Royal Bank of Canada is a premier investment bank that provides a focused set of products and services to institutions, corporations, governments and high net worth clients in over 100 countries.

We understand that the first steps in any career in finance are critical. With that in mind, we have the right formula to provide you with the opportunities and professional development you need to turn those first steps into a rewarding career.

You’ll be part of a company with a superior financial track record, credit rating and reputation. In fact, we maintained a high credit rating throughout the recent financial crisis.

The European component of the Global Markets Summer Intern Programme is run out of our London office in the heart of the City, overlooking the Thames.

Interns will gain hands-on experience within Global Markets and career-building mentorship. Every year we recruit successful applicants into our London office for many of our debt capital markets, sales, trading and research businesses. There are opportunities in many areas to suit the interests of driven and focused students.

Providing a solid understanding

You will receive mid and end-of-summer reviews as well as constructive feedback from your business manager throughout your placement.

The programme also features Capital Markets Speaker Series – regular information sessions given by our leading market professionals as well as trading simulation activities. There are also several educational and social events throughout the eight week programme.

Great care and resources have been devoted to ensure that at the end of the programme you have a solid understanding of the elements necessary for a successful career in Global Markets.


We are not prescriptive on the subject of your degree; however, we will be looking for a minimum 2.1 degree (expected). Whether you’re a philosophy student or an engineer, we’re more interested in an agile intellect, strong numerical and analytical skills, an awareness of global economic issues and a genuine interest in the international financial markets. Creativity, logic, interpersonal skills and inner drive all come into the equation.

Any additional languages, especially European, are a strong advantage but by no means a pre-requisite when applying.
