Independent Advisory

M&A Analyst Internship (6 months) - New York
New York
Full-time | Internship
Deadline: 30 Aug 2019
Start date: Sep 2019, Length: 6 months

This is a very exciting opportunity to work for a rapidly growing and highly reputable international M&A boutique within an entrepreneurial environment, building on the strong experience and relationships of its partners across Europe and the United States. With offices in Paris, London, and New York, the firm is well positioned to provide tailored M&A advisory services to its clients.

The firm is currently working on a number of high profile transactions and would enable the right candidate to gain unrivalled cross-border deal exposure, working directly alongside experienced bankers.

To support our rapid growth, we are currently offering several internship positions starting in September 2019. On a case-by-case basis, the position could be structured as a contract-to-hire and may lead to a full time offer.

The candidate will be a highly entrepreneurial, driven, and polished individual, keen on working as part of a small deal team with high exposure to live transactions and minimal bureaucracy.

The candidate will possess a great understanding of the technical skills required for investment banking, the ability to perform under high pressure, strong oral and written communication skills, and exceptional sense of rigor and attention to details. The candidate is also expected to maintain strict confidentiality.

The candidate will be fluent in English and will approach everything that is undertaken with drive, determination, and enthusiasm. He or she should relish the idea of a challenging and rewarding environment. Fluency in French and Spanish is a plus.

Gap year (“césure”) or final year student. Recent college graduates are also encouraged to apply.

Candidates who have had previous investment banking/private equity/audit internships are preferred, but we will also consider, on a selective basis, those with other relevant experiences.
