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.

Our Operations services include internal and external clients and covers key processes across all asset classes.  It can be a very demanding and challenging working environment as we play a key role in safeguarding against the risk of loss resulting from inadequate or failed internal processes, systems and from external events.  We must therefore ensure we are able to process the business with high levels of control and efficiency.

We are committed to hiring the best graduates as we understand the value of growing talent from within the Summer Intern Programme and the significance that this diversity brings to our workforce.

Programme Details

Our Operations Summer Intern programme offers the opportunity to join an Operations team throughout the programme, gaining hands-on experience and working alongside people who have a wealth of knowledge.  You can demonstrate your skills from the offset and will receive constructive direction and feedback throughout your placement.

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 a Speaker Series – regular information sessions given by our leading market professionals. 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 Operations at RBC.

What do we look for?

We are not prescriptive on the subject of your degree, however, we will be looking for a minimum (predicted) 2:1 degree. 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.
