Capula Summer Internship Programme

This is an exciting opportunity to be part of the team of a world- renowned and dynamic global organisation.

We offer full summer internships across our offices in Europe, US and Asia. The internships typically run from mid-June to late August. As an intern, you will combine trading and research as a key player in our front office team and learn about the evaluation of financial variables, market conditions, and economic data and trends, leading directly to trading decisions. Additionally, you will work on a project to be presented to senior management towards the end of your internship. We develop our colleagues through coaching and training to help them build long-term careers with us.

During the programme you will receive training and hear presentations from senior partners and the managers of front office and support teams, giving you the opportunity to network within the organisation and with other interns, and to gain an understanding of how the different functions work together.

We have a multi-year record of offering exceptionally qualified individuals, upon completion of their internship, full-time positions in a variety of areas, including trading, strategy and risk management. Interns who perform especially well during the summer will automatically become candidates for the Capula Analyst Programme (see the "Graduates" page), and may be offered a position at the end of summer or shortly thereafter.

What we look for:

  • Students working towards undergraduate, masters, or doctoral degrees in a quantitative discipline
  • Excellent quantitative and analytical skills accompanied by critical thinking and intellectual curiosity
  • A consistently strong academic record
  • Outstanding interpersonal and communication skills
  • An interest in working in a highly dynamic environment

The recruitment process is typically as follows:

  • Online application
  • HR interview via video conference
  • Technical interview via video conference
  • Final interviews with partners and senior managers

Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis and we encourage you to apply as soon as you are prepared.

Capula provides a competitive salary, visa sponsorship and a competitive benefits package.
