Working at Numis is fast-paced, exciting and above all an inclusive collaborative environment to work within. We are not a typical financial services organisation; all voices count no matter what your background, level or years of experience.
I have chosen to work at Numis not only because it is the UK’s leading investment bank, but because of Numis’ commitment to train and develop talent from within, as part of an ongoing initiative to promote a collaborative high performance culture. As an Associate in Investment Banking my role is incredibly varied, but the focus is always on providing exceptional client service; a typical day could include providing detailed market intelligence feedback to clients following a trading update to working on a live equity transaction or preparing insightful presentations to pitch for new business. I strongly believe that the financial services industry has begun to recognise the importance of diversity, and although many stereotypes have yet to be addressed, I feel fortunate to be regularly encouraged at Numis to make the most of all opportunities provided to me.
Crucial to my role is balancing the requirements of our complex regulatory environment with a pragmatic approach together with a commercial outlook. After my first interview, I left with a very positive impression of Numis - the culture, the business, and the people. That impression has certainly been proved right - the culture at Numis is different to anywhere else I have worked.
"My managers are truly invested in my success, they listen to my ideas, offer guidance and have an open door policy".
Comparing to my previous experience, Numis really stands out from the other banks - you are rewarded with increased responsibilities and can naturally progress in your role and are able to do so while building a holistic sense of the business (both equities and M&A).
Numis is full of very bright people. This creates a high performance and dynamic work environment. It is to our advantage that as a firm we are extremely collaborative, with a very flat structure. Your colleagues value your input and you can also learn a great deal from them. I would encourage anyone looking to join the financial services industry as an intern to consider Numis at the top of their list. Your learning curve will be steep; you will work hard and be challenged every day – all with the full support of your team, colleagues and management.
