Investment banks have already started hiring graduates and summer interns for their 2021 intakes! If you're a university student and you want an internship or graduate job next year, here are the key application deadlines you need to know for entry level jobs in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (eg. London).
If you want to be one of the 2-3% of applicants who make the cut it helps to be early. Investment banks recruit on a rolling basis. This means that although the deadlines below are the latest possible times you can get your application in, it's wise to apply soon. If applications aren't open already, they will be in a few weeks' time - most banks start accepting applications in either August or September. A lot of programmes, especially in the front office, fill up fast.
