Most of my classmates at University took up graduate positions with banks in the US, but I was looking for greater exposure to international business and believed working in London would provide greater opportunity for cross-border deal experience. As I researched various banks, I came across the Corporate Finance Group within RBS’ banking division of GBM and as I looked into it further, I found the team and role to be a perfect fit. Initially I applied and was accepted onto the internship programme and this gave me more of an insight into the bank. I found it to be a great place to work in terms of the people and culture, and knew that, in an industry with a reputation for challenging work and long hours this aspect would be crucial in my overall experience.
I work in Corporate Finance in Mergers & Acquisitions and I’m currently on a rotation in the TMT (Technology, Media and Telecommunications) Sector Advisory team. I am involved in all steps of the project – from generating the ideas to creating the final product for our clients
