Save to shortlist Saved to shortlist Apply now

The Summer Internship Programme is for candidates in their penultimate year of study (graduating August 2023 - July 2024) and obtaining their Bachelor’s or Master’s degree.

Life at BlackRock

Wonder what it’s really like to work at BlackRock? Our employees from offices all over the world share their thoughts on what makes our culture so special and unlike any other financial services firm – and what’s kept them here.

Our Summer Internship Programme is designed to provide students a challenging, meaningful and supportive internship experience that replicates as closely as possible the experience of being a full-time BlackRock Analyst. The programme begins with a Summer Intern orientation which offers a thorough overview of the firm and the opportunity to hear from a number of senior leaders. Following orientation, interns receive on-the-job training and are given day-to-day responsibilities to contribute to their teams throughout the summer.

The programme also includes a speaker series, mentoring programme, and various networking opportunities. The campus recruiting team also partners very closely with the firm Employee Networks to ensure the summer interns can learn and interact with our employee networks and learn about our Inclusion & Diversity initiatives. The firm is highly committed to the Summer Internship Programme and it is the main pipeline into our Analyst Programme.  

Multi-Asset Strategies & Solutions

Do you have a zest for markets and for working across multiple asset classes? Are you searching for an exciting, multifaceted early career opportunity with the world's largest asset manager? Our multi asset solutions platform is crafted to uniquely deliver outstanding outcomes, better returns, increased convenience and improved transparency for our clients by navigating evolving markets, optimising portfolios, and incorporating diversity of perspective.

We deliver the outcomes our clients seek by listening objectively, eliminating boundaries to improve investment opportunities, embracing new ideas, and building innovative, flexible solutions for tomorrow's markets. Multi Asset Strategies encompasses a broad range of investment strategies all designed to deliver outcomes more consistently than can be readily achieved through a single asset class investment. The platform brings together over 30 years of expertise and 240 investors across distinct investment teams to capitalise on multiple sources of return and target distinct investment outcomes such as growth, income, absolute return and lifecycle investing.

What will you do as an analyst?

  • Develop a comprehensive understanding of asset classes, regions, sectors, industries, currencies and securities across the Multi-Asset Strategies investment platform
  • Participate in the development and implementation of portfolio construction, risk analytics, strategy evaluation and trading tools
  • Collaborate across Multi-Asset Strategies & Solutions to drive insights and share ideas that influence productive investment outcomes

  • Critical thinking
  • Client service

  • Basic or intermediate coding and programming skills
  • Interest in Research or Portfolio Management

Your learning & development will include:

We encourage our analysts to build positive relationships and make an impact, while applying technical curiosity to solve tough problems. All Multi Asset Strategies are rooted in the platform’s unified core investment beliefs. We start by understanding the client’s desired outcome, and then we deploy our Multi Asset class approach, and risk aware capabilities. As a new team member, you will be exposed to:

  • Blending fundamental and systematic research techniques to be able to broaden perspective and analyse the wealth of information
  • Exploring index, factor, and alpha building blocks in our quest for optimal portfolios
  • Analysing portfolios through a factor lens to better understand portfolio exposures
  • Developing thematic investment views and then learning how we express those views across our portfolios, often across multiple dimensions and asset classes

  • Volunteering opportunities
  • Discretionary annual bonus
  • Flexible Time Off

Next steps:

Once you submit your application you will immediately be invited to submit a Virtual Cover Letter and/or take a CodeVue assessment depending on the vacancy or vacancies you apply to. You must submit your Virtual Cover Letter and/or the CodeVue assessment within 5 calendar days, as failure to do so will result in your application being automatically withdrawn.
