Jefferies Investment Banking Interns have a unique opportunity to gain insight into a global, client-focused investment bank and experience entrepreneurial environment where employees have the opportunity to make an immediate impact and gain recognition.

Our Interns are exposed to the breadth of Jefferies’ offering across investment banking products and leading industry expertise by working closely with senior bankers on pitches and live deals. Our lean deal team structure will not only provide you with unparalleled hands-on experience, it will help you develop lasting personal and professional relationships with peers and senior bankers that will serve as the foundation for a successful career.

In addition to performing fundamental analysis and research into companies and markets, Interns are challenged to think creatively, offer their input, and add value to the team from day one. As with everyone at Jefferies, Interns are expected to pursue their projects with excellence, a collaborative spirit, and with the highest levels of integrity.

Responsibilities may include, but are not limited to:

  • Examining the strategic and financial merits of proposed transactions for marketing purposes
  • Constructing financial models and performing financial analysis of companies and assets
  • Working within a team assisting seniors in preparing marketing materials, information memoranda and data rooms, and co-ordinating the team's (transaction) processes
  • Supporting cross-business development initiatives and carrying out live transactions to include: in-depth market research (e.g. identification of acquirers/targets, transactions, market activity); detailed company profiling and analysis; compiling and handling databases; assisting with production of client presentations and documents (e.g. pitch books, information memorandums, process timetables and letters, valuation materials, etc.)
  • Analysing detailed corporate and financial information
