Julius Baer’s eighteen-month Graduate Programme comprises three six-month assignments, one of which can be a placement at a Julius Baer office abroad. In addition to practical on-the-job training, the programme features dedicated training focusing on technical and social competencies. You will also learn about our company’s value proposition and gain in-depth knowledge of our banking business.
Julius Baer offers graduate positions in four front and back office areas: Private Banking, Advisory Solutions & Investment Management, Business Management, and Information Technology.
You will collaborate closely with a team of relationship managers in the areas of client acquisition and retention. Six of the eighteen months will be spent in an interface area (Trading, Advisory Solutions, or Investment Management) to acquire in-depth knowledge of our products and processes. You will also gain a solid understanding of the role of a relationship manager. The programme includes the option to spend a six-month training module in a foreign office to help you develop a cultural understanding of international client needs.
You will be working within the business management teams of two different corporate functions or the front area.

Your main responsibilities will be controlling, data analysis, creating reports and management presentations, project work, and process improvements – always in close collaboration with management. The programme includes the option to spend a six-month training module in a foreign office to further support you in becoming a professional, cross-border business manager.
You will be working in both our Trading team and in our Advisory Solutions or Investment Management departments.
