You're the brains behind our work.
You’re ready to bring your knowledge from the classroom to the trading floor, and Citi wants to help you get there. Whether it’s honing your skills or building your network, we know that success can’t come without growth. Our programs equip you with the knowledge and training you need to play a valuable role on your team and establish a long-term career here. At Citi, we value internal mobility, and career growth is not a question of if, but when.
Citi is looking for full-time Analysts to join the Markets and Securities Services business in Latin America. Our Markets Analyst Program is unlike any other; it is a highly competitive and selective program that gives you the opportunity to actively participate in the research, trading, and marketing of securities and financial products to our corporate and institutional client base. Areas of opportunity within the program include:
-Balance Sheet Management
-Corporate & Government Markets Product Offering
-Security Services
-Financial Institution Markets Product Offering

Your time here will look something like this...
You may be required to fulfill regulatory requirements that apply to the Markets area in your working country. Once this is completed, you will be given the opportunity to rotate across two different areas allowing you to develop a broader knowledge base and network within the firm. You will perform a variety of functions, adding more value as you develop. We believe our Analysts should be fully educated on all aspects of the markets. Therefore, if you spend your first rotation in Sales, you may want to switch to the Trading side of the business. We give you the opportunity to do so.
Placement occurs when you are matched with an appropriate job upon completion of the program. Our goal is to ensure that every Analyst is placed in a position that best pairs his or her skill sets and personal interests with the needs of the firm.

We provide you with the knowledge and skills you need to succeed.
