Students & interns

We invest in talent across the Nordics

Are you a hard-worker and perhaps top of your class? Great, because as an intern you get to work with finance professionals who are among the best within their field. We recruit talented people who can help us stay number one in the Nordic region.

However, your personality, your character and drive, are equally as important as your academic record. So, top grades is not a prerequisite to join us. If you’re hard-working, curious and eager to learn “everything” there is to know about the financial markets, you would be an ideal candidate.

The student and internship programmes vary from country to country, but the outcome is the same: You will gain valuable experience and develop your professional and personal skills – not to mention the wide network of contacts who will help give you a head start to a career after graduation.

Our job openings are posted on where you can sign up and be notified when relevant positions are announced. You can also stay up to date by following us on Markets LinkedIn page, and read one of the many blogs featuring student life in Markets, (click on the pictures below for inspiration).
