This is a 3 month internship paying £20k pro rata with a view to convert to a permanent job.

How you can expect to spend your day:

You will join the business as a financial analyst intern, assisting with the development and production of a range of financial models which will form a key part in the company’s strategy and decision making. This is a great entry level internship for a recent graduate looking to gain commercial work experience in the technical side of corporate finance. 

Tasks you can expect to learn about and undertake include: 

  • You will be trained to use Bloomberg terminal.
  • Develop a clear understanding of the company’s client base, types of advisory service and target markets. 
  • Use industry standard tools like Bloomberg terminal to source private equity data on investment opportunities typically from the fintech, technology and leisure industries.  
  • Translate a set of hypotheses about the behaviour of markets into numerical predictions e.g. a company’s decision to invest a percentage of assets into a given stock will give an investment return of X percentage. 
  • Ensure the team are provided with high quality strategic advice and direction on financial strategy through effective modelling of business valuations, scenario planning, management decision making, mergers and acquisitions etc. 
  • Produce robust financial models as directed by the managing director to identify both the risk and opportunity for a given investment opportunity. 

The ideal intern’s personality and qualifications: 

  • Educated to degree level. 
  • Excellent grammar and writing.
  • Someone looking to develop a successful career in the finance sector, ideally on the more technical or business analyst side. 
  • A high level of numerical reasoning. 
  • Strong Excel skills e.g. macros, pivot tables, V lookups etc.
  • Comfortable sourcing and working with large data sets.
  • Happy working in a small team which is growing well and open to changing direction as work requires. 
  • A positive attitude to work and someone eager to develop a range of new skills in this sector. 
  • A high attention to detail.  

What are the perks of interning at this company? 

  • This is a great internship for any recent graduate with an analytical skill set, who likes working with data and wants to gain commercial work experience in the corporate finance sector. 
  • You will be given greater responsibility by joining a smaller company rather than by joining a larger firm which will fast track your professional work experience.
