Merrill Lynch's Graduate / Analyst programme is a 12 month rotation through which graduates will gain an in-depth introduction to the firm, its culture and global reach, alongside other newly hired analysts. Graduates will rotate through Global Markets, Investment Banking and Research. The training will include full instruction on all relevant tools, techniques and working practices. Graduates will also receive a solid grounding in all business areas as they develop their professional skills and teamwork capabilities. Once graduates join a business line, they will take on real responsibility from an early stage. There will be exposure to ongoing development opportunities throughout the programme and graduates will be encouraged to expand their abilities through on-the-job learning, structured training and study towards professional qualifications. The company fosters an inclusive and supportive culture, and encourages and rewards hard work.
Strong academic qualifications and quantitative skills are important. Equally important are initiative, strategic and creative thinking, communication skills and a genuine interest in the financial markets.
