Euroclear SA/NV

Graduate IT Analyst

Euroclear SA/NV

Do you enjoy problem-solving? Do you see problems or opportunities? Interested in kick-starting a career in IT?

This is an exciting opportunity to join a City based firm delivering mission-critical infrastructure to the financial markets.

As part of an IT graduate programme, we will develop your skills in IT and Financial Markets from scratch. During the scheme you will develop programming skills which will be built upon as a designer, tester and application support analyst. You will explore different aspects of the system delivery life-cycle. Each new placement will build upon the last.

Our successful employees come from a diverse range of academic disciplines. What they all have in common is the appropriate logical, analytical mind-set and problem solving skills – we promote a collaborative team spirit, and recognize the importance of mutually supportive networks, working together to understand and meet our client needs. Applying conscientious endeavor as part of a team is valued more highly than individualistic and competitive approaches.

Your responsibilities will include designing, building and supporting software on important projects in the financial markets. Your business skills will be acquired through the Chartered Institute for Securities and Investment programme, and technical skills developed in association with The British Computer Society.

Who we are:

Euroclear is the world’s largest provider of domestic and cross-border settlement and related services for bond, equity, derivatives and fund transactions. User owned and user governed, the Euroclear group includes entities based in Belgium, Finland, France, Netherlands, Sweden and UK.

The company operates CREST, the electronic system for settling shares and other securities for the UK markets. The CREST system is of major importance to the City, and annually settles over 50 million transactions with a total value of over £250 trillion – this is the equivalent to settling around 80% of the value of UK GDP on a daily basis.

You will be joining the “Global Business Solutions” division, (GBS), who are responsible for the IT change that delivers new and enhanced services to the market under the direction of our internal business clients. In addition to this, we are at the start of a major transformation programme to modernize our systems.

Why Join Us:

Being part of Euroclear means being part of a vibrant, renowned international organization. We live our values and put people at the centre of everything we do.

You will be part of an inspiring multicultural company that plays a key role in ensuring the stability and efficiency of financial markets globally. A place to be yourself, grow and thrive!

Qualifications & required Skills:

We are not looking for previous IT or financial knowledge, and interpersonal skills are valued as highly as technical ability.
