BlackRock offers placement opportunities for a duration of 12 months. This programme is for candidates required by their degree to complete a long-term internship, and graduating in 2025.

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.

This opportunity gives you a chance to work closely and add value to a specific team, set and complete objectives and be exposed to the culture and ethos at BlackRock. During the placement, you will develop new skills and gain valuable experience within the Asset Management industry. You will also have the opportunity to find out more about our full-time graduate opportunities.

Aladdin Client Services

Every day, the Aladdin Client Services team tackles the hardest, most sophisticated problems in FinTech. We utilise our in- depth understanding of Aladdin, our clients’ businesses, and the investment management process to provide world-class service to our rapidly-growing, global client base. We all studied different things and bring diverse skills and experiences to the table, but we share a serious passion for solving tough problems and keeping our clients happy.

What will you do as an analyst?

  • Answer questions and help our clients run their businesses on Aladdin: You will take phone calls, emails, and chats from industry practitioners at respected investment institutions. You will solve problems that matter, making direct and measurable difference to our clients. In the process, you will build technical, industry, and relationship skills.
  • Use technology to solve problems: We will teach you the skills you need to succeed, such as maneuvering relational databases and parsing product logs. After just your first few weeks on the desk, you will be using these skills to help clients and product teams make Aladdin better.
  • Educate users, demonstrate service insights, and relay user experience feedback to improve the client experience and our product: We believe that the best client service is proactive, not reactive. We are students of our own data and engage with our clients to keep problems from arising, rather than only dealing with issues that are brought to our attention.
  • Work on a global team, with a local presence: Our support model follows the sun – if a market is open somewhere in the world, so are we! You will get to work with teams across the world, while still engaging with a vibrant local team.

What capabilities are we looking for?

  • Analytical approach
  • Basic or intermediate coding and programming skills
  • Client Service
  • Critical thinking
  • Multitasking

Your learning & development will include:

  • We are laser focused on giving our Analysts the skills they need for a successful career in the Aladdin Business and BlackRock. During their second year, our Analysts have the opportunity to work on specialised projects with other Aladdin teams. These projects leverage their product, technical and client skills; launching them into impactful roles in our business.

Benefits

  • Employee Assistance Programme – free, confidential counselling
  • Volunteering opportunities
  • Discretionary annual bonus
  • Flexible Time Off
