Breaking new ground means bringing the unexpected to the table. Looking past normal. And coming up with new ideas that change the world. At Citi, we support people who use their imagination like the Garden Bridge Trust, a group that saw a tree-lined path where others saw a bridge. Their idea: a floating garden. It’s a project that gives visitors and residents a beautiful walk over the Thames from South Bank to Temple Station, and provides environmental, transport and economic benefits along the way.
The idea’s so captivating we’re committing to it. With a history of helping urban projects go from blue sky to blueprint, we look forward to lending our banking and funding expertise to help the Garden Bridge Trust see their plan come to fruition. Because progress means more than what you do – it means how you do it. Proud to support the Garden Bridge as Official Banking Partner. CASE STUDY CASE STUDY 09 08 MAKING CONNECTIONS.

Operations In a world that demands lightning-fast transaction speeds, pinpoint execution accuracy and full visibility, Operations makes everything work – on time and on target. As the functional heart of our business, Operations ensures that global transactions flow smoothly, around the clock, wherever we do business.

NOW THAT I’M HERE I SEE IT’S THE PEOPLE THAT MAKE CITI SO GREAT.” Ashley, Analyst ECM, CMO GLOBAL BANKING STARTS HERE.
AAMIR The environment and the people I work with make Citi an exciting place to be. Every day presents new challenges and opportunities — the learning curve never ends. MY AREA I help senior bankers work with our clients to develop and execute their strategic objectives. This includes the origination and the execution of M&A, equity and debt transactions. We have worked on some big deals. In fact, we won Deal of the Quarter across Citi for a multibillion dollar M&A transaction in oil and gas, the largest deal of its kind in 14 years.
MY JOURNEY I started as a management analyst in the Moscow office, rotating through different departments in the Institutional Clients Group. When I first joined, I realised that Citi was where I wanted to be. After two years in Moscow, I was given a great opportunity to enjoy a one-year rotation in Energy Investment Banking, which is where I work to this day. MY ADVICE Push yourself outside your comfort zone. Challenging yourself to go further will help you accomplish your client, business and personal goals. Every time you feel you are at your limit, go one step more.
Citi operates across markets and banking divisions, focusing on developed and emerging economies. The firm pushes itself to become more tech-driven and digitised, working with the newest technologies and concepts – like Big Data and low-latency and algo trading. This breadth makes it easy to find your real passion. MY AREA Rates comprises Pricing, Distribution and Algo; the latter provides market-making facilities to a range of Fixed Income and Rates desks. Let me give you an example of what I do. Recently I helped develop a new internalisation platform for market-making, executing and managing Eurex futures. The focus for this was avoiding brokerage fees from external market access and rerouting flow to drive down transaction costs.
TECHNOLOGY Understanding technology in banking is a prerequisite to entering the industry. As trading activities become more digitised and automated, the demand for specialists to create, manage and maintain this new environment is huge. Projects are more intertwined and overlapped. Using existing technology and retiring legacy systems which hinder performance is a big focus, as is integrating services and products across asset classes – something which Citi’s flagship execution platform Velocity does with increasing strength, importance and appeal.
MY ADVICE Be inquisitive. Be different. Identify your unique skills and how you can differentiate yourself. UNDERSTANDING TECHNOLOGY IN BANKING IS A PREREQUISITE TO ENTERING THE INDUSTRY. AS TRADING ACTIVITIES BECOME MORE DIGITISED AND AUTOMATED, THE DEMAND FOR SPECIALISTS TO CREATE, MANAGE AND MAINTAIN THIS NEW ENVIRONMENT IS HUGE.

DEVELOPMENT DEVELOPMENT 19 18 ONCAMPUS.CITI.COM | GRADUATE OPPORTUNITIES GRADUATE OPPORTUNITIES | ONCAMPUS.CITI.COM “CITI HAS LOTS OF OPPORTUNITIES TO GROW. EVERY CHALLENGE I FACE I KNOW WILL BE A VALUABLE EXPERIENCE AND HELP ME GAIN SKILLS I NEED TO BECOME THE LEADER I WANT TO BE.” Dilasha Malla Analyst — Global Information Security We never stop learning at Citi. And that’s how it should be. Business and technology in the world of work are changing at an incredible speed. So continual learning is critical if we are to keep pace.
Through learning, we can not only improve our own performance but that of our team and Citi as a whole. But from now on, your learning will be less focused on the classroom. We have a connected approach to graduate development, which is based on the ‘3E model’ – Experience, Exposure and Education. We will provide the tools and opportunities, but you will need to be mindful and disciplined to take advantage of them. Experience Experience is an excellent teacher – through it, we can achieve great things. You’ll learn by tackling your daily workload, taking on new tasks, navigating tough situations and completing challenging assignments that take you out of your comfort zone. You can always improve on what you do, and practice YOURDEVELOPMENT STARTSHERE. does indeed make perfect. It’s also important to take time to reflect on how and what you’ve learned over the course of a day, and how you might handle a challenge you’ve faced differently next time. Exposure Learning is essentially a collaborative, social activity. You’ll grow by openly and honestly exchanging knowledge, ideas and stories with others. Your personal network, within and beyond your immediate area, will give you access to some of the most talented people in their fields and will be critical in your learning and development. Never waste an opportunity to watch others who ‘know how to’, listen to role models and experts, ask for feedback from managers (and act on it), and have meaningful conversations with colleagues, business partners and customers. Education Our structured programs are regarded throughout the industry for their high standards. Taking part in functional courses or leadership programs will prove to be invaluable in equipping you to be the best you can be in your job and preparing you for the next level in your career. Of course, program content will be key, but you should also see programs as an opportunity to interact with your peers away from the distractions of the workplace. Citi also offers an array of eLearning modules, including risk management, financial intelligence, and foundations of business strategy, as well as one-to-one coaching and mentoring when needed.
Recognition for our programs Join us as a student or graduate and you’ll take part in immersive and carefully designed programmes that have been acclaimed as some of the top in the market. We have won plenty of recognition from major organisations in recent years, including awards from the National Placement and Internship Awards, the Association of Graduate Recruiters and the National Council for Work Experience.

AAMIR I chose Citi because of its unmatched global presence, tradition of excellence and appreciation of diversity. I wanted to work in an energetic environment that provided opportunities to develop my skills across geographies. MY AREA My rotations have been in Financial Institutions (Johannesburg, South Africa), Trade Services and Finance (Lusaka, Zambia) and Channel and Enterprise Services (London, UK), where I am a product manager for CitiDirect BE Mobile and CitiDirect BE Tablet – two online channels that demonstrate Citi’s focus on innovation and digitisation. MY WORK There’s so much variety in a typical day. I start the morning prioritising tasks and managing client requests. Afternoons involve meetings and calls with colleagues from Austria to Zambia. By the evening, I’m liaising with the Global Channels team based in New York to ensure we’re on track with our planned initiatives.
THE CULTURE The strong work ethic is impressive, and the energy here is great. Opportunities are available to learn by collaborating with other teams like Marketing, Legal, Operations, Risk and Technology, gaining skills along the way. I also appreciate the support, from formal training to advice and mentoring from seniors. MY ADVICE Know what makes the company stand out. Research its key values to demonstrate you understand its business model. And keep abreast of key economic and political issues affecting the market.
MSc International Political Economy, London School of Economics Assistant Vice President, Treasury and Trade Solutions My time on the Graduate Programme followed a Summer Internship in Sales and Trading. The scheme’s six weeks of training led to rotations which allowed me to network across the trading floor and find the role that suited me best. MY AREA Rates covers many products — interest-rate futures, swaps, swaptions, exotic options and more. It’s also macroeconomic based, which means keeping up to date with current affairs. I enjoyed a fair amount of responsibility from the start, and you learn something new all the time. I also work with a great team that’s always there to help.
THE CULTURE Citi promotes diversity, drawing on a multitude of skills and cultures to drive its performance. And it runs many mentoring, equality and diversity initiatives. In many ways, the trading floor reflects this. It’s an exciting working environment that allows you to interact with a wide variety of people. OPPORTUNITIES Working at Citi means plenty of opportunities. You’ll be provided with tools and guidance. But hard work, resourcefulness and enthusiasm are invaluable. In Markets, the structure tends to be flat, so working hard to differentiate yourself from others will be rewarded. MY ADVICE Keep abreast of stories influencing the markets. Bear in mind political changes, macroeconomic variables and trends. Before interviewing, research the market and the bank you’re applying to work in so you can discuss the firm’s position and how it differs from competitors.
IT’S AN EXCITING WORKING ENVIRONMENT THAT ALLOWS YOU TO INTERACT WITH A WIDE VARIETY OF PEOPLE.

Before you begin the application process, here are some hints and tips. You’ll find more detailed help and advice at oncampus.citi.com 1. Create a great CV We’re looking for a clear, well-presented snapshot of you and your achievements. Along with your qualifications, skills and attributes, it should show us how suitable you are for the role. Make sure it’s readable and pleasing to the eye, with clearly marked sections and headings, and a maximum of two sides of A4. Stick to a standard typeface in at least 9-point font.
Don’t keep it to yourself. Get plenty of people to check over it: friends, family, career counsellors – and ideally anyone you know who already works in our industry. Accuracy is important, and a simple automatic spellcheck is often not good enough. 2. Write a great covering letter This is your chance to directly address the reasons you want a career at Citi. Tell us why you’re choosing Citi, the specific program you’re applying for, and what makes you an ideal candidate. If possible, include real examples of achievements that demonstrate your suitability. Remember to keep it short and simple – there should be no need for your letter to exceed a single side of A4. 3. Don’t be late We open our applications in September, and we do start reviewing applications immediately. That means you’ll have the best chance of success if you complete your application in advance of the deadline. 4. Do our personalities match? We look for people who relish early responsibility and tend to get bored if they’re not being challenged. An excellent academic record is important, but so is an affinity for teamwork and a tendency to take the initiative and drive things forward. Above all, you have to want to make a positive difference. 5. Check the website It’s packed with information about us and our business, the application process and our programmes. Check the FAQs section and research the business area you ideally would like to work in. Ask yourself why you want to work there – we’ll want to hear that answer too.
