I graduate in 2023; which programs can I apply to?
We encourage students with two years remaining at University to apply to our Spring Insight Program. This program runs every spring and gives you the opportunity to get to know more about Citi through work shadowing one of our business teams.
I am in my final year (or have graduated) but have no finance experience; can I apply for a full-time position?
If you have completed an internship in a different but related industry, for example Professional Services, we would encourage you to apply to a full-time analyst program. If you wish to secure more finance experience, we will accept final year students and graduates into our summer analyst and placement programs.
What happens once I submit my application?
You will receive an email confirming the submission of your application. Your application will then be screened against our entry criteria. If you meet these criteria and the role is still available, you will be invited to take an online test. The time taken from application submission to online testing is variable. Candidates that pass the online test will enter a second screening phase (the length of this phase can vary), and short-listed candidates will be invited to interviews.
Can I apply if I require a visa to work in my location of choice?
In EMEA, we consider all candidates and will support relevant visa applications, if required. Any offer made to you will be conditional on you being granted the appropriate visa.
