G-Research is Europe’s leading quantitative finance research firm. We hire the brightest minds in the world to tackle some of the biggest questions in finance. We pair this expertise with machine learning, big data, and some of the most advanced technology available to predict movements in financial markets.

This internship is available for 3 or 6 months, ending in September 2021. Please note, due to our desire to convert the top of our intern cohort into our graduate programme we are only able to consider applications from those graduating in 2023. For example, students on a 4 year sandwich course, will have completed their first & second year at university, they then spend a year with us, then go back for a year before graduating.  

The role

This is a great opportunity to gain experience in the growing field of data analytics while making a real contribution to the quality of decision making in a market-leading company.

Data is at the heart of our business. The ability to use the information available to us to drive management decisions is a key form of competitive advantage for the firm, making our data analytics team a key business function.

The data analytics team operates a world-class business information platform using Tableau, Alteryx and other tools to create a set of dynamic reports used by individuals across the firm, from individual teams to senior management.
