One of the primary ways in which we identify the very best talent is via internships. These are paid programs aimed at penultimate-year students that run over the summer. Throughout the program, interns are exposed to a mixture of training, social events, and professional experiences. They also benefit from formal mentorships, volunteer opportunities, and lunch and learns with business leaders from across Citi. Our goal is to equip our interns with the skills and network necessary to embark on their professional careers.
“I had the privilege of interning at Citi over the 2018/19 summer. The program was designed to help us understand more about Citi, the operations of a global bank, and what part our respective roles play in the bigger picture. Interning within the investment banking division was challenging but equally rewarding, and I was fortunate to work in a team with a strong culture that values transparency, communication, and hard work.” - Josh Evans, BCMA Investment Banking Intern
Graduates join Citi as part of a 2 to 2.5 year program with structured rotations within their business areas. Citi is one of the few firms within Australia offering rotations, which removes the focus from building expertise around a specific area or function and instead emphasizes the importance of developing strong relationships, learning quickly, and adapting to new teams.
At the end of the rotational program, graduates are better equipped to decide where they wish to start their careers and build broad foundational knowledge, skills, and networks that can be relied upon at any point in their career.
“I chose to work for Citi because of its global footprint and the opportunity to work with high-performing teams around the world. Given Citi Australia is a lot smaller than our local counterparts, graduates get exposure to incredible experiences and our input is highly valued by management” – Christopher Lam, Global Consumer Bank Graduate
Citi offers both internships and full-time graduate programs across our Global Consumer Bank and Institutional Clients Group.
