• Rothschild & Co is Europe’s leading independent financial advisory firm.

  • We have been at the forefront of European finance for more than 200 years since the five Rothschild brothers established banks in five European countries. With established teams of experts across the continent, no international firm is better connected to local European markets. 

    This section will help you to gain an understanding of the application process, deadlines and or calendar of events.

  • Application process

    We would encourage you to conduct thorough research on Rothschild prior to applying so that you can tailor your application to our organisation and the specific business area you are interested in. We have a vast amount of information on our website that can help you prepare for the initial stages of the application process, but if you have the opportunity, please come and meet us in person. Please refer to our calendar of events for more details.

    To apply for any of our positions you must complete our online application form. The application form is your first chance to show us that you have what we are looking for and to convince us to invite you for an interview. The way you present yourself at this stage is crucial to your success. Please note that applications are reviewed on a rolling basis so early application is strongly encouraged.

    The application process varies by programme but in general candidates are asked to provide their personal details in addition to submitting a CV/resume. You will also need to submit a cover letter and answer competency based questions and complete both online verbal and numerical tests, but again this is very much dependent on the programme you are applying for.

    Please note that there are specific language requirements for some of our European offices so please ensure you meet the criteria before submitting an application. If you are studying in a European country, you may also be asked to submit grade transcripts. Please ensure you include these documents, otherwise your application will be incomplete. 

    Prior to submitting your application, please check its accuracy and make sure you have taken the time to complete the application to the best of your ability. We would also encourage you to practise completing the online verbal and numerical tests prior to submitting your application so that you are well prepared when taking the tests.

    If your application is successful you will be invited to take part in our two-stage interview process. 

    You will be invited to attend a first round interview, which is usually 30 minutes in duration with at least two people conducting the interview. You may also be asked to sit a verbal and numerical test even if you have completed this as part of your application. 

    If you perform well at the first assessment you will be invited back for a final round assessment. This is typically a panel interview with senior employees from the relevant business area. For some programmes there may also be an individual presentation or case study exercise.

    If you are successful, we will make you an offer normally within a week or two of your final round assessment. You will receive an offer letter and we will talk you through the highlights as well as answer any questions you may have.
