A Career at Jefferies


Working at Jefferies is unique from other investment banks. We are a global, client-focused investment bank with an entrepreneurial environment where employees have the opportunity to make an immediate impact.

You’ll work side-by-side and be supported by some of the most experienced and successful investment bankers and finance professionals in the world at both a junior and senior level. You’ll be challenged. You’ll be engaged. And you’ll learn what you need to launch a career in investment banking.

Our student and graduate employees are the foundation to our success and are heavily involved in the day-to-day workflow at Jefferies. Each of our graduate employees experiences a hands-on approach to their development, with an opportunity to solve challenging and complex tasks alongside some of the best and brightest minds in the industry.


What We Look for in Candidates


Successful interns and analysts are able to multitask and manage a variety of projects in a dynamic, team-oriented environment. Candidates must demonstrate the highest levels of professionalism, along with strong analytical skills and attention to detail.

We seek talented and well-rounded individuals with a strong academic record and life achievements and a commitment to making meaningful contributions in a professional environment. We look for individuals who bring enthusiasm to the team and have an interest in pursuing a career in investment banking.

Given our UK and Continental European platform, proficiency in one or multiple European languages (including French, German, Italian, Swedish or Spanish) is a plus. A background in accounting or finance is not a prerequisite and we invite applications from students from a diverse subject arena.



Durham University is a key recruitment focus for Jefferies: look out for us at recruiting events throughout the year to learn more.
