Citi's EMEA opportunities are summarised below:

Capital markets origination

Citi's Capital Markets Origination (CMO) business - sometimes known as ECM (Equity Capital Markets) and DCM (Debt Capital Markets) - raises capital in the financial markets for its clients.

Over 15 million individual account holders enjoy a huge variety of quality products and services delivered directly to them through our 5,300 physical locations and around-the-clock internet and telephone banking.

Technology

Training and Development

Your development
Citi knows learning is a journey that shouldn't stop at graduation. It's always challenging, stretching and developing ourselves, professionally and personally, to ensure that it's always growing and making progress.

Learning with Citi
Because not all learning occurs in the classroom, Citi employs a holistic approach to graduate development that combines extensive on-the-job training with structured-classroom and virtual learning and that offers opportunities to gain insights from a network of talent throughout the organisation.

70:20:10
Citi bases its learning and development on the 70:20:10 model. This model recognises that, while training is an absolute necessity for developing a base of knowledge, only 10% of what we learn in the workplace directly comes from training. The rest of what we learn comes from learning from others (20%) and, mainly, learning on the job (70%).

Citi's graduate programmes
Citi's graduate programmes provide you with high-quality, award-winning training to give you a strong base and lots of support networks to learn from throughout your programme. Alongside this, it will provide you with the support you need to learn on the job from the day you join your desk - regardless of your background.

What does the future hold?

Citi's success is driven by its exceptional people - their passion, dedication and entrepreneurship - and it will be people just like you who will shape its future. At Citi, learning doesn't stop at graduation and there are many ways to embark on a rewarding career path, enjoying the global opportunities and long-term training and development initiatives experienced by over 240,000 employees worldwide.
