Graduate programme for candidates who can start a permanent position in October 2019.

Clearwater International focuses on providing corporate finance advice for mid-market transactions including M&A, private equity, debt advisory and restructuring services. The business has completed over 1,300 transactions worth an aggregate value of €50bn, with typical transaction values between €10m and €200m.

Their independence from any larger financial institution or consulting firm ensures that we can give truly objective advice, guiding clients through the challenges they may face. All projects are partner-led, offering high levels of expertise and personal service, and laying the groundwork for lasting relationships. Many of our clients return to us for advice on multiple occasions.

The business has 15 offices, 42 partners and more than 200 staff across Europe, North America and Asia. Our UK offices are based in London, Birmingham, Manchester and Nottingham with our UK team consisting of almost 70 experienced and ambitious corporate finance professionals.

The Graduate Programme is designed for those graduating in 2019 or before and will begin in October 2019. The programme will include classroom based training with a training company used by many of the independent corporate finance houses in London as well as larger banks. This training will help you to develop your modelling and technical skills as well as your softer skills such as presenting and negotiating.

This opportunity is open to students who are studying at a top university in the UK, or the overseas equivalent. The preferred degree disciplines are Economics, Business and Finance or quantitative degrees such as Mathematics, Engineering or Chemistry. However, we can consider those studying for a BA degree such as History, Politics, Philosophy or English if you have other experiences that demonstrate your quantitative abilities. You will be predicted to gain a 2:1 or a 1st and will have impressive school grades.

To secure a role at Clearwater International, you will need to be highly numerate with excellent writing skills. You will also be able to demonstrate strong commercial acumen and a keen interest in Corporate Finance and business through your research and reading. Previous internships within Financial Services or Professional Services will be an advantage. Many of our projects are cross-border in nature and therefore languages are an advantage but not essential.

In terms of personality and attitude, we are looking for candidates who are;

  • natural, confident communicators who enjoy relationship building,
  • at their best when working as part of a team,
  • confident in dealing with senior individuals early on in their career,
  • enthusiastic with the drive to learn quickly and take on early responsibility,
  • humble with a strong work ethic so happy to carry out more basic tasks to get the job done,
  • entrepreneurial and commercial with a genuine interest in business.
