Gleacher Shacklock has an active and continuing internship and graduate recruitment programme. We look to recruit the most talented students and graduates, irrespective of degree subject or academic background onto our internships. We help individuals to grow in a collaborative and stimulating environment and are able to offer full time, permanent Analyst positions to those who impress during their internship with us.

Gleacher Shacklock is a unique organisation and as a result, the opportunity we offer to analysts and interns is very different to that of our competitors. As an analyst on a Gleacher Shacklock scheme you will be part of a three year rotation programme, where you will gain exposure across our business, including experience of different industry sectors. You will work in small deal teams, learning directly from senior bankers, on a variety of complex projects including mergers and acquisitions, restructurings and debt advisory assignments, capital markets transactions and strategic reviews. This early exposure both to senior bankers and to different business areas means you will get more responsibility and an accelerated start to your investment banking career.

In order to provide an insight into what we do, each year we offer a number of undergraduate internship positions, which give the opportunity to work as a junior member of the firm. We aim to give you a similar level of responsibility to that of a new analyst and to support you through a combination of classroom based and on the job training. There are two types of internship opportunities that we offer. The first is our six week summer internship; one intake in June and the second in August. Alongside this, we also offer a flexible, off-cycle internship with no set start date, which can vary in length from 6 weeks to 3 months depending on your situation and our business needs.


Assessment process

We have designed, along with our graduate recruitment consultants at Freshminds, a comprehensive assessment process which allows us to assess not only your aptitude for investment banking, but also your potential to thrive in the fast-paced entrepreneurial environment of Gleacher Shacklock. There are four stages to the recruitment process; each stage includes a mixture of motivational questions, aptitude tests, case studies and a team exercise.
