The Role

Role Description

Worked in the Enterprise Change, Technology and Operations (ECT&O), the infrastructure division of the bank, aligned to each line of business. I worked two very diverse interesting six month placements in Business Management, working two-down from the lead of the division and in associate support on the equities trading floor. I was based both in Canary Wharf and The City during my time with the firm.
