Are you passionate about the financial markets? Are you motivated, inquisitive and innovative? If so, join Bloomberg for a Summer Insight week from 14th – 18th August 2017.

This week will immerse you in all things Bloomberg. The focus will be on Bloomberg's Global Data and Financial Product Analytics & Sales departments, but you will be exposed to an array of topics. Think of anything from financial instruments and Terminal functionality to leadership and networking skills.

You will learn from some of the best instructors in the industry and will learn how to apply this knowledge in a practical, fast-paced business environment.

After attending the Insight Programme, you will come away with a comprehensive understanding of what Bloomberg is all about and the opportunities available to you. You'll also have the chance to interview for a space on Bloomberg's 2018 summer internship or graduate programme, depending on your year of graduation.

  •  Have an interest in pursuing a career in finance
  •  Be available to attend for the duration of the programme, 14th- 18th August 2017

  •  A desire and flexibility to learn and grow in a fast-paced environment
  •  Excellent verbal and written communication skills
  •  An ability to work well under pressure

  •  Knowledge in information technology or statistical analysis or computer programming (for example VBA, SQL, MATLAB, Python)

What is Global Data?

Bloomberg runs on data. Global Data makes Bloomberg the most sought-after data source in the world. We collect, process and present data that informs clients' decisions - and moves markets. We apply problem-solving skills to identify innovative workflow efficiencies, and implement technology solutions to enhance our systems, products and processes.
Teams in Global Data include Commodities; Corporate Finance; Derivatives; Equity Fundamentals; Economic Statistics; Fixed Income; FX; Funds, Syndicated Loans, Earnings Estimates, Indices and Technical Operations.

What is Financial Product Analytics and Sales?

As an intern or a graduate, you'll spend time working in both the Analytics and the Sales departments.


Working in Analytics is about more than providing the best user experience for Bloomberg Terminal clients. We solve complex problems with accurate, real-time responses. We proactively call clients to run training sessions and explain new functionality and we consistently surpass their expectations to develop better Bloomberg users.


Our Sales team strive to maximise growth, usage and dependency on our offerings by building strong client relationships, understanding their needs, and demonstrating proven competency in the financial markets. It's crucial we stay one step ahead, pre-empting our clients' needs and presenting them with ground breaking solutions, before they even know they need them.
