The best place to learn the craft
We seek entrepreneurial people who will rise to the challenge of becoming partner and are driven by building something greater, people that can independently manoeuvre themselves around all types of assignments.
We work with the most sophisticated clients in the Nordic market, both financial sponsors and industrials, that demand the highest possible quality in our advise. We therefore strive for intellectual excellence and variation in our organisation that can advise the introvert, the extrovert, the analytical, the “shooting-from-the-hip”, the leader, the follower, the structured, the messy and the “loose cannon”… Luckily the world is not a perfect place, the existence of corporate issues, problems and challenges is what justifies our existence.
We provide unparalleled transaction exposure and a steep learning curve. All our people should eventually master our craft and thrive on being a trusted advisor building long-term personal relationships. Our ambition is to offer our people a rewarding and flexible workplace. We believe in steep learning curves and that individual development comes from client exposure and responsibility.
We offer full-time off-cycle internships in the spring and fall every year. Read more about our fall 2021 internship here. Please apply by sending CV and cover letter to email@example.com. Deadline 15 February 2021.
The fall internship starts in late August and ends around Christmas, while the Spring internship begins in mid-January and ends at Midsummer.
We are offering 3-5 months internship programmes starting flexibly during the year.
Applications for the following calendar years internships will be in the previous year’s autumn.
We are always on the look-out for talented and ambitious people to join our team no matter tenure.
