About this role

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

BlackRock is one of the world’s preeminent asset management firms and a premier provider of global investment management, risk management and advisory services to institutional and individual investors around the world. BlackRock offers a range of solutions — from rigorous fundamental & quantitative active management approaches aimed at maximizing returns to highly efficient indexing strategies designed to give broad exposure to global capital markets. At BlackRock, we value diverse perspectives and experiences. As such, teams within our Investments business would like to invite experienced research and investing professionals who are looking to re-launch their careers after an extended absence from the workplace to participate in a paid 14-week pilot returnship. The pilot will run from approximately from September 2019 to December 2019.

This program is aimed to help participants renew their:

  • Experience through on-the-job learning of investing, including fundamental equity research and alternative investments
  • Exposure through networking and mentoring opportunities
  • Education through specific skill-based training, modelling, and financial analysis

Candidates should have significant experience conducting research and due diligence, building financial models, and assessing / synthesizing industry and financial data.

Whether this pilot returnship leads to a full-time career, or serves to sharpen the skills necessary to take the next step, it will be a valuable experience for participants to build their career portfolio.

Please note that while we hope to be able to offer the best performers opportunities to stay on full-time at BlackRock, participation in the pilot returnship does not guarantee a permanent position.
