BlackRock profile

About BlackRock

BlackRock was founded 27 years ago by eight entrepreneurs who wanted to start a very different company. One that combined the best of a financial leader and a technology pioneer. One that focused on a singular purpose: making a difference in the lives of the parents and grandparents, the doctors and teachers who entrust us with their money—and their futures—every day.

Today, as the world’s largest asset manager, with more than $4.7 trillion under management, BlackRock brings together financial leadership, worldwide reach and state-of-the-art technology to provide answers to the millions of investors who entrust their financial futures to the company.

The story of BlackRock’s success rests not just with our founders, but with the thousands of talented people who have brought their ideas and energy to the firm every day since. That’s why we always look for fresh perspectives, new ideas and we view our differences as strengths. We know that our success depends on our ability to use our collective experiences and ideas to achieve more for our clients and our business. We strongly believe that diverse skill sets and perspectives lead to more innovative solutions and better results.

The work is diverse with opportunities across Advisory & Strategy, Analytics & Risk, Client Businesses, Corporate, Investments and Technology. Internship and placement programmes act as a pipeline into BlackRock’s graduate programmes. BlackRock is committed to harnessing every graduate’s potential and so the full time graduate programme begins with orientation in New York, followed by a structured curriculum of ongoing training designed to maximise business knowledge and individual effectiveness.
